Ingredients

  • 5 ounces dairy-free milk
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar, organic
  • 2 cups marshmallows, vegan
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the chocolate topping:

Instructions

  • A candy thermometer makes this recipe foolproof.
  • In a medium saucepan add the dairy-free milk, dairy-free butter, and sugar.
  • Bring to a boil. Carefully clip on the candy thermometer.
  • Cook at medium-high temperature to 236 degrees. That is the soft ball stage.
  • Remove from heat and carefully remove the candy thermometer.
  • Put in all the marshmallows and stir. The heat will melt them.
  • After all are melted stir in the peanut butter and the vanilla.
  • Pour the fudge mixture into a medium sized bowl and put in the refrigerator for about 45 minutes. This will allow the fudge to harden a bit so that you can scoop it out.
  • You can use a spoon to scoop out little balls but one of those small Cookie Scoops makes it really easy.
  • Continue to scoop all of the fudge into balls. Roll them between the palms of your hands to make them in the roundest balls that you can.
  • Put the fudge balls back into the bowl and freeze 15 minutes.
  • Take out a baking sheet and lay a piece of waxed paper in the bottom. Then place a cooling rack over this. It will catch the dripping chocolate.
  • Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave at half power. Stir after a minute and continue checking every minute until it is all melted.
  • Now take the fudge out of the freezer and roll each ball in the chocolate.
  • Lift them out of the chocolate with two forks, letting extra chocolate drip back into the bowl.
  • Lay the chocolate covered balls on the rack to dry.
  • When completely cool and the chocolate has hardened remove by placing your finger under each one and pop it up off of the rack.
  • Store in a tightly covered dish or tin. They will keep in the fridge about 2 weeks or in the freezer for about 2 months.
