Dairy Free Chocolate Fudge

I really enjoy making fudge...throughout the year, but especially at the holidays. For several years, I have been working on creating a recipe to provide a special fudge treat to my dairy-allergic children. I think we have finally come up with a perfect fudge recipe. I fed it to someone without telling them it was dairy free, and they loved it, and then didn't believe that it had no milk, cream, or butter.

Here is the recipe I created, with some links to some of the specialty products that are required to make it. {These are Amazon affiliate links - if you click through them, and purchase, I will receive a small commission}

Dairy Free Chocolate Fudge

3/4 c. dairy free butter, plus 2 TBS for buttering the pan - (I use Earth Balance Buttery sticks,            available in soy or non-soy versions)
3 c. sugar
3/4 c. hot water
1/3 c. Dari-Free chocolate powder
1 package of Enjoy Life chocolate chips
7 oz. marshmallow fluff
3 tsp. vanilla extract (or you can use mint extract for a flavor variation)

Prepare a 9x13 pan by generously buttering it with the 2 TBS of Earth Balance butter. Measure out fluff and extract and set aside. In a medium sauce pot, mix together the 3/4 c. Earth Balance butter, sugar, hot water, and Dari-Free powder. Stir over medium heat until all the sugar is dissolved. Increase heat slightly and bring to a boil. Patiently keep stirring. When mixture reaches a full, rolling boil, continue boiling for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and quickly mix in entire package of chips and the fluff. Stir until completely smooth. Pour in extract and stir until blended. Pour entire mixture into the pre-greased pan and allow to chill for at least 4 hours before cutting. Enjoy!

  1. glad you found something your kids can eat. Fudge is loved by EVERYone, I think. :)
    Here from Home to 4

  2. We have been trying (without much success) to go wheat-free. I did go a full month without wheat and there were times I wondered if I may need to also go dairy-free. We love peanut butter fudge in our house, but a bit of a change up may be nice. We will definitely need to try this.
    I would love for you to stop by and share on my weekly recipe link up, Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen. Here is the link to this week's linky:

  3. We love fudge here, too. This is a great recipe. My mom cannot have dairy, so I will definitely make this for when we see her. Thanks for linking up with "Try a New Recipe Tuesday." I hope you will be able to join us again this week.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
