Coconut Butter Chocolate Fudge / Pudding (dairy-, refined sugar-free)

Coconut butter, coconut concentrate and creamed coconut are all the same thing, that is, it is made from ground up coconut flesh. Some will be expensive to buy, but others can be inexpensive; some are packaged in jars, tubs and even cardboard boxes. The stuff I buy is “Let’s Do… Organic, Creamed Coconut” and comes in boxes of ~225 g (1/2 lb, almost 1 cup) for $2-3 ($1.89 during the holidays).

One of the great things about this recipe is that you can eat as a pudding (similar to a rich and dense version of Angel Delight, for the Brits out there) before it sets.

Both the fudge and pudding versions are extremely rich, satisfying and incredibly chocolaty. I chose to add walnuts to the fudge, and they were gone before we knew it!

    • Hi vegan muffin woman, my “coconut butter” comes from PCC. I say “coconut butter” because I actually buy creamed coconut, which is available in a block in the grocery aisle (far cheaper than “real” coconut butter). It’s the same ingredients, but far cheaper :).
