Toasted Sesame “Milk” Chocolate Fudge Bars

Sesame and chocolate are a match made in heaven. These fudge bars are a perfect treat to keep in the freezer for when you’re hankerin’ for a bittersweet pick me up.

I have a huge tub of tahini in the fridge so I’ve been using it non-stop this week. The tahini gives these bars a fudgy, smooth texture and the toasted sesame seeds add a bitterness that pairs really well with the sweet chocolate.

What you’ll need:

1/4 cup tahini

1/4 cup full fat coconut milk

2 dates, soaked for about 30 minutes

2 tbsp coconut butter (also known as coconut manna)

1 tbsp cocoa (add an extra tbsp if you like it dark)

3 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted

Pinch of sea salt

Stevia (optional, if you want it sweeter)

Blend up the dates and coconut milk first in a food processot and then add the coconut butter, tahini, cocoa and salt. Blend until totally smooth. Spoon into a parchment lined container, sprinkle with toasted seeds and freeze for at least 2 hours.

These came out so creamy, like real milk chocolate! You can use the chocolate fudge base as a canvas for many other ingredients like orange or mint extract, roasted almonds, cranberries…the possibilities are endless!
