This easy fudge is dairy-free and vegan/paleo friendly! Top with your favorite nuts, seeds, or fruit!
Fudge is something my family has made for as long as I can remember. Each member of the family has their own method too. Some use sugar and cocoa powder, while others use marshmallow whip. I’ve tried them all and must admit most of those methods have always been a hit or miss for me. Sometimes I wouldn’t cook the sugar mixture long enough, causing the fudge not to set, and other times I’d cook it too long and it would harden before I could scrape it out of the pot!
I actually find that most fudge recipes are way too sweet for me. I knew there had to be a better way!
I came across a method for fool-proof fudge and I knew I had to try it! Even though it called for regular chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk, I was pretty sure dairy-free dark chocolate and my homemade Dairy-Free Sweetened Condensed Milk would work well. I even threw in some raw almonds and pomegranate arils for the added nutrients, and it turned out beautifully!
If you can’t find pomegranate arils, feel free to omit them or use something else in its place. Same with the almonds—hazelnuts, pecans, or walnuts would work well in this fudge too. Or leave it plain. It’s great either way! If you add fruit, you’ll want to keep this fudge in the fridge and allow to sit out at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before eating.
If you don’t have the time to make it yourself, you can find Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk at many “healthy” grocery stores and online.
I think this will be my go-to method for making fudge from now on. It’s quick, simple, and always delicious. That’s my favorite type of dish!
