White Chocolate Coconut Fudge

Fudge is a great dessert that is always a crowd pleaser. If you’re looking for a white chocolate fudge recipe, you’ve got to try this one! It comes together quickly and has a touch of coconut that adds a sweet nutty flavor.
This decadent white chocolate coconut fudge is easy to make and only requires three ingredients.  Its just like regular fudge - super rich, ubet-decadent - but it’s secretly healthy and guilt-free!  Yup, that means no butter, no white sugar and no sweetened condensed milk…  just pure, fudgy coconutty goodness.
The big secret here is that you will be using homemade condensed milk, free of the LOADS of sugar in store bought stuff.
The facts are…manufacturers take out about 60% of the water from the milk to “condense” it down. After they “condense” the milk, they add about 40% sugar to fill the void from the water.
I’m sure you’re asking yourself why the manufacturers do this. Well, the added sugar means the shelf life is longer, plus transporting the milk is easier due to not having to store it in cooler temperatures.
Its always about the convenience to them, rather than peoples health.
But when you take the time and effort to make your own condensed milk, especially if its from coconut cream to make this delightful fudge, you get all the real, natural coconut flavor - no artificial food flavorings here!  Each little cube is like a piece of heaven.
This fudge is super soft, yet holds its shape long enough for you to pop them in your mouth…  where they then melt in your mouth.
The recipe for the homemade condensed milk is below in notes. It really very easy to do and you can keep some in your fridge so its ready to add a dollop on EVERYTHING for a super healthy treat.
It will be something you can enjoy regularly as part of a healthy eating plan. Its high in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), a form of beneficial fat that can increase energy levels and enhance brain function and many other health benefits.
MCTs also help people lose weight by making them feel fuller longer and encouraging fat burning, they also have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that can boost the immune system and promote healthy skin.
This Chocolate Coconut Fudge has all the creamy texture and decadent flavor you crave but is made with real-food ingredients...
Fully customizable too – you can add your own extras like nuts, dried fruit, seeds or other flavours to the 3-ingredient base fudge recipe. Put your own stamp on it and make it your own!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup condensed milk  - store bought or if sugar free preferred reduce water content down by simmering a 13.5 oz can coconut cream or milk until its around 1 cup of volume. Recipe below in notes
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bar
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut, plus extra for topping

Instructions

  • Line an 8 x 8” baking pan or dish with parchment paper on the bottom and sides leaving some overhanging to act as a handle to get the bars out easier for cutting.
    In a microwave-safe bowl, combine your chocolate chips with the condensed milk. Microwave in 30-second spurts at 50% power stirring in between bursts until the chocolate begins to melt.
    Or use double boiler method - (pot of boiling water with a bowl resting on top) melt the condensed milk and chocolate chips together.
    Stir frequently, until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is completely smooth, about 10 minutes.
    Add the desiccated coconut and stir to combine.
    Pour the fudge mixture into the lined baking pan and smooth out with a spatula or back of a spoon. Top with more desiccated coconut.
    Place in the freezer to set completely for 1-2 hours or until the fudge is solid, then cut into 12-16 bars or squares depending on your preferred size.
    To store: Fudge should always be stored in the refrigerator, covered. The fudge will keep well for up to 4 weeks.
    To freeze: Place leftover fudge in a zip-lock bag and store it in the freezer for up to 6 months.
