I was so keen on making this pumpkin fudge that I even made my own cashew nut butter to use in it!
And it was ultimately delicious!
This pumpkin fudge is super easy, just 5-ingredients and makes 16 large squares.
It’s also a freezer fudge, as in, you keep it in the freezer!
I debated using more coconut oil so that maybe it wouldn’t need to stay in the freezer, but decided against it.
I thought more coconut oil would be overkill, and it might STILL need to be kept in the freezer anyway. It’s a very fatty dessert already (in a good way!) since cashew butter is the base ingredient.
And to that you add pumpkin puree, coconut oil, golden or maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice! And then you can optionally top the fudge with crushed pecans and more pumpkin pie spice (recommended!)
Keeping it in the freezer isn’t an issue though because it doesn’t freeze solid. It is perfectly bite-able right out the freezer.
It needs to set in the freezer and stay there because it simply doesn’t set properly in the fridge. So freezer fudge it is.
If you’re transporting it somewhere, take it straight from the freezer into a cooler bag, and the moment you arrive at your destination put it straight into the freezer there, and it will be perfect.
You will love this vegan pumpkin fudge. It has a very rich and creamy taste and texture and the pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin puree flavor it beautifully. More reasons to love this pumpkin fudge are that it is:
- Super Easy
- Fall colors
- Topped with crushed pecans
- Pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavored!
So keep them in the freezer (I’m sure you already got that part!) and enjoy them straight out the freezer! And since they’re in the freezer, they will last for ages! But not really, cos you’re going to eat them much too quickly for that.
