Fudge is such a delicious, creamy candy that is usually made with a base of butter, sugar and milk. Its not too sweet, perfectly soft, smooth and so addicting!

My version is probably the easiest sweet treat I’ve made so far. All you need is 3 ingredients, a saucepan and a baking dish. It’s also vegan, paleo, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and keto-friendly!

This fudge is fantastic for parties, snacking or dessert. It’s hard to eat just one, and with my version having way less sugar than a classic fudge recipe, you can go ahead and eat 2 or 3 or 6!

What are the best chocolate chips to use?

If you are paleo or vegan my absolute favorite chocolate chips are HU chocolate Gems. (affiliate link)

If you are keto I love the “Bake Believe” brand or the “Thrive Market” brand of keto chocolate chips. (affiliate link)

What toppings can I put on top?

Walnuts, peanut butter swirled on top, crushed peppermint candy, or crushed peanut butter cups are amazing on top of this fudge recipe! The options are endless.

Simply freeze the fudge for about 30 minutes, to let it set (otherwise the toppings will drop to the bottom of the fudge rather than stay on top) then put the toppings on top. Let it to continue to harden in the freezer with the toppings.

What can I substitute tahini for?

Any nut butter you have on hand will be great in this recipe. Be aware that peanut butter does have a strong peanut flavor, so adding it will make this recipe taste more like peanut butter chocolate (not a bad problem). Almond butter, cashew butter, and tahini are all more neutral-tasting in this recipe.

  • Pour all ingredients chocolate chips, coconut milk and tahini in a sauce pan.
  • Turn the saucepan on LOW heat. Whisk constantly until it melts completely and everything is well combined. Be sure to stir constantly and keep it melting at low heat, you do not want burnt chocolate! Mine took about 5 minutes to melt completely. As soon as it is melted remove from heat.
  • Pour the melted mixture into a parchment lined 8 by 8 inch square baking dish. (You can use a wider dish, the fudge will just be thinner than pictured.)
  • Spread the mixture evenly in the dish , sprinkle with flaky sea salt (optional, but highly recommend) and then place it in the freezer to harden for at least 2 hours. Once it hardens, slice and ENJOY!


Store in the fridge for up to one week. 
These freeze perfectly for much longer. Just slice before freezing and take out whenever you want a sweet treat. Let thaw for a few minutes and enjoy!
