Ingredients

Cashew butter– We use creamy cashew butter for this no-bake fudge recipe because it’s naturally nutty in flavor and easy to form into a base. The natural flavors of cashew butter mimic regular cookie dough and provide the best texture.
Coconut oil– Just a little bit of coconut oil is used to melt into the cashew butter and sweetener. We suggest measuring the coconut oil when it is in its solid state form – so before melting.
Honey– Natural honey provides a yummy layer of sweetness that goes a long way. Of course, for vegan cookie dough fudge, please use maple syrup! Maple syrup is a perfect alternative to honey.
Vanilla– What would this recipe be without the vanilla? We use rich pure vanilla extract for this recipe. Be sure to use the real stuff and not the imitation vanilla.
Powdered erythritol– This provides a bonus layer of sweetness and is naturally sugar-free. If you’re not worried about a sugar-free diet, then you can use regular powdered sugar.
Coconut flour– Nutty coconut flour is used because it is gluten-free and paleo-friendly. We haven’t tried this recipe with all-purpose flour so we do not know how that would go.
Salt– Kosher sea salt balances all the flavors out and ties things together with its natural savoriness.
Chocolate chips– Last but not least: chocolate chips! Be sure to use dairy-free or dark chocolate chips if you are vegan. If you are not vegan, then you can use milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet types.

First, place the cashew butter, coconut oil, and honey, (or maple syrup for vegans,) into a microwave-safe bowl and cook on high for 15-20 seconds. Stir with a spoon until smooth.

Next, add the vanilla extract, powdered erythritol, coconut flour, and salt. Stir until a thick dough forms. Let the mixture cool for 5 minutes.

After that, fold in chocolate chips. Transfer the fudge to a pan or container (8″x4″) lined with parchment paper. You can also just grease your pan.

Next, chill the cookie dough fudge in the freezer for 20 minutes before cutting it into 12 squares and serving.

Store the fudge in an airtight container in the freezer. If completely frozen, let it sit at room temperature for five minutes prior to serving.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is cookie dough fudge?

Cookie dough fudge is a no-bake dessert recipe that has all the delicious flavors of cookie dough and the texture of sweet fudge. It’s the perfect option for cookie dough lovers who want to try something new.

What is the secret to smooth fudge that’s not gritty?

The secret to smooth fudge is allowing it to completely cool before serving. You want to make sure the fudge cools in the freezer so everything forms together.

What is the difference between cookie dough and edible cookie dough?

Regular cookie dough is not edible because it contains untreated flour and raw eggs. Edible cookie dough is created with edible ingredients that won’t cause you any harm.

Can I put the fudge in the fridge to set?

It’s easiest to get your fudge to set by placing it in the fridge or freezer. I placed mine in the freezer for about 20 minutes. When stored in an airtight container you can place the fudge and it will last for about 2-3 weeks.

Why did my fudge come out too soft?

If your fudge came out too soft, then it could mean that it did not have enough time to set in the freezer. Continue to allow the fudge to set in the freezer until almost solid.
