Limited Ingridient Fudge?

NateStraus Jun 14, 2011 07:32 PM

I have been craving fudge, and have never had a chance to make it, so I figured now might as well be the time. Only problem is my mom doesn't eat butter, and my brother is a diabetic. I'm hoping to find a fudge recipe using stevia and canola or coconut oil.

Actually any fat/sweetener is fine, just as long as it's not sugar or butter. Those were just the first ones that came to mind. Thanks for the help!

    is she anti-butter, or anti-dairy in general? if just anti-butter, would you consider using cream cheese or sweetened condensed milk as an ingredient? if no dairy, i'd recommend using Earth Balance. i have a couple of recipes for you, depending upon which route you can take!

      maybe try one of these?



      if they're not sweet enough for you just add a few drops of stevia.

      you could also make vegan truffles, which usually call for coconut oil or hemp butter.

        Here's a link to a few recipes for Diabetic's Fudge from cooks.com. Most have sugar and/or butter but a couple don't. Hope it's helpful. :)
