Remember this post I posted a few weeks ago, when I attempted to make some fudge? I ended that post with a simple request: please share with me a delicious vegan fudge recipe. Well, my request was granted by the fabulous Brandi over at The Vegan 8.
I’ve been in love with Brandi’s blog for a while now, but never attempted any of her recipes despite how amazing they all look! Simple, but delicious recipes with 8 ingredients or less? Count me in. Brandi shared with me her 3 ingredient fudge recipe, and while this recipe looked perfect as it was, I decided it needed one more ingredient.
Vegan Coffee Fudge
- 1 heaping cup semisweet vegan chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup solidified coconut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1.5 tblsp fresh ground UN-brewed coffee beans*
- Sea salt to sprinkle on top
*Make sure your coffee is not only freshly ground, but also freshly purchased. Old coffee has minimal flavor.
- Line a baking pan with wax paper and set aside. The dimensions will depend on how thick/wide you want your fudge. I used an 8×6 pan, because that’s what I had.
- Using a double boiler melt your chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Then stir in the coconut butter, vanilla, and 1 tblsp ground coffee. Stir until melted and well combined.
- Pour mixture into your pan, and smooth out with a spatula. Mix your remaining ground coffee with some sea salt (about 1 tsp, depending on how salty you like things) and sprinkle generously on top of the fudge mixture.
- Place into your fridge to set for a couple hours. Or if you’re impatient like I am, place into the freezer for less wait time.
- When ready to consume, set out on your counter to soften for about 30 minutes.
These…are…unreal. SO epic and delicious. I am amazed. I ate enough coffee fudge to power me through a non stop spin class, and that class justified every bite I took. If you are looking for an easy vegan fudge, make these. You won’t be able to stop with just one.
Q: Coffee flavored treats yay or nay? Ohhh HELL yay!

Hmmm… I like my coffee in the cup. Not in my treats. But if these were in front of me, I would eat them. Because they look really delicious. PS next time you’re on the east coast, stop by for a nespresso with me and G Money. PLEASE! xoxoxo
DEAL. I would LOVE to share a nespresso with you and G! ❤ ❤
These look delicious! I’m almost drooling, haha. It’s funny because I don’t drink coffee, yet I love eating the coffee and chocolate combo 🙂
Please send immediately. For I am literally craving these like woah now!
Sarah @ Feeeding the Brain and Body
I love coffee so much but rarely use it in sweets…i don’t know why! These look driving and like the perfect consistency for fudge. Any recipe with so few ingredients is good in my books!
Amy @ A Desert Girl
Tasty! I love the combo of chocolate and coffee flavors.
The Vegan 8
Awww you are so sweet girl!! I’m so glad you loved them and WHOA, I love, love that you added coffee to them!!!! I actually don’t drink coffee but only add it to desserts, so this is PERFECT! I totally am adding it next time I make these, and leave it to you to add coffee, hahaha. Thanks so much for the awesome review and by the way, your pics look killer my friend!! Xoxo
Davida @The Healthy Maven
omg I need to make this!!!
yayyyy you should probably get a summer job on mackinac island and make vegan fudge – i can tell you right now there is NO SHOP that sells vegan and you’d be the first and only one! AND YOU WOULD GET TO LIVE ON A ISLAND AND RIDE HORSES TO WORK.
This is probably the best idea I have had since I decided to marry Mr. Speedy. Your welcome 🙂
Ps Sea Salt- yes. That stuff takes sweets to a whole new level of wonderful.
Brilliant idea my dear friend. I would fool EVERYONE and no one would know my fudge was vegan, unless someone came looking for vegan fudge. I would then tell them EAT MINE IT’S THE BEST!
janet @ the taste space
Nice! I love Brandi’s blog, too, but have yet to make anything yet. Sounds like I should get cracking. 🙂
oh gosh, these look delicious – kind of reminds me of the chocolate-covered coffee beans that i’m in love with, except moist. speaking of, isn’t moist an odd word? anyway- love how simple it is to make, and i’m heading over to check out brandi’s blog now… 🙂
Stoppp making me drool on my computer screen!!!! These look SO GOOD. My only concern is that I know I would want to eat these after dinner and then I wouldn’t be able to sleep because of the coffee and then I would probably eat more *facepalm* – or best idea ever? Not sure.
Come to Vancouver and make yummy things for me please 🙂
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
ErmaGHERDDDDD. GET IN MY MOUTH! I’ll trade you some fudgy bites for some coffee fudge… deal? Deal. These look amazing, and you KNOW I’m all over anything coffee.

Come make me food EVERY DAY.

If a food has a coffee-flavored option, I’m alllllllllll over it! When I found out Garden of Life made a vegan coffee protein powder, it instantly became my new favorite flavor. So this fudge has my name all over it!
di @ life of di.
I don’t know if I could make this and not eat the entire pan. I’m serious. Sounds soo good! I love any dessert that is coffee flavored 🙂 I applaud this recipe, my friend.
Rach @ This Italian Family
Mmm… I love the flavors of chocolate and coffee together! Definitely a winner! 🙂
Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl
Fudge is a weakness of mine so I’d swoon all over this! Looks delicious!
kathy @ vodka and soda
i love the taste of coffee…and to think that i tried to give it up!! i give myself a bitchslap for that dumb move. but to put this in fudge??!? GET IN MY BELLY!!!
I am virtually bitch slapping your for the thought of WANTING to try to give up coffee…you crazy hoe bag. Thank God you came to your senses…now I will share my fudge with you.

It may be vegan but this fudge looks as creamy and delicious as any other 😀

Matt @ Runner Savvy
Mmm this looks delicious!
Girllll… This looks SO good!! You know me and how I’m still new to the world to coffee, but ohmygoodnessgraciousmeohmy — I am in LOVE with my coffee cookie recipe!! It’s seriously the BEST cookie recipe I’ve ever had. Well, maybe tied with my dark chocolate one and blueberry oatmeal one. But still, it MIGHT edge those out by a teensy tiny bit. So basically… Coffee sweets = count me in!!

I I I I I I I I I I I I I
am so proud.
THERE IS NO SUGAR ASSED in this recipe.
GiGi Eats Celebrities
OMFG OMFG I AM CRYING FROM LAUGHTER RIGHT NOW – ASSED!!!! (ADDED – CLEARLY we know what’s on my brain!)
NO ASSED SUGAR NEEDED!!! HAHA you dirty girl.
I haven’t had fudge in years, and this is the exact kind of fudge I would want to end the No-Fudge era.
Yay! Love coffee! But I’m a light weight and can only have about one cup before my cheeks rose up and I talk like a maniac.
These look fantastic. I think I need to try this recipe since I just purchased vegan chocolate chips (thanks for introducing me). Let me see if I can return the favor. Have you heard of espresso salt? I just found out about it from another blog (look it up on Amazon). I’m not sure if it’s vegan, but how can you mess up coffee and salt? Anyway, if it is, wouldn’t that be PERFECT to add to these?
Is it totally wrong that I would love to feed you a cup and a half of coffee, just to see you talk like a maniac? I would have an extra cup myself just to ensure I get wild with you.
I’ve not heard of espresso salt, but my goodness it sounds amazing! I now want to make my own and sell it in mass quantities to ALL THE PEOPLE! Thank you for sharing!
COFFFEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. *happy dance*
An Unrefined Vegan
Oh yeah! Perfect combination of flavors. Brandi makes some of the most drool-worthy treats out there!
So not only is it vegan fudge, but its also coffee flavoured. You must be in fudge heaven.
Olive to Run
Oh HEEEEEEEEEEEEEELL Yeah is right! I’d be all over this!
I want to top this fudge with chobani’s coffee and dark chocolate chip flavor Greek yogurt 🙂 🙂
You just made me want to purchase coconut butter. These look and sound delicious. I love coffee in any form: straight up, in ice cream, in cake and now in fudge.
Change of Pace
OK- these look soooo good! You know I don’t like coffee, but oddly enough I love coffee flavoured sweets! Mud pie has always been a favourite. I think I’m adding this to my baking list 🙂
These look SO good. I’m salivating here on the east coast. I swear I’m like pavlovs dog (?) I see your new posts and I immediately get hungry.
Ohmygosh! Hands DOWN, YESSSSS for coffee flavored sweets! And I love you for posting this. If only The Hus hadn’t eaten the 4 bags of Trader Joe’s chocolate chips that I had hidden all over the house, I’d be making these RIGHT NOW!
GO BUY MORE CHOC CHIPS, you won’t be sorry.
Done and done. http://willrunforpizza.com/2014/04/16/a-need-for-chocolate/
Luv What You Do
Drool! This looks AWESOME! I love coffee flavored sweets, but don’t drink coffee. So, I never have it in the house to make recipes!

Oh, I love Brandi’s blog The Vegan 8, I found her a week ago when she popped by to say hi! I think between you and Brandi my daughter has the perfect place to discover vegan and healthy recipes. And coffee.. what would fudge be without coffee:) Btw, a quick question. My brother loves the Starbucks Columbian beans and I bought him two bags.. I’d like to gift them for Christmas, but will the beans lose their flavor by then, even with an unopened bag? I thought it would be a thrill to get them out of season:) xx
You are too kind my friend!! 🙂
As for your beans, I think they will be fine to keep until Christmas, they may loose a little bit of their kick, but nothing you would even notice! Just keep the bags air tight and don’t open. What a fun surprise that will be. The Colombia Nariño beans are wonderful!
Barbara Bamber | justasmidgen
Why. WHY do I come to your blog late at night when I ought not be thinking (dreaming) of delicious goodness?
AHH I wanna make these and they totally seem Meghan, oops, idiot proof!! YES TO ANYTHING WITH COFFEE is that a trick question?
