On Sunday we featured a Pumpkin Bread recipe from Holistic Mom’s Network‘s new cookbook, Many Paths, One Journey to Health, due out next month.

As promised, today’s recipe is Vegan Fudge Truffles.

So easy to make, so eco-fabulous (a vegan diet is easier on the planet) and so absolutely delish.


6 tsp. vegan margarine 3 1/2 c. plus 3 T. confectioner’s sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract 1/2 c. vegan cocoa powder

1/4 c. vanilla soy milk 1 c. chopped nuts (optional)

Lightly grease an 8 x 8-inch pan. Place the margarine, vanilla, and soy milk in a

heatproof mixing bowl, or the upper part of a double boiler. Sift the sugar and 1/2 cup

cocoa and add to the mixture. Place the bowl or boiler over simmering water and stir

until smooth. Add nuts if desired. Pour the mixture quickly into the prepared pan. Let

chill for at least 1 hour, or until set. Scoop out fudge with melon ball scoop and roll

into balls. Roll fudge balls in cocoa powder and set on wax paper and chill in air tight container. For best results chill overnight as the fudge will be firmer and more like

regular fudge.
