I don’t know about you, but I remember homemade fudge being a big thing when I was growing up. Perhaps it was a souther tradition, but it evolved to just be a staple. To this day I have never made homemade fudge, but the idea of creating a less rich and more nutrient dense variety seemed intriguing.
With fall still in full swing, the flavor of pumpkin came to mind!
Your typical fudge is packed with corn syrup and evaporated milk. This recipe is coconut butter based rather than coconut oil. As a recipe developer I have my kitchen packed to the max with ingredients, but I honestly rarely ever use coconut butter with my recipes. I find it’s typically cheaper than coconut oil, provides more texture, and a little bit goes a long way.
What’s fab about this recipe, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, has minimal ingredients, has good texture, packs a rich pumpkin flavor, will hold up being thawed and frozen over and over, can easily be made in bulk, perf for fall, and perf for fall entertaining!
