These Raw Vegan Chocolate Fudge Hearts are probably the quickest and easiest treats you can make because they only need 4 ingredients and a food processor to make.
They are naturally sweetened with medjool dates and get their dark fudge flavor from raw cacao powder with a hint of vanilla bean.
I made them into cute little heart shapes using an inexpensive silicone heart mold, but you could also make them into truffles or even try to shape them by hand.
And, I topped some of them with raw cacao nibs, but you could also use shredded coconut flakes, goji berries, crushed nuts (like pistachios, hazelnuts or walnuts) or even mini chocolate chips (not raw).
They're a no-bake dessert that's also raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugar.
