Hagrid’s Treacle Fudge (Almost)

1 packed cup dates
4 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp lucuma powder
2 tbsp coconut butter (or peanut butter if you want to put a Snickers twist on it)
Generous pinch of sea salt

1/6 cup chopped nuts of choice (again, peanuts for a Snickers version)
6 squares of your favourite dark chocolate, vegan, raw, sugarfree, whatever you wish

Pit the dates and put them in a blender/food processor along with all the other ingredients (except for the toppings) and process until your fudge is a thick, smooth paste. Spread it out in a small, lined baking dish and scatter the chopped nuts on top.
Let set in the fridge or freezer until it has set and is firm enough to cut up in 1-inch squares.

Melt the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Be careful not to let the chocolate come in contact with the water. Drizzle it on top of the fudge and keep in either the fridge or freezer, whatever suits you best. Personally, I like to keep mine in the freezer as they’re still very soft and easy to chew even when they’re frozen. That is entirely up to you though, they'll be delicious either way!
