Easy no bake Chocolate Nut Raspberry fridge Cake

When I tell you this deliciously rich, no bake Chocolate nut and raspberry fridge cake is the ultimate treat, and super easy to make,  I really mean it. Plus as an added bonus it has some surprisingly healthy ingredients in it.  So break out a slab of dark chocolate or two and get your freshest nuts for an overnight cake that will knock the socks off any other chocolate dessert you have tasted in a very long time.

Chocolate-raspberry-mousse-cakeThe chocolate and raspberry filling is a perfect combination which I absolutely love, and this filling can be used for a variety of other desserts.  The raspberry does amazing things to the taste of the chocolate, so make sure you have this very important ingredient.

Yes, it does have cream and chocolate in it, but its all about the amazing base, made with almonds and cashews, dates, syrup, coconut oil and cacao ( or cocoa powder if you can’t get cacao).  These are blended together to form a thick  base, which when chilled in the fridge forms a delicious crust for the chocolate filling. Its a totally different taste to your basic  fridge cake recipe , so why not try it and see what you think.  You will be pleasantly surprised.

Chocolate and cream

The base is sprinkled with toasted macadamia nuts and then topped with the chocolate filling, and then refrigerated overnight.   Serve with a dash of vanilla bean ice cream or as is.

    I love the idea of raspberries. Can you taste them in the chocolate

    • Reply Shades of Cinnamon May 12, 2015 at 11:29 AM

      Hi Tracey – yes there is a beautiful raspberry flavour to the chocolate which I think is quite unique. It would also make a lovely mousse.

      Thanks Jenn it really is – the base is so delicious to use with other fillings as well. I am working on a key lime pie using avocado. I think its going to be amazing, as well as being super healthy.

    Looks great, does it need double cream or single cream, or what is the fat level of the cream to be please. This makes a big difference to the success of the pud.

    • Reply Shades of Cinnamon July 12, 2015 at 12:52 AM

      Hi Christine, I used a single cream, as the slabs of chocolate are sufficient to firm the chocolate filling. If you use a double cream the chocolate filling is definitely firmer. Its a matter of preference as I have tried both and preferred the softer consistency.
