Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge Sauce

chocolate fudge sauce- sugar free

This chocolate fudge sauce is rich and chocolaty. 
It is very easy to make, has no added sugars, and is gluten-free, vegan, oil-free, dairy-free and parve. Yes, you have seen it before.

This super delicious fudge sauce calls for dates instead of any kind of sugar. Despite using dates for the sweetener, it is rich tasting and the chocolate fudge sauce doesn't taste like dates.

Dates, Dried, Food, Dried Fruits, Sweet
You may have seen my recipes peanut sauce and caramel sauce on my (link) Apple Nachos post a few weeks ago as well as this chocolate fudge sauce.  So many readers asked about this sauce, that I decided that it had to have its own post, so it could be found easily in a search under its own name. 

With only 3 ingredients, it's quick and easy to make in the blender. It could be used on top of "nice" cream (vegan ice cream), muffins, cookies, etc. or of course my (link) Apple Nachos dessert.

How would you use it? 

Sweet and Rich Chocolate Fudge Sauce 

8-10 pitted dates
3/4 cup of nut milk 
2 tablespoons of unsweetened organic cocoa powder (I buy this one (link) unsweetened organic cocoa powder.

Very Easy Directions:
Combine dates and nut milk in a small bowl. Allow to soak for 15 minutes to soften up dates. Add the unsweetened cocoa powder and the date mixture into a small blender such as a Nutribullet. 

Blend until smooth and pour (scrape) mixture into a very small saucepan. Heat on a low flame, whisking the entire time, until mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat and spoon into a small glass ramekin. Use as a dip or drizzle some over the apple slices.  

cocoa powder


1. This recipe makes a small ramekin such as the photo above. However, it is so rich and sweet, you will not need a lot. Adding more nut milk will thin it out somewhat but also reduce the flavor.

2. I buy (link)  unsweetened organic cocoa powder on amazon but I have also seen organic unsweetened cocoa powder at TJ Maxx and Marshalls in their food sections.

3. As of February 2021- all of my recipes are 100%vegan and oil-free. They have always been and will remain gluten-free. Prior to 2021, you will also find many vegan recipes- but also vegetarian recipes.
