An extremely easy raw recipe from The Complete Book of Raw Food by Julie Rodwell (Hatherleigh Press, 2004). They use carob powder but I prefer cacao powder.

3 1/2 c raw walnuts
1 3/4 c pitted dates, soaked in water
1/2 c cacao powder
1/2 c dessicated coconut, optional

Grind walnuts in a food processor until it resembles breadcrumbs. Make date paste in a blender with soaked dates and enough of the soaking water to make a paste. Mix walnuts, date paste, cacao and coconut in a bowl. Firmly press into square cake tin and put in fridge to set. Cut into whatever shapes you choose. I found the fudge a bit sticky so I put the pieces in a dehydrator for a couple of hours to make the pieces easy to eat for our toddler.
