If you’re tired of showing up to holiday parties that are void of any of the sweets that fit into your dietary lifestyle, this vegan white fudge is the perfect treat to bring your hosts to share. It’s dairy-free, vegan, grain-free, and gluten-free… but doesn’t compromise taste in any way!
VEGAN WHITE FUDGE INGREDIENTS
12 ounces Cacao Butter or Dairy-Free White Chocolate
2 cans Full Fat Coconut Milk
½ cup Organic Cane Sugar
⅛ teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 teaspoon Real Vanilla Extract
1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
½ cup Organic Confectioners Sugar
1 cup Ground Raw Pecan
⅛ teaspoon Ceylon Cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon Ground Clove
⅛ teaspoon Allspice
VEGAN WHITE FUDGE ASSEMBLY
1 | Place the chopped cacao butter or white chocolate in a medium-sized bowl and set aside. Also line a 9-inch square baking dish with parchment and set aside.
2 | Pour both cans of coconut milk, cane sugar, allspice, clove, cinnamon, and kosher salt in a medium-sized saucepan, placing over medium-high heat and stirring until the coconut milk is completely melted and the mixture bubbles. (Note: keep stirring over the flame as the liquid bubbles off and the mixture reduces. Reducing your mixture will ensure your fudge stands up.)
3 | After 8-10 minutes, the mixture will coat the back of a spoon and will not appear overly drippy. The mixture is done when it has reduced by approximately half.
4 | Pour the mixture into the bowl of cacao butter, immediately stirring to melt it.
5 | Add vanilla, coconut oil, and confectioners sugar, stirring until smooth. Allow the mixture to cool for about 5-7 minutes. Fold in ground pecans.
6 | Scrape the mixture into the baking dish and smooth the top with a silicone spatula.
7 | Place the fudge in the refrigerator to cool until it sets for 1 to 3 hours.
8 | Once set, cut into squares and serve.
