Vegan Candy Cane Fudge Recipe (gluten-free)


This delicious vegan peppermint candy cane fudge recipe is so fast and easy to make! It's a must-have addition to our Christmas dessert tray every single year. It boasts a simple, incredibly tasty chocolate fudge base with a festive crushed peppermint candy cane topping.

Originally, I posted this vegan fudge recipe as part of a Christmas Cookie Week collaboration with other bloggers. Posting a whole week of vegan Christmas cookies at the time forced me to start my holiday baking early, which is a good thing! Truth be told, though, I tend to eat quite a few of the Christmas cookies before Christmas if I bake them ahead of time. Fortunately this vegan candy cane fudge recipe is so easy and fast to make that you can make it, eat it all and make it again...and again!

If you're on the hunt for other sweet and delicious vegan Christmas dessert recipes, check out some of the other recipes I posted during Christmas Cookie Week. Monday's recipe was Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Day two was Vegan Toffee Squares. One of our biggest family favourites is No Bake Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Balls. (I highly recommend them, decadent as they are.) 


This vegan candy cane fudge is especially easy to prepare if you line your loaf pan with parchment paper. All you have to do is heat up the ingredients in a double boiler or stainless steel bowl placed over boiling water. Then pour the rich chocolate fudge batter in the prepared loaf pan, sprinkle crushed candy canes on top and pop it in the fridge to set. That's it.

Like the peanut butter balls, this yummy treat is gluten-free. (Be sure to look for gluten-free candy canes.) Wrap a batch of this chocolate fudge up in a festive tin and you have a nice hostess gift for your vegan, gluten-free or sweet-loving friend! My husband and the kids agreed that this fudge is delicious, which is saying a lot because the husband doesn't give compliments that easily.


This festive vegan fudge has a pleasant hint of peppermint flavour and a nice crunch from the candy cane topping. No one will have any idea it's vegan, so you can confidently serve it to all of your guests, no matter their eating preferences.

Cut this tempting candy cane fudge into small squares to serve. It's not the kind of thing you normally want to eat a giant wedge of (it's rich with chocolatey flavour), but if you do, you can always grab some more. 

I like to cut up the fudge and put it in a cookie tin on layers of wax paper. Freeze it if you won't be eating your fudge right away. (You can eat it practically straight out of the freezer too.) Store it in the fridge for a few days if you want to nibble away at it. I actually prefer to keep this fudge in the freezer all the time.

Are you a fan of fudge? What's your favourite Christmas cookie?
