Easy Vegan Chocolate Fudge – No Fail

No fail Vegan Chocolate Fudge that’s only 3 ingredients and no candy thermometer required! This homemade chocolate fudge is everything fudge should be: Chocolatey, smooth, rich & creamy!

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!

Secret Ingredient:

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 here on Amazon.com

Sweetened Condensed Coconut milk is also excellent for making ice cream, and we have a couple rich and creamy Vegan Ice Cream recipes that you might also enjoy, like our Vegan Espresso Chip Ice Cream and our Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

If you can’t find sweetened condensed coconut milk in a store near you, here’s a recipe to make your own: Homemade Vegan Sweetened condensed Coconut Milk. And this version is refined sugar free! πŸ™‚

 

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 πŸ™‚

Would it ruin the texture of this recipe if I added a vegan dark chocolate bar to add to the richness?

Another thing is it necessary to use coconut oil, or could it be replaced with vegan butter?

I made this recipe tonight, replacing 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips with dark chocolate, and using Pink Himalayan salt instead of sea salt because I was out. Plus I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Turned out rich and delicious, but I would probably allow it to freeze in my freezer for another half hour. Thank you for this recipe.

Hi, if you were wanting to sub coconut milk for sweetened condensed coconut milk, it won’t work. You could try: https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/how-to-make-dairy-free-condensed-milk/ to make your own substitute. I’m not vegan, but was looking at this so I could make for my sil.

Could I use sweetened condensed SOY milk instead of condensed coconut milk? That’s what my local stores have.

I did your recipe (swapped out the brand of chocolate chips for another vegan brand I was able to find and I couldn’t find sweetened condensed coconut milk so I used the recipe you linked and made my own) and it turned out so good! I never made fudge before going vegan but was always a fan when I ate it and knowing I have an easy recipe in my book to make some is great! Thank you!

Help! I made this the first time and it came out so perfect and easy! Everyone loved it! Now I’ve tried to other times and it won’t set or be fudge. It’s more like gooey choolcolet sauce. So sad! I can’t figure out what’s going wrong.
