Addictive Cinna Mocha Fudge Bites {Paleo, Vegan}

I’ve made this recipe four times in the past two weeks, so consider yourself warned 🙂

These little treats are incredibly addictive.

If you’re looking for a sweet treat chocolate fix, you have to make these!

You’ll feel like you’re biting into a rich, decadent piece of dark chocolate fudge, so it might only take one of these little guys to satisfy your craving. You can whip them up in less than 10 minutes, too. They are very easy to make!

In addition to being loaded with anti-inflammatory walnuts, antioxidant-packed cacao powder, and blood-sugar stabilizing cinnamon, the secret “mocha” ingredient is detoxifying Dandy Blend.

I dedicated a full post to Dandy Blend earlier this week, so check out that post here to learn more and order samples to try for yourself!

I was inspired to make this recipe after I had been experimenting with other chocolatey treat recipes (including these Chewy Cherry Chocolate Brownie Bites!).

I remembered seeing fudge and brownie recipes that included coffee, so I thought I’d give it a shot.

Adding a slight coffee taste (this is coming from someone who doesn’t like coffee!) to a chocolate recipe takes the flavor to a whole new level! I know you will love these as much as we do 🙂

Yield: 16-18 bites

Ingredients

2 cups raw walnuts
1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
1 cup Medjool dates, pitted (about 10-12)
1 heaping tablespoon Dandy Blend
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Add walnuts and salt to food processor and process until finely ground, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add dates, Dandy Blend, cacao powder, coconut oil, vanilla and cinnamon to food processor. Process until combined – about 60 seconds.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Using your hands, form into small round balls, rolling them in your palm. Sprinkle with additional cacao powder, if you’d like.

**Store in a glass container in the fridge (or freezer) for up to two weeks – if they last that long! They will start to melt at room temperature because of the coconut oil, so keep them cool 🙂

    Rachel,
    If we don’t drink coffee and don’t have the Dandy Blend, do you think it will still be good without it?

    • Hi, Amy! Yes! They would still be good without it. It just adds another dimension of flavor (and this is coming from a non-coffee drinker!). They will be more like Mexican brownies (chocolate + cinnamon) than mocha brownies, that’s all 🙂 They will be great either way!
