Evan’s vegan fudge is no joke.
I can’t put it into words. I mean, look at that!
Still not sure why he’s a “wannabe” chef. As far as I’m concerned, this dessert is about as close to heaven as it gets.
For Evan’s recipe, click here. I altered mine because I didn’t have some of the ingreds on hand, so I made the following changes.
- 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
vegan butter substitutethe Earth Balance was empty when I opened it
- 1/8 cup almond milk
I combined the Tropical Traditions coconut oil and the WF vegan chocolate chips and popped them in the microwave.
After ~2 minutes it went from the above to the below. The kitchen smelled INSANE. There is truly no better aroma than melted coconut oil. You can find this out first hand soon.
At this point I added in the WF organic almond milk and the Hershey’s cocoa powder.
After mixing it all up I poured it in an 8×8 glass pan.
If you aren’t drooling yet, there’s something wrong with you. Furreal.
At this point it was still warm like chocolate syrup. *I definitely should have dipped banana slices into this to make frozen bananas covered in chocolate. Next time!
Instead, I popped it in the refrigerator to harden and set.
Best cleanup ever. :D Obviously my tongue did most the work.
Two hours of chill time in the fridge later…annnnd…voila!
I was too impatient to let it re-warm to room temp, so it was pretty hard. This also could’ve been due to the fact that I omitted the powdered sugar from the recipe. But, it was definitely sweet enough on it’s own without the extra sugar.
Evan’s fudge definitely looked more moist (and fudge-like), so I’m not sure if my changes were the cause or what. Either way, it was fabulously decadent.
The Tropical Traditions oil left a subtle coco-nutty flavor, but the chocolate was definitely center stage. I don’t think the cocoa powder was necessary. Another change I may make to future batches (because there will be many) is adding shredded coconut or crushed nuts on top.
After the first few samples, I put it away…until after dinner.
At which point, I cut a portion to dress up with creamy peanut butter.
Could you die?
Dear Evan, If you Wannabe My
Lover Personal Chef, I’d be SO okay with that. :) Wannabe or not, this kid knows what he’s doing in the kitchen.
Oh happy dessert day.
