Chilli Chocolate Top Deck Fudge

Omgomgomgomgomg OMG yum! This gear is GOOD! No sugar, healthy fats & freaking delicious! Don’t be deterred by the high fat content of coconuts, the saturated fat in coconut is made up of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids the body quickly turns into energy instead of storing as fat. Therefore, even though it’s high in saturated fat, coconut can aid in weight loss. Half the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut are composed of lauric acid, which is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Coconut can help boost the immune system. Chilli’s are loaded with vitamin C & contain capsaicin, which studies suggest that capsaicin has anti-bacterial, anti-carcinogenic, analgesic and anti-diabetic properties. Can we get a round of applause for the chilli!

Vanilla layer

1/2 cup coconut butter
1 tsp vanilla powder or extract
Dash stevia
1/2 cup vanilla or flavorless protein powder
1/2 cup coconut cream

Chilli Choc layer

1/2 cup coconut butter
1 red chilli deseeded & finely diced (leave the seeds in if you like the burn)
Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
1/4 cup raw cacao
Dash stevia
1/2 cup vanilla/Choc or flavorless protein powder
1/2 cup coconut cream

Get all your vanilla layer ingredients & blend them together. You can do it by hand, or be lazy like me and chuck it all in the food processor. Pour into a baking paper lined dish and pop it in the freezer while you do the other bit. In the same bowl/food processor (I didn’t bother rinsing it) add all the chocolate ingredients and blend/mix until smooth. Taste it, add more cayenne or stevia as required. Take the vanilla layer from the freezer, pour the chocolate layer on top and pop it in the fridge for a few hours to set. Once set, slice into square & enjoy!

    This lools unreal! Do you think I can sub something else for the protein powder in the base, maybe oat flour or almond meal because I’ve only got choc protein?

  4. Mariam you could use any of those options or coconut flour. Enjoy πŸ™‚
