Vegan Fudge and Fudgsicles

Chocolate, chocolate!  and not just any ole chocolate but rich, deeply dark fudgy yummy richness.

Not to worry no stirring and cooking a long time over a hot stove, no candy thermometer either.   And yes, it is vegan!

Fudge is smooth

And there are fudgsicles too!  They dreamiest fudgsicles that will make you say oh, wow! I want more of those!  You only need to be a kid at heart to totally love them! The are so much better than supermarket fudgsicles.

I used bittersweet chocolate for the fudge and you know that there are some types of chocolate that don’t have dairy in them.  Read the labels and you will see 🙂 -if it says milkfat or sodium caseinate then yes it has dairy in it.

Adding walnuts-yummy!

I used Guittard bittersweet chocolate.   I think semisweet chocolate would be too sweet since there is the coconut sweetened condensed milk.

For the fudge, a pinch of salt really is marvelous and I added walnuts, as that is they way I like them… not necessary and of course there are oodles of other options such as:

  • crispy rice cereal for a bit of crunch,
  • add in  a couple pinches of cayenne pepper and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon for Mexican flare
  • peanuts and drizzle of peanut butter
  • coconut and pecans  (think german chocolate flavors)
  • Mint flavoring
  • orange zest + orange oil/flavoring

After the fudge has chilled,

See? this type of loaf pan

you can leave them out on your kitchen counter,  but if it is warm, they may melt a bit so leave them in your refrigerator and take them out 10-15 minutes before you want to serve them.   Ok, it’s all your’s now, to tell me what flavor options you come up with, for your fudge.

Want some? Yum!

With the fudgsicles, the kind of coconut sweetened condensed milk you use really does matter.

Fudgesicle Ingredients

  I tried it with a couple of different kinds and I found that Natures Charm sweetened condensed milk worked wonderful but some of the others made the fudgsicles icy.  So if you you do use other brands, you will need to add a bit of cornstarch or guar gum to reduce the iciness. I’ve noted that in the recipe.  I buy Nature’s Charm at Sprouts Market.  These are really fudgy and have a nice smooth texture.

Sooo good!

Ok, love to know which of the above recipes you try, please let me know ok?

Enjoy!
