This stuff is crazy good and won't last long if you make it, I promise! 

Recipe:

Peanut Butter Fudge

Ingredients:

-2 cups sugar

-2 TB light corn syrup

-2/3 cup vanilla soymilk

-1 TB margarine (I use Earth Balance whipped)

-1 tsp. vanilla extract

-1/2 cup natural peanut butter (salt free)

-chocolate chips (optional)

Also needed:  large saucepan, candy thermometer, 8″ baking dish

1.  In the large saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and soymilk.  Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring constantly until the mixture reaches 234 degrees F.  Remove pan from heat.  Please be extremely careful, hot sugar mixtures are like napalm.

2.  Add the margarine and mix until well combined.  Let the mixture cool until its warm but not insanely hot.  Stir it once and while during the cooling process to break up any sugar crystals.

3.  Add in the vanilla and peanut butter.  Beat with a hand beater until the fudge is matte and airy.  Press the fudge into the baking dish and sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Cool well before serving.

4.  Enjoy!

Mmm!

Do you have to buy vegan chocolate chips?  I didn't know there were ones without dairy...

I use Tropical Source because they're vegan and they aren't made on the same equipment as dairy chocolate (like Ghiradelli is), it's an issue for me because I'm also severely lactose intollerant.  Enjoy Life also makes vegan and allergy friendly chocolate chips.

Wow that looks so good! 

What is the texture like?  When I first saw the picture I thought they looked rice-crispy-treat-esque.

I made these today. I think I messed up and cooked the sugar mix too long. It got all fluffy and that light brown color, but as soon as it seemed to reach 234, it turned dark brown when I took it off the heat and shrunk down to almost nothing. Even though I stirred it as it cooled, it still got grainy, so when I added the PB is just got really crumbly. Pressed it into the pan and put it in the fridge. It's a bit too grainy for my liking, and this not as appealing dark brown color, rather then that pretty light color you got.

I guess being a fudge-maker is out for me.

The texture is really creamy, not grainy or rice-crispyish like the picture might suggest.  To the person whose fudge didn't come out, it sounds like you went over temperature and it got to more of a hard candy temp.

I tried to make this yesterday afternoon for my vegan friend who's birthday it is tomorrow.  What can I say? Massive fail  Angry.  Props to Kala for clearly being a fab sweetie maker!  Mine just hasn't set properly.  Maybe I'll have another go tonight.  Was fun making it nonetheless!

Any ideas on what to do with not-quite-set-yet-yummy-tasting fudge?  Seriously...of I'll just eat all of it with a spoon!

Thanks guys, and thanks Kala for sharing!  Kiss
