Hi Friends! I hope you’ve had a nice, relaxing, long holiday weekend! I hope it was filled with mellow times with friends, family, and loved ones. And that you ate, drank, and were merry!
I was merry after this rich, dense, 3-ingredient, no white sugar added fudge.
Since my pan of Vegan Gluten Free Rice Krispie Treats with Chocolate Frosting that I made for Thanksgiving was gone….
….And I had an event that I needed to quickly whip up a dessert for, I decided to make 3 Minute Microwave Fudge
1.5 c chocolate chips
1/2 c sweetened condensed milk
1/4 c peanut butter
1 tablespoon water
Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Heat on full power for 30 seconds, then remove and stir. Heat again for another 30 seconds, then stir again. Mixture should be smooth by this point, but you may need to microwave it 1-2 more times in 30 second increments depending on your microwave. You can also melt this mixture over a double boiler if you do not want to use a microwave.
I didn’t actually use measuring cups. I just eyeballed everything and threw it in a bowl. As I always do. Measuring cups just create extra dishes.
Into the freezer it went….
…and out came this fudge!
Skylar was begging me for some. “Please, Mommy, Pretty Please?”
But the child of a food blogger knows:
Pictures First. Then, Eat.
I have Vegan Chocolate Frosting which could easily be turned into chocolate fudge if you double the batch
And also Raw Vegan Coconut Oil Chocolate
Here are some other fudgey recipe gems from friends:
Katie has a drool-worthy and easy Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge
Evan has a great fast and easy vegan fudge recipe
Alisa has some lovely dairy-free mint truffles she just made
And I know tons more of you have (vegan) chocolate and fudge recipes.
From yesterday’s post on having a dichotomous nature, it was fun to hear how some of your traits are at odds with each other, or on opposite ends of the spectrum. Interesting to hear some of your very black and then very white sides. Check out what everyone said here. Two sides to every coin, right! We all are a bit like that, I think. Thanks for playing along and filling me in on your quirks; super fun to read!

1. Best Thing You Did or Ate over the weekend?
I spent time with my family, I cooked a Thanksgiving meal and cleaned up, 100% by myself, from start to finish. And Scott’s still thanking me. So that was a “best thing” for me.
2. Do you like Fudge?
Is the Pope Catholic? Yes for me for sure!
3. Do you like to do Holiday Baking?
I don’t do “holiday baking” per se because I am usually gone over the holidays but I love to bake in general. I haven’t always been this way! No, my god when I was in my early 20s my idea of baking was going to see what Whole Foods or the Corner Bakery had!
4. What recipes are you dying to try out for the first time?
I want to check off all the friends’ recipes off my baking list. However, I am running out of time before my trip to make quite that many desserts…haha!
5. Any tried and true recipes that you make for the holidays that you plan to make again?
I am usually traveling over the winter holidays so nothing jumps out at me that I will “make” again. Oh wait, yes, a pina colada. I will have one of those again. Even though I may order it out, and not “make” it myself. haha!
Have a great week, everyone! I’m off to get my 20 minute at-home workout in!
