Oh fudge!

ok, who does not love fudge??  Really?  The creamy, smooth, rich but not too sweet, melts in your mouth goodness. I found a great recipes after spending many long hours on Pinterest and had to try it out. Pinterest - every time I get on that site I know the rest of my day is over.  From one pin to another travelling from blog to blog I find amazing things but its so hard to stop!!

So the recipe is a rich chocolate GF fudge.  I adjusted it a little by adding coconut cream instead of milk and found the texture to be more smooth like a formed mouse. I tested this for a girlfriends birthday a few months ago and she's been asking for them ever since.

Here is the recipe - Gluten Free on a Shoestring created the fabulous recipe

I also found a pumpkin fudge recipe online that I had to try.  So last night while procrastinating and not studying for my final exam or writing my paper, I made more fudge. Why not, right??!! :D

Pumpkin freezer fudge is made of pumpkin, peanut butter and yummy spices.  Here is the link on Pinterest.  It looks like it was a recipe in a magazine so I am going to put the recipe below also.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree (i used the whole can)
  • 1/2 cup of almond butter (I used peanut butter because I cannot eat almonds)
  • 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup of maple syrup
  • 1 tbs of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbs of nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp of cloves
  • pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.  Pour mixture into a pan. I poured mine into a mini muffin pan so they came out perfectly formed. Place in freezer for 30 minutes or longer. Cut into desired pieces and serve straight from freezer.  This fudge will melt quickly so don't let it thaw more then a minute or two before serving to your guests.
