The Double Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cheesecake Recipe
Just one more photo haha
The Preparation Phase
2 cups of hazelnuts (or any nut you prefer)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon (or nutmeg)
3 tbs melted coconut oil
3 tbs honey (agave if you are vegan)
10 dates presoaked until soft
Pinch of sea salt
4 tbs cacao powder
Break down your nuts in the blender. Remove and place aside in a bowl. Add the cinnamon, salt and cacao powder and mix all dry ingredients by hand. Place aside. In the blender mix all remaining ingredients until you have a caramel paste. Don't mix for to long just enough to break down the dates. Now scoop your caramel mix into the nut mix and rub in by hand. Like you would a crumble until all mixed through. you do this so that the nuts don't get to finely broken down. Press into your tin and firm overnight in the fridge or freezer.
Base Cheesecake Cream
3.5 Cups of presoaked cashews drained
1/4 cup of dates presoaked
1/2 cup of date water (this is the water drained from the dates you presoaked the night prior)
3/4 cup of almond milk
1/2 cup of honey or agave
pinch of salt
3/4 cup of melted coconut oil (or cacao butter if you prefer)
Extra Ingredients for later (Don't add these until instructed)
2 Tbs Date water (this is the water drained from the dates you presoaked the night prior)
1/2 cup + 1.5 Tbs Cacao Powder
Take all ingredients from the base cheesecake cream and blend on high until a really smooth creamy mixture forms. Note the extra ingredients for later ingredients have not been added yet.
Separate the mixture into two separate bowls. Now it's time to use our extra ingredients.
To the first bowl add 1/2 cup of cacao powder, pinch of sea salt and 1 tbs of date water and blend on high. Set aside. This is Layer 3 ( Dark Chocolate ) remember this!
To the second bowl add 1.5 tbs of cacao powder and 1 tbs of date water and blend on high. set aside This is layer 1 ( Milk Chocolate ) Remember this!
So you know have a base in the freezer and two seperate bowls of cheesecake mix with different strengths of chocolate in them. Now to make the Chocolate Fudge!
