Vegan Fudge is easy to make and so delicious! This vegan fudge recipe is made with coconut oil and is dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free and Paleo!
One thing you will notice about most seaside vacation towns is that there is usually a fudge shop. It is almost a tradition to get fudge on vacation in the summer. In an effort to control the ingredients, I am making my own fudge these days. It is more cost effective too. I can partake in the usual tradition, and not miss out, just in a little different way.

Vegan Fudge Tips:

Chocolate Vegan Fudge:
I chose macadamia nuts but other nuts would work in this recipe. I also like homemade nut butters in this recipe>>>>For example, cashew butter is a great nut butter. And almond butter works great as well.
Vegan fudge recipe with cocoa powder. It is fine to substitute cocoa powder for the cacao powder in this recipe. I really like the cacao powder because it is less processed.
I hope you enjoy this Vegan Fudge if you try it!
The BEST Vegan Fudge! A delicious, healthier alternative to traditional fudge recipes. Grain, gluten and dairy free.
- 1 cup One macadamia nut butter (2 cups dry roasted macadamia nuts)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/3 cup cacao powder (I prefer raw, organic)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon chopped macadamia nuts
Prepare a 4 x 8 baking dish (this is the size of a bread baking pan) by lining with plastic wrap (my preference) or parchment paper.
Make the macadamia nut butter by placing 2 cups dry roasted macadamia nuts in a small food processor. It doesn't take long for the nuts to become creamy and this is the consistency you want.
In a medium-sized bowl, add macadamia nut butter, coconut oil, cacao powder, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Stir to combine thoroughly.
Pour mixture into prepared 4 x 8 pan, smooth out the top and make sure mixture is even thickness.
Sprinkle chopped macadamia nuts and chocolate chips over the top. You may want to press these in slightly with your hands to make sure they stick to the fudge.
Place in freezer for at least an hour, preferably three, or until completely hard and solid.
Take the fudge out of the plan by removing the plastic wrap with fudge on it.
Using a knife, slice fudge into serving size pieces. Store in freezer.
