Seasonal Recipes: Hazelnut Milk and Dark Chocolate Fudge

Hazelnut Milk and Dark Chocolate Fudge

Inspired by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s recipe in The Joy of Vegan Baking.

This fudge requires very few ingredients and is simple and quick to make.  It stores very well for a week or more, if kept in the fridge.


340g Dairy-free Dark Chocolate Buttons

6 Tbsp Vitalite, with extra for greasing the tin

350g Icing Sugar

64g Cocoa Powder, sifted

1tsp Vanilla Essence

60ml Alpro Hazelnut Milk


Baking parchment, for lining the tin

Square or Rectangular baking tin (the smaller the tin, the thicker the fudge later)

Two saucepans (one large one and a smaller one that will fit inside)

Wooden spoon

Large sharp knife

Chopping board


  1. Grease a square or rectangular baking tin and line with baking parchment that overlaps the sides (this will make the fudge easier to lift out and cut later.)
  2. Add the chocolate, vitalite, cocoa powder, vanilla essence and milk into the small saucepan.
  3. Place the small saucepan into the bigger saucepan and surround by boiling water.
  4. Stir until all of the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  5. Pour the mixture into the greased tin.
  6. Chill for 3-4 hours in the fridge
  7. When the mixture has set, lift it out of the tin, using the baking parchment, onto a chopping board
  8. Cut the fudge to size
  9. Enjoy with a glass of hazelnut milk, or keep in the fridge in an airtight tin.
