A delicious vegan freezer fudge with a rich roasted almond and chocolate flavor. All you need is 15 minutes of preparation and a few basic ingredients. You can also easily substitute some of the ingredients to create a fudge that meets your preferences!

What you need: Almonds, almond butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and salt.

How to Make Vegan Chocolate Freezer Fudge:

  • Start by roasting the almonds until lightly golden and fragrant.
  • While the almonds are roasting, add the almond butter, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, melted chocolate, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt to a medium mixing bowl. Whisk together until combined.
  • Spread the mixture in a loaf pan and top with the roasted almonds. Sprinkle with a small amount of flaky sea salt and shredded coconut if desired.
  • Place the fudge, uncovered, in the freezer for 1 hour or until solid. Cut the fudge into the shape and size that you prefer and enjoy!

Tips to Make the Best Vegan Freezer Fudge

  • Avoid using the hard almond butter at the bottom of the jar. It should be drippy and creamy.
  • Use refined coconut oil if you don’t want your fudge to have a light coconut flavor.
  • You can top the fudge with other nuts if preferred. Chopped hazelnuts, pecans or cashews would work well too.
  • I haven’t tried using other nut butters, but from experience with other recipes, they should work. You can try using a smooth, drippy peanut butter or cashew butter. Keep in mind that I can only guarantee the best results with almond butter.
