This easy vegan peppermint fudge makes for a delicious holiday dessert! It's made with just 8 ingredients and comes together in less than 10 minutes. So rich, chocolatey, festive and delicious!


  • 1 ¼ cup cacao butter, finely chopped
  • 1 cup agave nectar
  • 1 cup cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • ¼ cup cashew butter
  • ¼ cup nondairy creamer 
  • 1/2 tbsp peppermint extract (NOT peppermint oil*)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Crushed candy canes for topping


  1. Melt cacao butter in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently.
  2. Once melted, whisk in cashew butter. Remove from heat, then whisk in cacao powder and agave until smooth. Add creamer, peppermint extract and salt and whisk until completely smooth. 
  3. Pour into a parchment paper-lined 9 x 9 pan. Top with a thin layer of crushed candy canes.
  4. Cover and freeze for 3-4 hours or overnight. Slice and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. 


If you store in the freezer, let the fudge thaw at room temp for 10-15 minutes before serving.

*Peppermint oil is significantly more concentrated than peppermint extract. If it's the only thing you can find, just use a few drops.
