California Medley Fudge (Grain-free, Dairy-free, Naturally Sweetened)

A month or so ago, on my way home from Vermont, I got hungry.

d0c4054ec49b11e28dc022000ae90fd2_7 I hadn’t packed my own snacks, so I had to stop at a gas station and scrounge around for something that I wanted to eat.

I usually don’t buy trail mix, but this one caught my eye.

California Medley, it read.

Pistachios, Almonds, craisins and raisins.

Sounded good to me.

While I was munching on my California Medley, I couldn’t help but think how much better it would taste surrounded by fudge.

So I created some California Medley Fudge.


California Medley Fudge (Grain-free, Dairy-free, Naturally Sweetened)
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
The base for this fudge is from Coconut Mama's Coconut Cream Fudge Recipe.
  • 1½ cups coconut butter
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup Grade B Maple Syrup
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ cup tart cherries
  • ¼ cup pistachios
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup pecans
  1. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt the coconut butter, cocoa, vanilla and maple syrup.
  2. Stir in the tart cherries, raisins, nuts and sea salt.
  3. Spread the fudge into a greased glass baking dish and refrigerate for about 4 hours, or until firm.


I love the combination of sweet, salty and tart in this fudge.


It makes it kind of addicting.


Well, not “kind of”…definitely addicting.

Cold fudge for a hot day.
