Dairy-free Fudge

I saw this post for 5-minute dairy-free fudge and had to give it a try.  Honestly, you would never know that it was dairy-free...it was amazing. :) Below is the recipe with my adaptations based on what I had in the house. Make sure to check out the link, because she has different variations of it, as well. Enjoy!

5-minute Fudge

1 Cup Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips
3-1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
2 Tablespoons Soy-Free Margarine
1/2 Cup Dairy-Free Milk (I used the So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk)
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract


Lightly grease an 8 x 8 inch square baking pan.
In a large bowl, combine the chocolate chips, sugar, and cocoa. Separately, place the margarine and coconut milk in a small saucepan, and stir together over medium heat. Cook the mixture until the margarine has melted, and bubbles just begin to break at the surface. Remove it from the stove, and immediately pour over the chocolate mixture. Let everything sit for a couple of minutes, and then stir vigorously to melt the chocolate and incorporate the dry ingredients. Continue stirring until a completely smooth mixture forms. Mix in the vanilla, and quickly pour everything into your prepared pan. Smooth out the top. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.

Makes 32 Small Squares


5-minute Peppermint Fudge

Same ingredients as above, plus 1 teaspoon peppermint extract and crushed up candy canes, however many looks good to you.

When you add the vanilla to the fudge, add in the extract and 2/3 of the crushed up candy canes.  After smoothing into the greased pan top with remaining candy canes.

  3. I posted an easy dairy free fudge this week, but your recipe sounds better since it is soy free. Thanks for sharing it.
