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

Ingredients needed to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
It’s not a vegan recipe however you could probably swap out the sweetened condensed milk with full-fat coconut milk (don’t use light coconut milk; I have had less than stellar results with light coconut milk in vegan fudge).  Just a guess that full fat coconut milk would work here.


3 Minute Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter 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.

When mixture is smooth, pour batter into a baking dish and refrigerate for 30 minutes or more. When ready to serve, cut into squares.  Store extra fudge in refrigerator or freezer.  I have successfully stored this for months in the freezer.


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.

Skylar was begging me for some.  “Please, Mommy, Pretty Please?

But the child of a food blogger knows:

Pictures First.  Then, Eat.

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 hereTwo 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!

Please Check out my Chocolate Recipes Post for Ideas & Recipes!  Especially with holiday baking season coming up!

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!

  1. Hello, how much coconut milk should I use to substitute de condensed milk(I don’t have condensed milk in my country)?

    Thank you!

    1. I don’t know – I haven’t tried it with coconut milk. You will need to play around with the sugar and milk amounts. Adding only coconut milk will not be enough; you will need to add sugar too.

  2. You said no added white sugar fudge but condensed milk is “sweetened condensed milk” made with white sugar?

    1. Sweetened condensed milk has sugar in it, yes. I didn’t add any white sugar into the mixture or recipe. If you’ve ever made fudge, you know how grainy, granular and sometimes gritty and crystalized fudge can get when working with white sugar and how careful you have to be so your fudge sets up properly, and doesn’t crystallize. This recipe avoids any of those pitfalls.
