Vegan Chickpea Freezer Fudge

This is my recipe for a delicious Vegan Chickpea Freezer Fudge, that is not only gluten and dairy-free but also fuss-free, as you pop the mixture straight into a tray to freeze. No candy thermometer needed! I have tested the recipe 4 times, so it’s foolproof too!

What Ingredients do you need?

Most fudge recipes call for sugar, butter and condensed milk. Mine is a little bit healthier in that I have used canned chickpeas, sugar-free peanut butter, maple syrup, icing sugar, vanilla essence and 70% or higher dark chocolate.

What’s the process?

Vegan Chickpea Freezer Fudge

This Vegan Chickpea Freezer Fudge is very simple to make – you only need a food processor / big blender (a Nutribullet is too small) and a 20 – 25 cm square baking tray to freeze the fudge in. After the fudge mix is frozen, you melt dark chocolate, pour over the fudge, and freeze again.

That is it – so no overly complicated processes here, just delicious fudge, ready in no time at all.

Why Freezer Fudge?

Vegan Fudge doesn’t contain any condensed milk or boiled sugar (which is boiled to reach a certain temperature), so it needs to be kept in the freezer to hold its shape.

You can take a slice out, leave it for about two minutes at room temperature, and then eat.

It can keep for 2 months in an airtight container and you can make double the mixture to make big batches in advance.

Equipment

  • Square Baking Tray (20 - 24cm)
  • Food Processor or Blender (not Nutribullet)
  • Small saucepan
  • measuring cups

Ingredients

  • 2 cans chickpeas thouroughly drained
  • 1 cup sugar free peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence or extract
  • 1 pinch sea salt

For Topping

  • 100 g 70% Dark Chocolate

Instructions

  • Once your chickpeas are rinsed and drained add them to a blender with all of the ingredients (except the chocolate)
  • Blend together until smooth. The mixture should resemble a pliable dough but if it is too thick add another teaspoon of maple syrup.
  • Spoon the mixture out into a square baking tray, lined with baking paper, spreading out evenly.
  • Freeze the fudge for an hour
  • Melt 100g dark chocolate (broken up pieces) in a saucepan over very low heat, stirring until all the chocolate is melted.
  • Pour the chocolate over the frozen fudge mixture. Freeze for another two hours or overnight.
  • Cut the fudge into squares and eat or freeze to eat later.

Notes

Remember the fudge will soften if kept out of the freezer for longer than 15 minutes.
