Fudge

This is my version of blender freezer “fudge”. I put fudge in quotes because technically fudge is a candy that is made by cooking your ingredients over the stove to the right temperature.

My favorite way to make this “fudge” is with pumpkin seed butter. It is also fantastic with peanut butter or almond butter.

I give a recipe for a big batch (or holiday/party batch), a medium batch and a small batch. The large batch yields two 8×8 pans. The medium batch yields one 8×8 pan. I recommend lining the pan with plastic for easy removal. This fudge can be poured into silicone molds.  Shallow silicone molds work well.

The amount of sweetness in this recipe is for my taste preferences. Add more or less maple syrup and taste until you get it just right for you!!

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do.
