For the fudge base:
Place the cashews in your food processor and crush until very finely ground. Be careful not to over process the nuts, because then you will get butter.

Add the shredded coconut and process until everything is well combined and fine in texture. Put in the pitted dates and process till you see a soft paste forming. Put in the cacao powder and process again till everything is combined.

Now it is time for the maple syrup. Pour it in, add a pinch of salt and combine until you get a rich creamy texture. Scrap the sides if needed with a silicone spatula. Then press firmly into an 20×20 cm pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle some more sea salt for extra taste. Place the fudge base in the fridge.

For the ganache topping:
In the food processor blend together the maple syrup and the coconut oil until well combined. Give it some time and help with a silicone spatula if it gets stuck in the sides. Add in the cacao powder and a pinch of salt and process until everything is smooth enough.

Pour carefully the ganache over the fudge base and spread it evenly on top with your spatula. Take your nut variation and sprinkle evenly over your fudge. Let it cool in the fridge for at least one hour. Cut into square pieces and serve them cold. You can preserve the fudge in the fridge for one week.
