Sometimes you end up developing such a delicious recipe, you find yourself almost licking the pot (’almost’ just because you can’t fit your head in the pot). If you’ve been looking for something easy, naturally sweetened, healthy treat, don’t look any further. If you also happen to love toffee or fudge and blueberries, I can almost guarantee you: here is the recipe you have been looking for.
These raw lucuma blueberry fudge bars are not only delicious, but also easy to make. All you need is a blender, your ingredients, and a pot to pour the fudge mass to cool down in the fridge.
These fudge bars are sweetened by lucuma and honey, while the peanut butter in them brings a rich thick texture to them. Blueberries are a wonderfully fresh addition to them (and they look so pretty, as well!), and using cacao butter keeps the consistency good for a long time after the bars have solidified.
So, you can easily keep these out on the serving table for even a couple of hours, although for longer keeping I do suggest keeping them covered in the fridge. I performed a test with the last piece of fudge at our summer cottage, and the fudge laid on the serving plate on a side table for about three hours before my dad walked in and ate it (’I thought someone had forgotten it there’), so that test ended a bit prematurely. According to my dad the texture was still good, though, and obviously the taste was okay, too, ha ha.
Lucuma Blueberry Fudge
1,5 dl cacao butter
3 Tbsp peanut butter (sugar-free and as smooth as possible)
1,2 dl lucuma powder
1–2 Tbsp maple syryp or other sweetener of choice
a sprinkle or two of salt
a sprinkle of vanilla powder
a handful or two of fresh blue berries
Melt the cacao butter in a warm water bath or in a pot on low heat. Add in the peanut butter and syrup, mix until smooth. Take the pot of the heat and mix in the lucuma, salt and vanilla. Check the taste, and try not to eat any more. (For me this is the hardest part of the recipe.) Cover a tin with baking sheet and pour the fudge mass into the tin. Sprinkle the fresh blue berries on top of the fudge. Move the fudge into the fridge or the freezer to cool down. Once the fudge has solidified, cut out pieces in the shape and size you wish – e.g. bars or smaller cubes. Ready!
I might have mentioned the following a few times before, but I will risk repeating myself: these bars are s u p e r scrumptious!
