Cashew butter blended with melted semi-sweet chocolate makes a decadent Chocolate Cashew Butter Fudge that can be topped with chopped cashews.
Pour chopped chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl or in the bowl of a double boiler.
Heat on high power for 30-second increments, stirring after each until 75% of the chocolate is melted or melt in a double boiler on the stovetop set over low heat.
Remove the chocolate from the heat (or do not put back in the microwave) and continue to stir the chocolate until all of the chunks have melted.
Stir in the cashew butter.
Pour into a non-stick tin foil-lined or parchment paper-lined 8-inch square pan.
If using, sprinkle chopped cashews over top.
Cover the pan then chill in the refrigerator for 3 hours until firm.
Remove and allow to warm to room temperature before cutting into 25 squares.
Calories include the cashews.
Without the cashews, the calories are 176 per piece.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. See the blog post for detailed instructions for freezing the fudge.
