Dessert: Peanut Butter Fudge

During my 30 Day Vegan Challenge, I wanted to make some desserts. The timing happened to be when the kids returned to school and I like to make desserts for the kids lunches. I googled "vegan desserts" and found this one at It required items I mostly already had in the house. (We had run out of peanut butter, which is a staple, so I ran quick to the store to rectify the lack of PB in the house.) This is a quick and easy recipe, and oh-so-yummy!

1 cup (vegan) margarine
3.5 cups powdered sugar
1 cup cocoa
1 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky, depending on how you wish your fudge to come out)
1 tsp vanilla


  1. Over medium-low heat, melt margarine in a saucepan, then stir in the sugar.
  2. Turn heat to low, add cocoa and combine.
  3. Add peanut butter and vanilla, combine well. You can either fully combine or leave some peanut butter streaks if you like the look and appreciate having "bites" of peanut butter.
  4. Spread into a baking dish to whatever thickness you prefer for your fudge. This is quite rich, so we went with a fairly thin (< 1/2") layer, but you could make it thicker (up to 1"). Refrigerate until firm.
