Not only is this fudge easy to make and delicious, but it’s also gluten, dairy, corn, soy and nut free, making it the perfect dessert to bring to a birthday, holiday or office party! No need to worry about someone feeling left out because they can’t eat your yummy dessert.
The best thing about this recipe is how unbelievably easy it is to make. Seriously, you can do this even if you feel you have no prior candy making experience! Simply melt everything together either in the microwave at 30 second intervals (or using a double boiler if you’re a little more advanced), place it in the freezer to set, cut into squares and enjoy!
The secret ingredient that makes this fudge recipe vegan is sweetened condensed coconut milk by a company called Nature’s Charm. Condensed milk is just that, condensed – meaning that most of the liquid has been eliminated. This makes it great for desserts where you want a low water content so it stays rich and thick. Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk can be purchased at Sprouts, Whole Foods or Amazon.

An Important tip when melting chocolate:
When melting chocolate: Make sure not to let any water get into the bowl, not even one drop. This will clump it up and make it unusable. I like to take a paper towel and wipe the inside of the bowl that I’m using to make sure it is completely dry.
Lastly, I should also mention that this is the exact recipe I make for the movie studios here in Los Angeles. What can I say…it’s just that good!! Okay, let’s make some fudge 🙂
