Beetroot chocolate fudge slice.

This beetroot chocolate fudge slice is actually a new and improved recipe of our OG choc beetroot cake. Yes, Carla has made this recipe like 5 times in the last month so YOU KNOW it’s going to be a good recipe. 

There really are only a few changes but they are good enough to warrant a whole new recipe! The key change is swapping cacao butter to your regular dairy butter. It creates this epic rich fudgy taste. 

When we made this epic healthy chocolate fudge slice last we were in Canberra and we got our organic butter from Supabarn. We love Supabarn because they have all the stuff regular supermarkets have but they also have all the options we want, without having to go to a special health food store or the markets. It’s all about convenience! And yes they do sell cacao butter too! Talk about amazing.

So if you’ve never made a healthy cake with beetroot. We suggest, no, we insist you give this beetroot chocolate fudge slice recipe a try. Then taste it. Then let us know what you think! 

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla
