I’ve been wanting something besides ice cream for dessert lately, but I also wanted it to be super simple. I didn’t want to spend too long in the kitchen putting together anything. While surfing delicious looking vegan sites just for some ideas to my upcoming yoga-venture, I saw a few fudge ideas and thought it was the perfect solution. These peanut butter fudge may be vegan, but do contain two cups of powdered sugar…so not the healthiest. One or two slices are enough to content my sweet tooth. Pair this with a nice glass of almond milk and it’s the perfect combination!
This fudge takes coconut oil, and it did retain a hint of the coconut flavor. Personally, I thought it added a bit to the overall flavor. However, if you really really really don’t like coconut, you can swap it for either a vegan butter (to keep it vegan) or regular butter. It was warm enough in my house to easily scoop out the oil. Usually I have to fight with it a bit to get it out of the jar…especially in winter.
You really do need to keep this in the freezer as it does have a tendency to melt a bit when left out. No matter how solid it is, it’s still peanut butter delicious. This fudge is made in one bowl and the microwave! No stove needed, which is a huge boon during this heatwave. With fudge this easy to make, I may have a freezer stocked full in the future!
