Super easy 3-ingredient vegan fudge. Rich and wonderfully textured and ready in 5 minutes. Made with homemade vegan condensed milk.
This delicious vegan fudge is just 3-ingredients and takes 5-minutes to make.
Well, let me be more clear.
It uses vegan condensed milk as one of the ingredients, so unless you buy that off the shelf you’ll have to make that first. I have a super easy recipe for it and it is exactly what I used for this fudge. It’s not only easy, it’s super quick and made up in the blender. So it doesn’t add much time to this at all.
So once you have your condensed milk ready, then putting this fudge together is a 5-minute job.
And the result is quite unexpected. It’s quite different from all the other fudge I’ve made. It’s not snappy like some of the fudges that have that crystallized sugar (looking at you vegan fudge). This fudge is chewy! But in the best way.
It actually reminded us of one of the quality street chocolates we used to eat. I don’t know which one, but it has the sort of taste and texture of something you would find in a box of chocolates.
Basically – it’s just very very good
How To Make 3 Ingredient Vegan Fudge
- So once you’ve got your homemade vegan condensed milk made or your store-bought option ready to go, then spray an 8×8 square dish with non-stick spray and then line it with parchment paper so that there is overhang on either side.
- Then add your vegan condensed milk to a microwave safe bowl and then add in some chocolate chips or chopped vegan chocolate.
- Microwave in 30-second intervals bringing it out to stir every 30-seconds until it’s all melted together. Add in some vanilla extract and stir in.
- Pour out into your prepared 8×8 dish and smooth down. The mix may be very thick and won’t necessarily reach the edges (or it might, I’ve had it go both ways), but if it doesn’t just smooth it down as best you can.
- Place into the freezer to set. Once it has set, lift out the whole block of fudge using the parchment paper overhang and cut it into squares.
Homemade Vegan Condensed Milk
The best results for this fudge come from using our homemade vegan condensed milk recipe. This recipe is made with either soy milk powder or rice milk powder, sugar, hot water, coconut oil and salt and then you blend it. It’s too easy!
We tested this fudge with homemade condensed milks made with soy milk powder and with rice milk powder and didn’t notice any significant difference in the outcome. So you can use either of those options.
You can definitely also use a store-bought brand of vegan condensed milk and we tested this recipe with vegan condensed coconut milk and it worked just fine, but I didn’t think it was quite AS good as the version with the homemade condensed milk. But that’s entirely up to you as to what works out easiest.
Storing and Freezing
It keeps perfectly in the fridge for a week or more – sorry, it hasn’t lasted longer than a week for us so I haven’t checked beyond that, but I reckon it could easily last longer too, sugar is a great preserver.
You can also just leave it in the freezer and then it will last for ages. It is perfect edible straight out of the freezer and doesn’t need to thaw first. So if you want it to last a while then just store it in the freezer and serve it straight from there.

3 Ingredient Vegan Fudge
- Spray an 8x8 square dish with non-stick spray and then line it with parchment paper so that there is overhang on either side. Set aside.
- Add the condensed milk to a microwave safe bowl and then add in the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate.
- Place into the microwave and heat in 30-second intervals bringing out to stir every 30-seconds until melted and smooth.
- Add in the vanilla extract and stir in.
- Pour out into your prepared 8x8 square dish. The fudge mixture might be quite thick and won't spread out to the corners of the dish, this isn't an issue, just smooth it down on top with the bottom of a spoon so that it is as even as possible.
- Place into the freezer to set.
- When it has set, lift out the whole block of fudge by lifting the parchment paper and cut it into squares.
- Keep stored in the fridge OR freezer and enjoy.
- If you'd like to make your own homemade vegan condensed milk recipe to use in this recipe, then you can just use the full batch. I have tested this fudge with both a rice milk powder based homemade condensed milk and a soy milk powder based homemade condensed milk. Both versions were amazing and I didn't notice any difference in taste or texture.
- I have also tested this recipe with a store-bought vegan condensed coconut milk and it also works perfectly, so either/or is fine to use.
- I generally prefer using chopped chocolate rather than chocolate chips for this recipe as it can be better tasting, but you can use either/or. If you're using chopped vegan chocolate, then use any good tasting vegan chocolate that you can chop up.
