Vegan Chocolate Macadamia Nut Fudge
Raw. Gluten-free. Easy to make. Sugar-free. Dairy-free. High in protein.
Y’all needa get on this. I absolutely loved fudge when I was younger - it was one of my weaknesses, along with rotis, cucumber, bread and butter pudding, and chocolate bars. Not much has changed expect I now eat almost all of the above, vegano-style. I have yet to find a vegan bread and butter pudding though. The name doesn’t seem like I will find anything promising. :( Anyone maybe have a butter-free recipe for me?
Right. But back to more important things - to the fudge! I actually looked at the ingredients of store-bought fudge the other day while doing my weekly shopping (I was craving it and secretly hoping it would somehow be vegan #wishfulthinking) and was genuinely horrified at the list. Sugar, condensed milk, more dairy, more sugar… all kinds of nasty, unhealthy things. No thanks.
So to ensure I can have my fudge and still eat it, guilt-free, I was inspired to make my own that would be made with healthy, vegan ingredients and satisfy my sweet-tooth.
And as such, these glorious mounds of chocolatey fudge were born!
