Which woman doesn’t like a nice piece of chocolate? At night combined with a cup of tea on the couch or during the day, actually it doesn’t matter when, chocolate is always a good idea, if you ask me. The disadvantage of chocolate is that it usually contains a lot of refined sugars. A delicious recipe with chocolate that is healthy as well, that is the best it could get.​
I love chocolate and used to buy dark chocolate bars with nuts in it. Somehow a moment came when I started eating more healthy and stopped eating chocolate bars as well. But a woman can’t live without chocolate of course. Like I wrote in my first blog post, my mum started eating more healthy. She started eating Paleo (low-carb). Since she does this she is in the kitchen very often and found a lot of delicious recipes and tried them. One of them is this one that I of course made to my own liking.

Preparation time:  5 minutes
Cooling time:           2 hours
Amount:                      10 – 15 pieces fudge​
Special Products:


  • Baking paper
  • Brownie mold


This recipe is not 100% organic, because the nuts are not organically available. All other ingredients are organic.
  • 120 grams coconut oil
  • 75 grams honey*
  • 40 grams raw cacao powder
  • 75 grams nut butter
  • 75 grams raw, unsalted nuts
*Can be replaced by a plant based sweetener to make this recipe vegan
How to make it?

Put the coconut oil in a small pan and melt on low heat fire, set aside when it has melted.

In the meantime you can chop the nuts. If you prefer you can also leave them as a whole or chop in big pieces. If you want really small pieces of nut you can even use the food processor to crunch them.

Set the nuts aside. Grab a big bowl and put the coconut oil in it, combined with the honey, cacao powder and nut butter. Mix properly. Because the nut butter is quite sticky you have to mix properly. Make sure no pieces are left in the mixture. When you have a smooth, properly mixed mixture you can add the nuts. Mix them through to make sure they are well divided throughout the entire mixture.

Grab the brownie mold. Unfortunately I don’t yet have one. My cookie tin does have the perfect sizes for this fudge, so I used that. You can also use a different mold as long as you make sure it is not too big (the fudge will get too thin) or too small (the fudge will get too thick). Put a piece of baking paper in the mold and carefully divide the mixture over it. Set in the fridge for at least 2 hours to harden.

After 2 hours you can get the mold out of the fridge and cut the fudge. Keep the fudge in the fridge because it melts really quickly.

I like it a lot if you make one of my recipes and I am very curious to see the end result. Let me know how it turned out. You can tag Organic Happiness on Facebook or Instagram @organichappinessblog and use the hashtag #organichappiness
