Vegan Peanut Butter Walnut Fudge

This vegan peanut butter fudge is made by using a few easy substitutes. It is easy to make and tastes very much like my normal peanut butter fudge recipe.

We just had meatless Monday at our house and a Thai peanut stir fry was the star attraction. All of us are in the mood for something sweet to end the meal.

Fortunately for us all, I just happened to make my vegan fudge this week, too!

My daughter is a vegan and she can’t eat my normal version, but this vegan adaptation is perfectly suited to a vegan diet.

Making fudge is something that I love to do during the holidays.  It is pretty easy to do, too, if you follow my fudge making tips.

Making Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge

There is no reason for Vegans to miss out on sweet treats.   With the right substitutes, many normal recipes can be transformed into new favorites.

This recipe for peanut butter walnut fudge uses Earth Balance Margarine instead of butter.  It is rich and delicious and will tempt even those who normally don’t care for vegan food.

The recipe is very simple.  It uses just four ingredients:  peanut butter, vegan Earth Balance buttery sticks, confectioner’s sugar, and chopped walnuts.

ingredientsMeasure your ingredients and have them ready before you start. The recipe comes together very quickly at the end and  you will want your sugar and walnuts already to go.

measured ingredientsPrepare your pan first.  Line a 9 x 9 inch pan with aluminum foil, bringing the foil up the sides of the pan.
