Drool worthy fudge! Promise these little guys won’t last long 🙂

They are soft and creamy with a touch of sweetness from the stevia and the dark chocolate sauce on top makes it one happy party in the mouth.  Now you don’t have to put the chocolate sauce on top, the beet fudge is pretty darn tasty on it’s own too. But chocolate makes everything better, right?

Oh, and pair these fudge bites with some wine… creates for an even better celebration! oh picturing that right now!  Eeeek! We are so thrilled how well using beets to replace the pumpkin in our original fudge recipe worked!

The chocolate sauce on top just completes these beet fudge pieces.

So rich and oh sooo creamy! Dust with some cocoa powder for a more dramatic look.

We also used stevia in the fudge part to help make them lower in sugar, but feel free to use 2-3 tablespoons of your favorite liquid sweetener.

Ingredients

    Beet Fudge Ingredients:
  • one heaping cup of chopped steamed beets (about 8oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid stevia
  • 2-3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup softened coconut butter + 1 tablespoon (about 5 oz) *could do coconut oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons water ( I did two) ** you could do 1 tablespoon maple syrup if desired
  • Dark Chocolate Sauce ingredients:
  • 6 tablespoons raw cacao powder (1 oz) **could use regular cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut nectar (could use maple, agave or honey) (3oz)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, liquid (around 2 1/4oz)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

    To make beet fudge:
  1. Skin and chop your beets, and steam until tender.
  2. Place all ingredients into a Vitamix.
  3. For the coconut butter soften it first before measuring out 1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon. I added the one tablespoon because the 1/2 cup made it just a tad too soft so think adding in that extra tablespoon should help.
  4. Blend until smooth and creamy. This works best if all ingredients are at room temperature.
  5. Pour into your pan of choice. I used individual cheesecake mold pan.
  6. Set in freezer or fridge for 3-5 hours, or until firm to touch.
  7. Remove from pan. Or if you used a regular pan you can cut into slices and carefully remove.
  8. make chocolate sauce
  9. Gather ingredients into a large bowl and stir well.
  10. Drizzle chocolate sauce with a over your beet fudge pieces with a spoon.
  11. By using coconut nectar the chocolate sauce will be really thick and sticky, FYI, but oh sooo good. Highly recommend licking the chocolate sauce bowl when done, hehe.
  12. If you have any leftovers, store in refrigerator for 5-6 days.

Notes

set-time for fudge: 3-4 hours in freezer (leave in refrigerator)

    Can you make the chocolate sauce with stevia? How so? Does it harden?
    I need to get some beets 🙂

    Posted on February 14, 2013 at 9:29 am
    1. Ya I think doing sauce out of stevia is fine, it will probably get harder than using a liquid sweetener.

      Posted on February 14, 2013 at 10:40 am
  5. About how many does it serve? How many little cheesecake rings did you get out of it?

  7. That fudge is just too pretty! I may have to conquer my fear of beets! 🙂 I seriously think I’m going to have to make these

    Posted on February 14, 2013 at 11:21 am
  8. I found you on twitter and just read this recipe. I’m supposed to bring the kids to a Valentines party at my wife’s school. I’m thinking about making these to surprise the kids with. They sound good and I have nearly every ingredient. Quick question, you mentioned coconut nectar or agave. I have agave and I have coconut oil, if I use those instead of the homemade coconut butter, should I do anything to modify? I want these to taste the best that I can with what I have on hand.

    Posted on February 14, 2013 at 12:44 pm
    1. awesome Johnathan, and yes you can use coconut oil instead of the coconut butter so you can do the 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp coconut oil, and the agave would work in the chocolate sauce as well, there is no need to do anything different for that. And for the beet fudge part you could use 2-3 tbsp agave in fudge if you do not want to use stevia, or you could do a combo, really just taste the batter as you blending it to see if it is sweet enough 🙂

  10. What did you sprinkle on top of it, and what is the best way to peel beets without staining everything around?

    Posted on October 12, 2014 at 10:46 am
    1. They are sprinkled with cocoa powder. Best way to cut peels is to use gloves if you do not want to stain hands. EIther way beets are messy 🙂

      Posted on October 12, 2014 at 12:01 pm
  11. These look great!
    Is there a reason to cook the beets? Could the beets be raw and finely shredded?

    Posted on February 11, 2015 at 5:07 pm
    1. cooking them just helps with keeping the texture really creamy
