Festive Fruit & Nut Fudge (Guest Post: @spamellab)

This delicious take on a festive favourite is so easy to make and requires only 6 staple ingredients! As you have many optional add ins, you really can make this recipe your own!

Serves: 12

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 2 hours chilling time

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons tahini (I used Meridian)
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter (I used Meridian)
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup or molasses (for a richer flavour! I used Meridian)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (I used Lucy Bee)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (OR a dash of your favourite booze – brandy or rum would work amazingly!)
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice

Add ins: Feel free to use whatever dried fruits, nuts and seeds you wish (about 6 tablespoons in total)

I used:

  • Chopped cooked chestnut (Merchant Gourmet are great)
  • Dried cranberries
  • Mixed dried fruit
  • Seeds (I used Apple & Cinnamon Good4U snacks)
  • Chopped dried apple (Nim’s Fruit Crisps are ideal)

To decorate: Pumpkin seeds, bee pollen and dried cranberries

  1. Place the tahini, almond butter, maple syrup/molasses and coconut oil in a small pan and heat gently to melt.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and mixed spice.
  3. Now stir in your chosen add ins and mix to coat.
  4. Spoon into a small lined tupperware box or silicone mold (one large one or individual) and smooth out evenly.
  5. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours to firm.
  6. When you’re ready to serve, simply pop out of the freezer and slice up into chunks. Top with extras if you wish – now enjoy straight away!
