4 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Pecan Fudge
Hello & Happy Friday!!
As a southern native, fudge was always a thing. They sold it at bakeries, people brought it to gatherings etc. However, I hate to say it, but today fudge just isn’t something you much about anymore lol. Perhaps because as a whole we’re gravitating towards healthier dessert options, but at any rate I was wondering…
Can you make a healthy vegan fudge option?
The answer is, you absolutely can!
To date I’ve made avocado truffles and things of that nature, but never a fudge. Perhaps I feared that the texture wouldn’t compare to the classic version or it wouldn’t hold up at room temperature. Whatever the case may be, I just didn’t explore fudge until recently. I’m honestly just so glad I did, because it was the most seamless process and the texture was divine.
Even as a southern bell who knows good fudge, I’d say this vegan version strongly competes!
What’s fab about this vegan fudge, is everything. It’s quick, easy, affordable, has the perf texture, the recipe is seamless, can be made in minutes, can easily be made in bulk, perf for entertaining, perf for holidays, perf for a gift, you can make countless variations with the base, you can use my favorite stevia sweetened Lily’s chocolate to cut calories, and is hands down my new favorite dessert!
