Antioxidants, healthy fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals? They’re all in here.
This dairy-free, refined sugar-free, vegan, gluten-free treat is made with only 5 ingredients.
What makes this fudge so creamy is the condensed coconut milk.
I was so happy to find out how easy it is to make your own, as it’s an amazing base for many plant-based desserts.
Here is how to make your own condensed coconut milk.
Vegan chocolate peanut butter fudge
1 cup / 250 ml condensed coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup / 120 grams cacao powder
1/2 cup / 125 grams natural peanut butter
Cover a mold or bowl with a sheet of parchment paper. This will help you get the fudge out easier afterwards.
Put half of the condensed coconut milk in a medium saucepan over low heat.
Mix in the cacao powder and stir for about 5 minutes until it’s all equally mixed.
Remove from heat and mix in the vanilla extract.
Pour the mixture into the mold or bowl and put into the fridge to set.
Once it’s almost solid but still soft, you can put the peanut butter layer on top.
Peanut butter layer:
Put the rest of the condensed coconut milk in a medium saucepan over low heat.
Mix in the peanut butter and stir for about 5 minutes until it’s all equally mixed.
Remove from heat and add the vanilla extract.
Pour the mixture on top of the chocolate layer.
Place the fudge into the fridge to set for a few hours.
Cut into squares and store in a sealed container in the fridge.
The fudge tends to get softer when it’s outside of the fridge, so serve and eat it quickly!
