Things may be busy here, but there's no way I'm letting the holiday slip by without at least one dessert recipe. I have plans for this blog in the new year. Lots of plans. More recipes is one of them, of course. I can't wait to share my ideas with you. Watch out.
We went to a holiday party last night and had to come up with something sweet to share. In our favorite procrastination fashion, we had an hour to do it. So, baking was out of the question.
The great thing about this recipe is that it has few ingredients, is quick to mix together, and freeze/set time is only 20 minutes.
Then just slice, plate, and go.
FREEZER FUDGE (VEGAN)
What you'll need . . .
- 16 ounces semi-sweet chips
- 2/3 cup full fat coconut milk
- 1 cup raw walnuts
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Extra walnuts & toppings*
Method . . .
- Line a 9" x 13" pan with wax paper. Set aside.
- In a food processor, pulse the coconut milk and walnuts until smooth. Set aside (keep in food processor).
- Put the chocolate chips in a pot over low heat on the stove. Stir continually until melted. Then add melted chocolate to food processor.
- Pulse until smooth. Add in the vanilla extract. Pulse again.
- Pour mixture into pan and smooth out.
- Crush toppings and sprinkle over top. Then cover with plastic wrap or foil and freeze for 20 minutes.
- Cut out fun shapes or just plain squares. Arrange on plate and keep frozen until ready to serve.
Prepare to be addicted to the fudge. We took one plate to the party and had enough left over for an entire plate here at the house. If you don't have all the ingredients, feel free to substitute your favorite milk substitute for the coconut milk. And cashews or another soft, raw nut for the walnuts. Dark chocolate would be divine. And maybe peppermint extract!
Oh, and can you tell we're having fun with our chalkboard walls in the kitchen? Thinking about the holidays, though, I should go. We need to get some last-minute shopping done. Hope you all have a great weekend and eat fudge!
