Let’s agree with one thing- fudge should melt in your mouth. But it should also be simple to make. And this recipe is simple; you will only need 1 bowl. This recipe’s texture, taste, and simplicity will make you come back for more. You don’t need a blender, a food processor, an oven or a stove. All you need is one bowl, simple ingredients, and a freezer.
This fudge might be your new rich, salty, earthy, sweet treat. It is sweetened with maple syrup, but you can also use date syrup if you wish.
This rich, salty-sweet dessert is made with just 6 ingredients in 30 minutes and 1 bowl.
While this recipe is simple, it has an incredible texture. This no bake treat is fudgy sticky, but it melts in your mouth.
One of the reasons this recipe is so simple is that there is no food processor involved. Contrary to for example coconut butter (often used in vegan fudge recipes), tahini is a soft seed butter that can be mixed with a spatula. And tahini transforms into an incredible fudge consistency in the freezer.
This means that you can make this recipe entirely in 1 bowl with a spatula.
INGREDIENTS FOR TAHINI CHOCOLATE VEGAN FUDGE
For this delicious fudge recipe, you will only need 6 simple ingredients.
Creamy pale tahini
Tahini is made from ground sesame seeds and is typically found in the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cultures. It is often used in hummus, dressings, dips, spreads, or sweet recipes.
In hulled tahini, the outer shells of the sesame are removed, so the tahini is paler and creamier. Technically speaking, you could use unhulled tahini for this recipe, but I don’t recommend it. Unhulled tahini is less creamy since the outer shell (kernel) is not removed, and the whole sesame seeds are used. You will notice that unhulled tahini is slightly darker with a more robust flavor and a hint of bitterness.
Tahini has an earthy, slightly bitter flavor, and it’s creamy. Hulled tahini pairs well with sweet flavors without an overpowering bitter taste.
Full fat coconut milk
The recipe relies on a fat source to keep its form when removed from the freezer, so opt for full-fat coconut milk.
The sweetener should be a syrup-based sweetener, such as pure maple syrup. But you can also naturally sweeten this recipe with date syrup; you may have to use more date syrup to balance the flavors.
A good quality vanilla extract enhances all the other flavors in the fudge. Without it, the fudge can taste a bit flat.
This recipe is a salted tahini chocolate vegan fudge, so you need salt. Go for a good quality sea salt if you can. Salt will enhance the sweet and earthy flavors of this fudge too.
Unsweetened cacao powder or raw cacao
Use unsweetened cacao powder or raw cacao powder to create a deep chocolate flavor. Both are delicious in this recipe, but if you have only cocoa powder on hand, feel free to use that too. Those beans are fermented, roasted, and then processed at a much higher temperature.
HOW TO MAKE TAHINI CHOCOLATE VEGAN FUDGE
When you have the ingredients ready for the fudge, combine the ingredients in a bowl until smooth.
Start with the tahini and add the other liquid ingredients, so the coconut milk and maple syrup. Then add the salt vanilla extract, and finish with the cacao powder for that rich, chocolaty flavor.
With a spatula, combine everything until you have a paste consistency. It should be sticky and well combined.
When you have managed not to eat the fudge, press the fudge into a parchment-lined dish. Freeze for at least 30 minutes, slice into squares, and you are ready to indulge.
This delicious and easy treat will be your new favorite one to keep in the freezer.
