3 Ingredient Chocolate Peppermint Fudge - Easy Vegan Holiday Recipe

I used toΒ love fudge as a child. However, it’s (1) not very vegan-friendly, and (2) traditional recipes just seem way too sweet for me now.

Fear not, my fudge-loving friends! This recipe requires onlyΒ 3 simple and healthyΒ ingredients and has the perfect amount of sweetness to it.

All you’re going to need is some Vegan Chocolate, a Nut or Seed Butter, and some Peppermint Extract! I added a crushed Candy Cane on top of my fudge for some extra pizzaz, but I’ll leave the topping choices up to you.

I’ve been loving this creamy, chocolatey fudge as both a small afternoon pick-me-up and an evening treat. It’s cool and refreshing, and I love how it doesn’t give me a tummy ache after I eat it as well πŸ™‚

A Few Final Thoughts:
  • This recipe is SO versatile! Feel free to use any nut or seed butter of your choosing, and go crazy on the toppings. Cacao nibs, Hemp Seeds, or even Goji Berries would all be delicious!
  • You can store this fudge in either the fridge or the freezer. I prefer to keep mine in the fridge as it is already very soft and creamy, but if you want a former bite, keep it in the latter.
  • To keep this recipe refined sugar free you can use this chocolate made with Coconut Sugar, or this brand sweetened with Stevia.

3 Ingredient Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

This Chocolate Peppermint Fudge is as easy as 1,2,3…literally! Mix your ingredients, let it set, and then you’re ready to enjoy.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 45 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 12 squares 1x


  • 1/2 cup Vegan Chocolate Chips (or chopped Chocolate)
  • 1/2 cup Nut or Seed Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Peppermint Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)
  • Optional Toppings: Crushed Candy Cane, Cacao Nibs, Hemp Seeds, etc!


  1. Using a double boiler or microwave method*, melt your chocolate until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add in the Nut or Seed Butter and flavor extracts and stir well.
  3. Transfer to a bread loaf pan or small dish lined with parchment paper, and spread evenly. Top with any toppings, if desired.
  4. Let sit in the freezer for 45 minutes, until firm. Remove from the pan, chop as desired, and store in the freezer or fridge for up to 10 days.


I used these Vegan chocolate chips to make this recipe, but any will do.Β 

I prefer the taste of this fudge best when made with Almond Butter, Cashew Butter, or Sunflower Butter, if you are nut-free.

* To melt chocolate in the microwave, simply add your chips to a microwave-safe bowl, then microwave at 30 seconds intervals, stirring in between. Your chocolate will be ready when there are aΒ few small chunks left – just stir it a bit more, and the heat from the rest of the chocolate will melt them as well!

  1. This sounds sooo good! I want to make this for friends and family as a little christmas gift, but where I live, it’s nearly impossible to find peppermint extract (even online). Would peppermint oil also work or is the aroma not as strong?

    1. I haven’t tried peppermint oil myself so I can’t say for sure, but a quick search online says to use the oil at a ratio of 1 to 4 (1 part oil is equivalent of 4 parts extract), as the oil is much more potent.

    So yummy! I’m bringing it to my work’s holiday potluck tonight…if there is any left!

    I used a whole jar of Whole Food brand almond butter and 5 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (since I’m making it for a bunch of people), I still only used about a teaspoon of each extract (maybe a drop over) and crushed candy canes on top. YUMMY!!!

  5. Does the taste of the nut or seed butter come through, or does the peppermint overpower it? Either way, this looks delectable.

    1. If the nut/seed butter is strong, you would still be able to taste it. For that reason I would recommend using Almond or Cashew Butter for this recipe πŸ™‚

    I was legitimately looking for a fudge recipe last night and they all use coconut oil, then I did my daily check of your website and it’s like you read my mind! Thanks, Caitlin! I’m definitely going to make these tonight!
