Maple Fudge, Vegan!

Updated on November 14, 2013

My friend Anji sent me this recipe for Chocolate Fudge a few years ago, but I made a bit of a change to make it more Canadian. You can add chocolate chips instead to keep it as she has it, or use the vegan butterscotch chips and maple syrup for a Canadian flavour!

  • Prep time: 20 min
  • Cook time: 10 min
  • Ready in: 30 min
  • Yields: 9

Ingredients

  • 1 jar of ricemellow creme
  • 1/4 cp vegan margarine
  • 1 and 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 2 and 1/2 cups vegan butterscotch chips

Instructions

  1. In a large, heavy pot combine all ingredients except chipits.
  2. Bring to a full boil and then boil for 5 minutes more, stirring constantly.
  3. Remove from heat and add the chipits, stirring until they're all melted in.
  4. Pour into a 8x8 pan lined with parchment (for easy lifting).
  5. Cool, and then pop covered into the fridge.
  6. When cold, lift out with parchment ends and cut.
  7. For 'authentic' maple flavour you can cut back on the milk and add pure maple syrup. I buy organic grade 2, because it actually has more maple flavour than buying Grade A.
  8. Add ons:
  9. walnuts
  10. dash of maple essence
  11. You will laugh, but we even put bacon in ours!
  12. Or for the chocolate version, use chocolate chips in place of butterscotch, and add a splash of pure vanilla extract.

Fudge makes a nice hostess gift, or a stocking stuffer, just not too close to the fire!

      @sousababy: I hope you like it! I am starting to use it more as a sweetener since I've discovered the grade 2 is cheaper and has a stronger flavour;-)

      I use maple syrup in many recipes - thanks for one I've never tried before.
