Rich and creamy dairy-free fudge with a combination of chocolate and peanut butter for the yummiest of treats.


  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 cup of dairy-free buttery spread, melted, Smart Balance or Earth Balance
  • 4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, gluten-free
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Lightly grease a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray or buttery spread. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the sugar and cocoa powder.
  • Add the peanut butter to the melted dairy-free butter to soften it. Mix in the vanilla extract. The mixture doesn’t need to be smooth at this point.
  • Add the buttery mixture to sugar mixture and stir until completely combined and smooth.
  • Spread evenly into the baking dish. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting. 


Store fudge covered in the refrigerator. Fudge can be frozen in an air-tight container for 2-3 months. Place pieces of wax paper or parchment paper in between the layers.
