Vegan White Chocolate Cranberry Fudge
Loaded with tart dried cranberries, salted cashews, and a little dash of pure orange extract, this vegan white chocolate cranberry fudge is bursting with holiday flavor. An easy no-bake vegan fudge recipe that comes together in a snap and will wow a crowd this Christmas season. I bet you won’t be able to eat just one piece.
How To Make Fudge Vegan
The first step for this scrumptious vegan white chocolate cranberry fudge is vegan white chocolate chips. These are going to make up the base/bulk of the fudge. I’ll add a link to the ones I used down in the recipe.
A second addition to vegan fudge is sweetened condensed coconut milk. Basically the vegan equivalent to sweetened condensed milk, it’s truly glorious for baking and all things sweet treats.
Coconut oil is the third and final vegan ingredient needed for this ultra-luxe fudge recipe.
Can I Make This Fudge “Normal?”
Yes! This vegan fudge recipe works 100% with regular non-vegan ingredients. Trade in the vegan white chocolate chips for regular white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed coconut milk or regular canned sweetened condensed milk, and plain old butter for the coconut oil.
How to Make White Chocolate Cranberry Fudge
Fudge can often feel intimidating. All those special candy-making tools and equipment aren’t exactly in every kitchen. No special tools are needed here for this fudge. Woohoo! Seven simple ingredients with seven simple steps.
The base of this fudge is created by combining and melting the first three ingredients together over medium-low heat in a heavy-bottomed pan. Don’t rush this step and risk burning the white chocolate. Make sure you stir the mixture every few minutes and as they say, slow and steady wins the race.
After the first three ingredients have been melted, add in the remaining items. Cranberries, cashews, salt, and a splash of orange extract get mixed in with that glorious fudge base to create a smooth and wonderfully flavorful fudge. Top it with a few spare cranberries and cashews should you have any leftovers for that extra dash of pretty presentation. Into the fridge this fudge goes to set for at least 1 hour or until fully firm.
