This dairy-free, refined sugar-free, vegan, gluten-free treat is made with only 5 ingredients, if you make your own condensed milk. If you use store-bought condensed milk only 4 ingredients for double flavored fudge!
What makes this fudge so creamy is the condensed coconut milk.
I was so happyto find out how easy it is to make your own as it makes an amazing base for many plant-based desserts.
1 cup condensed coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
For the chocolate layer:
Cover a mold or bowl with a sheet of parchment paper. This well help you get the fudge out easier afterwards.
Put half of the condensed 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 saucepan and put into the fridge to set.
Once it’s almost solid but still soft, you can put the peanut butter layer on top.
For the peanut butter layer:
Put the rest of the condensed 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 into the saucepan 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 the fridge.
The fudge tends to get softer when it’s outside of the fridge, so it’s best served immediately!
