No-Cook Chocolate Fudge Sauce

Updated: May 11, 2022

Ready for an EASY, no-cook, chocolate fudge sauce that will change your life forever? Your prayers have been answered.

(Or maybe it was my prayers. Someone's prayers have definitely been answered.)

No-cook chocolate fudge sauce

This five ingredient chocolate sauce requires NO HEAT so you won't have to worry about burning the chocolate or trying to figure out how to use a double boiler. And bonus, kids and easily make this. (Shhh….don't tell them that it’s naturally whole food, plant-based, oil-free, dairy-free, gluten-free.)

How and why I created this no-cook chocolate fudge sauce

This sauce was created out of necessity. We were running a kids cooking class without access to heat.

I wanted to make banana "nice-cream" sundaes in the class so, of course, we needed chocolate sauce! I thought, how can I make a creamy, tasty chocolate sauce that doesn't need need to melt coconut oil or chocolate like all the other non-dairy chocolate sauces?

I had some tahini and maple syrup on hand and voila! No-cook chocolate sauce. Chef Gabby was my first taste tester and said, "YUM". I knew I had a winner!

Whole Food Ingredients

This no-cook chocolate fudge sauce is secretly good for you. Let's break down the whole food ingredients.....


Tahini is a sesame seed paste. For this recipe I love the brand Mighty Sesame Co. organic tahini. It comes in a squeeze bottle and is nicely smooth and thin - which makes it perfect for this application.

Two tablespoons has 8 grams of plant protein, 1 gram fiber, and 40mg calcium!

Tahini is great in salad dressings, sauces, hummus, as a replacement for peanut butter in recipes, and this chocolate fudge sauce!

Cacao powder

Cacao powder has so many benefits. It's packed with something called flavonoids - nutrients that help manage blood pressure, cholesterol, and contains iron, protein, magnesium, potassium and fiber. I love the Navitas Organics brand.

Do not confuse cacao powder with cocoa powder which is a processed form of cacao where the nutrients have been removed.

Maple syrup

Maple syrup is a natural sweetener made from the sap of maple trees.

According to the US Department of Agriculture, maple syrup contains minerals: calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, and zinc. The vitamins in maple syrup include thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and B6 (to name a few!)

Vanilla extract

Vanilla is shown to have antioxidant, antidepressant, and antimicrobial properties....but who cares about all that? It's simply delicious!

Sea salt

Sea salt, when used in moderation, offers trace minerals, balances fluids and contains electrolytes.

Way to use No-cook Chocolate Fudge Sauce

  • Dip fresh fruit

  • Use it as a cake filling

  • Top brownies with it for extra fudginess

  • Drizzle over banana nice cream (blended, frozen bananas) - the sauce CAN be heated after it's made and is sooooo good on cold stuff

  • Pour over pancakes

  • Spoon over warm apple pie

  • Dip waffles or homemade donuts
