Low FODMAP Chocolate fudge (lactose-free, gluten-free, vegan)
Fudge is one of my favourite things in the world. In the Netherlands, we have a brand called Johnny Doodle and they have the most delicious salted caramel fudge. I could eat the entire bag at once, it is so good! I used to eat this fudge now and then with a lactase pill, but I feel like my body does better without cow milk products. So I am trying to experiment more with dairy-free products and I only use lactase pills when I really have to. Recently I learned about the existence of condensed coconut milk. A perfect replacement for condensed coconut milk from cow milk. With this condensed coconut milk, I made my very first low FODMAP chocolate fudge. Gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. And mannn it is so good!
I added some gluten-free kruidnoten to this recipe. These small cookies are a Dutch tradition and they are eaten a lot during this time of the year. You can find a recipe for them here (if you want to use the kruidnoten in the fudge, just follow the recipe for making kruidnoten and don’t add the chocolate truffle layer). The fudge is very tasty without kruidnoten too, so you can also make a plain chocolate fudge or add some low FODMAP cookie chunks.
If you follow the low FODMAP diet, note that condensed coconut milk has not been tested yet. Canned coconut milk is low FODMAP up to 80 g per serving. We don’t know yet if condensed coconut milk is low FODMAP, but if it is it is almost certain that the serving size will be limited. My advice is to try this recipe only after you have finished the elimination phase and to eat a maximum of two pieces at a time. It is important that you test your own tolerance level.

This low FODMAP chocolate fudge is exactly how fudge should be. Sink-your-teeth-in fudgy. Irresistible! Also gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan.
- 320 ml condensed coconut milk
- 200 g dark chocolate, chopped into pieces
- Optional: kruidnoten (see explanation above)
- An 8x4 inch (20x10 cm) baking tin
- Put the condensed coconut milk and the chocolate together in a pan and heat on low heat. Stir continuously.
- Chop the kruidnoten into smaller pieces and stir them into the mixture.
- Cover the baking tin with baking parchment and pour the fudge mixture into the tin. I used a brownie tin and I filled half of the tin with aluminium foil. Like this, I could cover the other half of the tin with baking parchment and put the mixture in there. I didn’t have a smaller baking tin and the entire brownie tin was too big, so that was my solution to make the tin smaller. If you have a smaller baking tin, you can use that too.
- Put the fudge in the fridge to set for at least 3 hours.
- Cut the fudge into cubes and store it in the fridge.
