Does anyone have a vegan fudge recipe they could share? I want to end up with that really dense, holiday fudge. I tried the following recipe, but it never set up--it just stayed basically in batter form (not that that isn't tasty, but not what I'm going for at my holiday party where I'm trying to serve all vegan treats).
Unsuccessful recipe:1 cup vegan chocolate chips(e.g. Trader Joe's) OR 8.5oz sweetened dark chocolate4oz natural vegan butter substitute(e.g. Earth Balance)1/2 cup powdered sugar1/4 cup non-dairy milkMany thanks, and happy holidays!
Heather: I had no idea there was such a thing as vegan condensed milk available. I really think that's the key ingredient. I just ordered some from the link you provided (it wasn't cheap--but, hey, this is fudge we're talking about, a treat without which Christmas just isn't really Christmas).
I tried Nigella's recipe using the soy condensed milk - and I had the same problem. The fudge won't set up. It ends up the consistency of thick icing instead of fudge. I'm wondering if vegan fudge just won't set up right? Gah, so disappointing. My party is in five days. Any other recipes?
Has anyone tried to use coconut milk? Maybe that would give you the consistency you need? If coconut milk doesn't work, I would try to use the thick coconut cream by refrigerating the can and using the cream on the top of the can. Good luck!
