Chocolate Coconut Fudge

This incredible three-ingredient chocolate coconut fudge will please if you are a huge fan of coconut rough.

Chocolate Coconut Fudge

When you take a bite of this fudge, you are greeted with the rich flavors of chocolate and coconut. The fudge is soft and melts in your mouth. I can never resist having seconds or thirds of this delicious snack.

For something simpler, you can always make our plain chocolate fudge. It is very similar to this recipe but does not use coconut and instead uses milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate.

A single batch of this fudge will make enough to feed roughly six people. However, it heavily depends on whether you are making it as platter food or as part of a dessert. I get roughly twenty snack-sized slices without needing to adjust the recipe.

The leftover fudge is best kept in the fridge and will last for three to four weeks. Keeping the fudge in the fridge will cause it to harden slightly. You can always remove the fudge early to allow it to soften.

Tweaking the Chocolate Fudge

For some nuttier flavors, you can toast the coconut. I recommend toasting it over the stove as I find it super easy. Simply pan fry the coconut without any oil until it starts to go brown. You can also toast the coconut using a microwave or the oven.

I recommend dark chocolate for this fudge, but milk chocolate will work great as well. For the best of both worlds, you can do a mixture of half milk chocolate and half dark chocolate. Feel free to play around a little with quantities.

Coconut Rough Inspired Fudge

For a bit of extra flavor, you can try adding some essences into the chocolate mixture. For example, a little bit of vanilla essence will add a bit more vanilla flavor to the chocolate. A good combination is chocolate, coconut, and mint.

Recipe Tips

  • You can swap the dark chocolate for milk chocolate.
  • Make sure you use sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk. Evaporated milk will not work, and your fudge will likely not set correctly.
  • You can cook this fudge in the microwave rather than on the stove. Simply cook it in 1-minute intervals to prevent it from burning. Another option is to use a slow cooker for cooking the fudge.
