Vegan Chocolate Mint Fudge

by Jill Dalton

Wow! You aren’t going to believe that this isn’t bad for you, it tastes that good! I am not usually that excited about fudge because it is way too sweet and it makes my teeth hurt. Not to mention that I just plain don’t eat it anymore because it is loaded with sugar and dairy. Well, no need to worry. This recipe is plant based, refined sugar free and no dairy to be found.

It is super rich, super tasty and super easy to make!

If i do not have food processor how will I go about it

You might be able to do it in a blender by pulsing it.

Hello! I was wondering if you could give me the name of the black cocoa powder you mentioned in this episode. Thanks for your time!

Hello Rebekah,
It is from Fontier Food co-op.
I was ordering from affordably but they don’t carry it anymore

Awesome thank you so much! I love your show by the way! My seven year old daughter and I made your chocolate cheesecake the other day and it was out of this world delicious!!

The recipe calls for 1 cup of raw cashews, but I didn’t see you add them in the video. Are they optional?

I’ve made this recipe twice now, both as double batches. It is so delicious and is gone by the second day. I was wondering though how long this would last in the fridge? I want to prep for Thanksgiving!

It will last a couple weeks in the fridge.

So easy. So delicious! Thank you.

Wow! Delicious. I had been craving those Andes mints I used to have years ago, and this hit the spot! So ridiculously easy to make, so simple and fast and soooo tasty. Except I didn’t have almond butter so I used peanut butter plus threw a few whole almonds into blend with it all. Will definitely make this again and for friends! Thanks so much for making these great recipes that still taste like indulgence! My husband liked them as well!
