Pumpkin Fudge

Makes 30 servings Prep Time: 15 minutes Chill Time: at least 2 hours Total time: 2 hours 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cashew butter
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Combine cashew butter and coconut oil in a medium sauce pan and whisk to combine.
  2. Heat over low heat, whisking until smooth and well combined - about 5 minutes.
  3. Add pumpkin puree, syrup, and pumpkin spice and mix well.
  4. Spread into a parchment-lined 8x8 inch baking pan.
  5. Refrigerate, covered loosely with plastic wrap, for at least 2 hours, or until fudge is very firm.
  6. Cut into small squares.
  7. If you like, melt the chocolate chips over low heat in a small saucepan, and drizzle over the set fudge, then refrigerate for another 30 minutes or until chocolate is set.

Recipe Notes:

Peanut, almond, and sunflower butters also work well in this recipe, if cashew is not your thing!
