Best Ever Vegan Fudge

DSC_0194Don’t you just love fudge?  And who wouldn’t love fudge with chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch and marshmallow?  The result is a perfect blend of all those yummy flavors.  It is creamy and delicious and so simple to make!  I made it a lot when my kids were younger but I stopped making it once we became vegan because I couldn’t find vegan butterscotch chips.  Until now, that is!  YAY!  I found vegan butterscotch chips (click here), ran home to make this fudge, tweaked it a little bit and it is perfection; even better than I remember!  Before making it, I will always have to make sure I have the butterscotch chips and the vegan marshmallows on hand, because both can be hard to find in stores and may need to be ordered online, but this fudge is so well worth any extra effort that I will still be making it often.  And just so you know, if you use regular marshmallows, they contain gelatin, which is made by boiling bones, skin, connective tissue and organs of various animals such as cows, pigs, lambs and horses.  Infinitely better to prepare in advance and get one of these vegan brands (Dandies or Sweet & Sara) at a specialty store or online.  Enjoy!

  • 12 oz vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 c peanut butter
  • 1 T vegan butter
  • 1 c vegan butterscotch chips
  • 8 oz vegan mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/4 t vanilla

Lightly oil an 8×8” pan, then line with a large piece of plastic wrap so that the piece drapes well over the sides of the pan.

In a medium size pan, melt the chocolate, peanut butter, “butter,” butterscotch and salt over medium heat, stirring until smooth.

    • Hi Kimber. I have not tried it myself, but I think it would still taste great if you used cashew butter or almond butter instead of peanut butter. If you are trying to avoid all nuts, perhaps sunflower seed butter, or I would replace the peanut butter with 1/2 cup more each of chocolate chips and butterscotch chips and add in one more tablespoon of butter for softness. Let me know how it comes out! :)
