The World's Easiest Dairy-Free Fudge
Prep time

Total time
This is a soft, but slice-able fudge that melts in your mouth. Make sure to choose good quality chocolate chips for the best results. And be patient! It does take a little time to set up. This is not reflected in the Prep time, which is hands-on time only.
Serves: about 24 fudge pieces
  1. Line an 8x4-inch or 9x5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Put the chocolate and milk beverage in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on HIGH for 1 minute. Stir vigorously. Microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring well in between each, until the chocolate is just melted and smooth. Do not overheat it.
  3. Stir in the vanilla and salt until well combined. Stir in the nuts, if using.
  4. Scrape the chocolate mixture into your prepared loaf pan and even it out.
  5. Refrigerate the chocolate until firm, about 4 hours.
  6. Remove the fudge using the paper, flip it onto a cutting board, and peel off the paper. Cut it into pieces to serve. It should keep at room temperature, but you can refrigerate or freeze the fudge to preserve freshness.
Milk Beverage: When picking your milk beverage, richer is better. Both soymilk and coconut milk beverage work well, and lite coconut milk is a good option, too. Other milk beverages will likely work, but we haven't tested them yet.
