Ingredients
  • Pitted and Chopped Dates - 300 grams (I used Lion's DessertKing Dates)
  • Raw Cashewnuts- 200 grams
  • Raw Almonds - 100 grams (with skin on)
  • Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp
  • Fruit Juice - 1 to 3 tbsp (as required) - I used Minute Maid's Mixed Fruit Juice
Instructions
  1. Combine chopped dates, cashews & almonds in a food processor. Use moist dates for this recipe. Dried ones will not give the fudges the same zing.
  2. Pulse and process all the ingredients together until the texture is coarse.
  3. Add little fruit juice at a time until it reaches a dry but moist dough consistency.
  4. Scrape the mixture into a tin lined with aluminium foil. Press evenly with a spatula.
  5. Chill for about an hour or till it sets.
  6. Remove from refrigerator and cut into desired sizes.
