Pumpkin Pie Fudge – Ingredients
Fine sea salt
Flaky sea salt
Pumpkin Pie Fudge – How To Make
First, prepare a standard size loaf pan (8.5 x 4.5) by lining it with parchment paper. I don’t recommend foil for this part.
Next, in a medium sized pot, heat the cashew butter and coconut oil over medium heat to medium low heat. Continue to cook it and stir it together as the mixture melts. Once it’s well combined and super smooth and creamy, you’ll know it’s done!
Remove the cashew butter and coconut oil mixture from the heat. Stir in the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and fine sea salt.
Stir until well combined and smooth.
Transfer the mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkle flaky sea salt over the top.
Lastly, place in the freezer for about 2 hours or until completely frozen.
Pumpkin Pie Fudge – Tips
Once the paleo pumpkin fudge is frozen, leave it on the counter for just a few minutes to thaw a bit before slicing. For extra precision, run your knife under hot water, then wipe dry before cutting the pumpkin fudge.
Store the sliced fudge pieces in an airtight container in the freezer.
For a little something extra, melt some chocolate chips in a double boiler and drizzle the chocolate over the fudge before placing it into the freezer.
Time to eat! Enjoy!
