Coconut Chocolate Fudge

Indulge in this dairy free coconut chocolate fudge. This healthy fudge is made with coconut butter, raw honey, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt. Enjoy!

Chocolate Coconut Butter Fudge

I love fudge. But this, this Coconut Chocolate Fudge is different from any fudge I’ve ever had.

It’s like eating a dense fudgy brownie. I searched for healthy fudge recipes online and found one by a friend of mine, Lydia at Divine Health. I tried her recipe for Healthy Homemade Chocolate Butter Fudge, but I used coconut butter instead of butter (no offense butter, I still love you ♥).

This recipe is so simple, so easy, and so nourishing! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Beware of little one’s trying to steal your precious fudge. They’ll devour it all up!

    Is there a way you can make this recipe a white chocolate fudge? I cannot have regular chocolate bc of the caffeine and histamines….

    In the Coconut Cream Chocolate Fudge recipe the ingredient listed is coconut butter. Step one says coconut cream concentrate or butter. Are they used interchangeably in equal amounts?
    Thank you

    Thanks so much for this!! We’ve been enjoying it for a few days now, and just a little piece is so decadent 🙂 We used raw cacao powder and it worked very well.
    As to the clumping, I found that less heat was better and taking it off of the stovetop when adding the honey helped- I was able to add the honey and could stir to make it consistent throughout- although it was very thick, it was easy to pat/press into the pan (but much harder to wait for it to harden to try a piece!!).

    Thanks for the delicious recipe. Someone said in the comments that it tastes like a tootsie roll which I didn’t find to be true at all. It’s rich and chocolaty with a distinct coconut flavour kind of like the taste of an almond joy only way better! For those who had problems with the seizing up. It almost happened to me too. I think the problem was that I was trying to melt my coconut butter to measure it properly and it got too hot and then adding the cocoa powder and keeping it on the heat made it start to get clumpy. I took it off the heat after the coconut butter was melted and added the cocoa powder and vanilla. I used maple syrup instead of honey and I warmed the maple syrup separately and added it to the coconut, I think adding a cold liquid into the coconut butter would also make it seize up. Anyway’s, it turned out amazing and you rock, coconut mama! PS, I really think it’s essential to use good quality cocoa powder like you recommended, I used Camino and the taste is just so yummy!

    Was I suppose to melt the coconut cream completely, as soon as I added the cocoa, it clumped up!

    So bummed! Really wanted this to work, but I had the same problem as some others on here where it seized up and became a clumpy mess. I used homemade coconut butter, equal exchange organic baking cocoa, and raw honey from the farmers market. Any idea what I did wrong? It pretty much clumped and separated as soon as I added the cocoa to the melted coconut butter

    Wow! My first recipe with coconut butter…and a dessert without flour, sugar or butter in it! Yahoo! My dad and Gram were shocked to learn how natural this is…and YUMMY too! I didn’t have enough coconut butter to complete the 1 1/2 cups so I substituted almost a 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Also, as I saw another reviewer do, I added a few tbsp of coconut flakes and chopped pecans. We will definitely be using this recipe for years to come. THANK YOU!

    Thank you so much for making this recipe! My girlfriend & I just made it today and it’s absolutely fantastic! We added a bit of toppings to go along with it, hemp seeds & coconut shreds. Now we can’t stop eating it! 😀 We think we will be making this for desert everyday from now on. Lol I will be passing this recipe on to my family & friends! 🙂

    Thanks again for this wonderful recipe!

    I’m crazy for coconut butter! I love it on my oatmeal, and just plain on a spoon! I’m trying to incorporate more raw foods into my diet, and found this super easy, delicious, and nutritious fudge recipe. I replaced about half of the raw honey, and added pure maple syrup (just because I love pure maple syrup), and also used raw organic cacao powder to boost it’s nutritional value. I just have to say, thank you Coconut Mama….it’s the best fudge ever!!!

    Ps. Your “buy it here” link to coconut butter actually takes you to a coconut oil product, not coconut butter. It might confuse people who aren’t familiar with the difference. 🙂

    Hey Coconut mama! I would love to feature this recipe on my blog. However I was wondering if you have any suggestions on whether coconut oil, coconut butter, or full fat coconut milk work best in this. Let me know! Thanks!

    This tasted ALOT like tootsie roll, even followed the instructions and 100 percent sure I followed them correctly. HEHEH i love tootsie rolls. I advise you though, if youre not very fond of tootsie roll than this is NOT for you. Ive noticed the coconut mama makes recipes that taste nothing like what its suppose to be. It tastes good though, I WARN YOU, SOME OF THE RECIPES ARE DISGUSTING.:P

    Is coconut butter the same as coconut cream concentrate (Tropical Traditions) If no, what is the difference? I get confused by all the different names…. Coconut Oil, coconut butter, coconut cream, cacao butter, ect.

    I have made this a couple times. Very yummy. I also tried doing just 1 cup coconut butter and then added 1/2 cup peanut butter it was pretty awesome and a bit softer. Next time I think I’ll add mint extract for mint fudge 🙂 Thanks so much for this recipe!

    Hi coconut mama, I really love the idea of this recipe but twice now it hasn’t turned out right. First my creamed coconut (what we call it in the UK) took a very long time to melt, in fact it started to smell toasted. It wouldn’t completely melt, so I added some coconut oil to loosen it as it just wasn’t liquid. Got it just about liquid but very thick, and as soon as I added the honey it just turned into a dough-like consistency! I will chill it anyway to see how it turns out but it’s really grainy, it definitely won’t be smooth! Any ideas where I’m going wrong?

    I just made this Friday night as my first food processor / coconut butter recipe. Due to a nice glass of vodka, I burnt my first batch but was DETERMINED to get this right! The second batch turned out great, even though I had only enough coconut butter left to do 1/5 of the recipe, making it more of a fudge-bark. Long story short – DELICIOUS and I LOVE YOUR BLOG.

    Tried to make this last night. It did not turn out, even though I followed the instructions to a ‘T’ (I’m an experienced cook & baker). I think the problem was adding both the coconut butter AND the cocoa in first, when the coconut butter should have been added by itself first until it was fully melted.

    Moreover, I think the amount of coconut butter might need to be increased, since once I added the cocoa, it chunked up, and the honey did not do much to break up the chunkiness of it at that point.

      I’m sorry you had trouble with the recipe.

      I’ve made this so many times and I’ve never had a batch not turn out. What type of coconut butter did you use? Store bought? Homemade? Did you let it melt completely?

    Do you think powdered Truvia would be okay as a honey substitute? I can’t have any honey, agave, maple syrup, cane sugar, real sugar, date sugar…..but Stevia and Truvia YES! Trying to make this work somehow….
