Folks: I've figured it out. The secret is using brown rice syrup, it is very thick at room temperature so it gets gooey when refrigerated and makes the perfect sweetener for easy vegan fudge. The ingredients, amounts and instructions here are like my chocolate recipes, but the brown rice syrup makes the final product chewy - fudge! - instead of totally solid.
2/3 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup coconut oil
2/3 cup brown rice syrup
To make the fudge: melt the coconut oil then stir all the ingredients together until you have a smooth, thick chocolate batter. If it's too sweet, add more coconut oil or cacao powder. If it's not sweet enough, add more brown syrup. Add some salt and/or vanilla if you like. Spread evenly into a lined pan and leave in the fridge until solid, it should take an hour or less. Enjoy!
