Raw Fudge Spread (Vegan, GF, Paleo)

I have a lot of dates this week. 

In my pantry MUAHAHAHA. As I sat in my favorite coffee shop, these dates - locked up in a jar, just dying to be eaten, along with my beloved cacao powder that I’ve used a total of probably four spoonfuls of - came to mind.

I felt like Raven Simone when she had a vision of the future. Except this vision was unlike any Raven had ever experienced.

It was a rich, chocolate-y, fudge spread made from – you guessed it – dates and cacao powder (and a little agave).

I polished the sandwich off rather quickly and forgot to take a picture to show you, but since this stuff is good on everything

Here it is on a banana - it was the perfect snack while making waffles for my dad.

Makes about ¾ cup

½ cup pitted dates, plus a few more*
2 tbsp. cacao powder
1 tbsp. agave nectar

1.     Put the dates in a blender or food processor and process until smooth (you can add a little water if you need to). Pour in the agave and cacao powder and blend again.
2.     Refrigerate or serve immediately.

*my dates were soft already, but if you need to, you can soak them in water for at least 30 mins before blending to make the blending easier.
