My Paleo Coconut Oil Fudge has been super popular and I totally understand why. It's easy, quick, and delicious! This fudge is based off that recipe with the pumpkin in place of the cacao powder and the addition of pumpkin pie spice. I also decided to use cashew butter after testing a couple batches. It is more mild in flavor than almond butter and smoother. I did make it with almond butter, too and it was very good, just not as creamy. Feel free to use whatever nut butter you like of course- it's a very flexible recipe.
It is super easy to make! Everything is mixed in one pan, heated and whisked until smooth. That's it! No special techniques or tools needed. Of course you'll need to plan for the time it needs in the fridge to chill, but that's simple.
This fudge is super creamy and melts in your mouth. It is on the softer side so it's best eaten straight from the fridge. The pumpkin flavor is perfect and spiced just right. I use a pre-made pumpkin pie spice because it's easy and because I bought a pound of it on Amazon and need to use it every opportunity I get 🙂 You can use a homemade mixture of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves if you prefer.
This is such a great fall treat. You will love how simple, quick, and delicious it is! Sweet, creamy fudge that has all the flavors of pumpkin pie, but made easier and healthier. Here are some more pumpkin recipes to try:
