4-Ingredient Vegan Nutella Fudge

4-Ingredient Vegan Nutella Fudge

Easy and healthy Nutella fudge that requires only 4 ingredients! Dairy-free, refined sugar-free, it melts in your mouth. It’s like biteable Nutella!


  • Yield: 18 small squares

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup hazelnut butter (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 5 tbsp melted cocoa butter (get the refined one)
  • optional: 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Line a small 7×4 dish, or loaf pan with parchment paper. Use a smaller dish if you prefer thicker fudge cubes or a larger one for thinner fudge bites.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the hazelnut butter, maple syrup, and cocoa powder. Add the melted cocoa butter, and vanilla extract if using, and whisk slowly until everything is smooth and fully combined. At first, cocoa butter will stay on top but as you mix, it will start to combine with the other ingredients.
  3. Once fully smooth, pour the fudge into the prepared dish and refrigerate at least 3 hours, or until firm. Using a hot knife, cut into 18 (or less!) squares.
  4. Nutella fudge will keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Notes

If you don’t have, or can’t find hazelnut butter, make your own: Preheat oven to 350°F. Place 2 cups hazelnuts on a baking sheet and roast for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool 15 minutes. Place the hazelnuts in a clean kitchen towel and rub with your hands to remove the skins. It’s okay if there are still some left. Place the hazelnuts in a food processor and process until it becomes smooth and creamy. For a smoother texture, you can pass it through a fine sieve.
