Easy Fudge- Dairy Free!

So, I was shopping the other day and found a new product- sweetened condensed coconut milk!  It looks like this:

I bought the can without any specific plan in mind, but I knew it would come in handy.  I vaguely remembered avoiding some recipes because I didn’t know how to duplicate sweetened condensed milk.  So one day when my husband was driving home after a long day, I remembered this can and the simple fudge recipe I used in junior high, and I was able to make a quick treat for us.  It is simple and delicious and the texture turned out well- no candy thermometer required!

 

Easy Dairy Free Fudge

Ingredients:

2 c. chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips)

1 can sweetened condensed coconut milk

1 T. butter (I used SmartBalance)

dash salt

1 tsp vanilla

1 c. chopped walnuts (may omit if desired or may be substituted for other nuts)

Parchment or wax paper

 

Directions:

Melt chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly.  Once the chips are mostly melted, add the butter, salt, and vanilla.  When the mixture is smooth, remove from heat and stir in the chopped walnuts.

Pour into a wax or parchment paper lined 8×8 pan and allow to cool.  Once it is close to room temperature, you may put it in the fridge to chill.  Once it is chilled, cover and let set for 2 hours or until you are able to cut it with a knife.  Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.  My dairy free and dairy loving friends and family gobbled this up.

I eat gluten, dairy, and egg free and want to make food that other people would want to eat too.
