Vegan Chocolate Fudge

Vegan Chocolate Fudge Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 30 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 20 minutes


1/2 cup Vegan Butter/Margarine (112g)

2 Tbsp Golden Syrup or Maple Syrup

1/2 cup Soy Milk (120ml) or any non-dairy milk

2 cups White Granulated Sugar (400g)

1 and 1/2 cups Vegan Condensed Milk (360ml)

1/2 cup Cocoa Powder (42g) Unsweetened


1Prepare all the fudge ingredients and have your candy thermometer standing by.

2Spray the tray your fudge will go into with non-stick spray.

3Have your electric whisk standing by (if you're using this method).

4With all your ingredients lined up next to you and your baking pan sprayed and ready and your whisk on standby, you're ready to begin.

5Melt the butter in a thick bottomed pot or pan.

6Add the syrup, soy milk and sugar and stir until the sugar is completely melted.

7You will know the sugar is completely melted when your wooden spoon no longer makes the scraping sound when stirring.

8Add the condensed milk and keep stirring.

9Then add your cocoa powder and using a hand whisk quickly whisk it in to remove any lumps.

10Stir the boiling mixture on high heat continuously until it reaches soft ball stage according to your sugar thermometer (about 12-15 minutes)

11Remove from heat and allow to cool for a minute and then transfer to your baking tray.

12Using an electric mixer beat the fudge directly in the baking tray until it gets very thick and stiff and starts to set. Cut into squares while still warm and then leave to cool completely.

13Alternatively if you want to hand beat the fudge and allow for a slightly softer texture, follow these steps. Once soft ball stage is reached, remove from the heat and leave the sugar thermometer in the pot. Watch the temperature as it cools and leave it to cool to 230°F (110°C). Then begin to stir the fudge vigorously with your wooden spoon for a couple of minutes until it starts to get very thick. The color will also change from shiny and glossy to matt. Immediately transfer to your baking tray and smooth down. Cut into squares and enjoy!
