Fudge making is a family tradition in my household, and my latest creation is THE BEST. This Vegan Gingerbread Fudge is literally the best fudge that I have ever made. It tastes like winter entirely. This fudge is super simple and easy to make and the flavour has that classic gingerbread flavour that I associate with the holidays. We made a few fudge recipes this year, one of them being the 3-Ingredient Peppermint Fudge in out latest ebook A Simple Christmas, but honestly this one has gone down the best! Not only is it super delicious, but this gingerbread fudge makes for the perfect handmade gift (scroll to the bottom for wrapping instructions)!
- 225g caster sugar
- 220g soft light brown sugar
- 60g vegan cooking butter
- 65ml vegan double cream
- 4-5 tbsp black treacle
- ¼ tsp cream of tartar
- 3-4 tbsp ground ginger
- Line a brownie tin with parchment paper and set aside for later.
- In a medium-sized saucepan, add all of the ingredients. Using a rubber spatula, stir all of the ingredients together over a medium-low heat, until the butter has melted, the sugar has dissolved, and everything is well combined.
- Once so, stop stirring and bring the mixture to a boil. Place a cooking thermometer in the pan and heat the mixture until the thermometer reads 240˚F (116˚C/soft ball).
- Once up to temperature, remove the pan from the heat and leave it to cool for 5 minutes, until the mixture has stopped bubbling. After this time, grab a wooden spoon and stir the mixture constantly at a moderate speed for 10-15 minutes, until the mixture is very thick (but still pourable).
- Pour the mixture into the prepared brownie tin, level off the top with a spatula, and leave it to cool until the fudge has completely set. It should be chewy and soft, not hard.
- Once set, cut into 1-inch squares and enjoy!
This fudge can be kept in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place. Best consumed within 2 weeks.
How to gift wrap:
This Vegan Gingerbread Fudge is the perfect gift for your loved ones this holiday season, as a sweet and spicy little way to end the day. To wrap, I recommend stacking several pieces of fudge on top of each other in the centre of a large square of parchment paper. Fold the parchment paper over the top of the fudge stack to create a little bundle. Tie with ribbons or string, add a name tag, and voila! These fudge may go sticky in their wrapping if left in a warm place, so I also advise wrapping it on the day you plan on gifting it. These little parcels of fudge work great in gift hampers or as stocking fillers. Enjoy! And there you have it. The perfect little gift for your loved ones.
