Pumpkin Spice Freezer Fudge

Did someone say pumpkin? That’s weird because not a single person has mentioned pumpkin in the last few weeks. I was starting to think it had become obscure. My Pinterest feed was void of it. Not a Starbucks in sight had a sign for a pumpkin spice latte. Pumpkin, what’s that?

I’m obviously kidding.

If your entire life hasn’t been taken up by at least 50% pumpkin/pumpkin spice chatter than you’re either a) living under a rock or b) living in a different hemisphere where you’re just preparing for summer.

For the rest of us though, pumpkin is old news. But it’s old news in an endearing way. That’s the thing about pumpkin, it’s overplayed but it’s good. You really can’t go wrong with a little pumpkin spice. And pumpkin spice freezer fudge? Bring it on!

What is Freezer Fudge?

Freezer fudge is pretty much as it sounds: fudge you eat straight from the freezer. Now unlike traditional fudge which is basically pure butter and sugar, freezer fudge has a much healthier base which in this case is almond butter and pumpkin.

Will freezer fudge last outside the freezer? Unfortunately no. You can let it sit out a bit but it will soften so don’t pack these as a lunch snack or to bring to work with you! On the bright side, it’s a super simple, one-bowl recipe and it pretty much lasts forever.

This pumpkin spice freezer fudge is no exception. Plus it’s a great use for leftover pumpkin puree if you have some!

1) Start by combining the maple syrup and room temp coconut oil

3) Cover a 9×9 inch baking pan (8 x 8 works too!) with parchment paper and spread mixture evenly to distribute

4) Freeze for at least one hour before cutting into 16 squares

6) Store in the freezer for as long as they’ll last! <–hint: it won’t be long

What to do with Leftover Pumpkin?

Likely if you’ve made this recipe you’re either using up a can of pumpkin or have some leftover. If you’ve got leftover pumpkin here are some recipes you can use to finish it up!

    Room temp coconut oil doesn’t blend with maple even after sitting at room temp for several hours. Maybe this cool South Dakota fall weather affects things.? I’m going to have to try some heat so I can get this in the freezer! So excited to try it! Thank you!

    HECK YES. I’m totally okay with pumpkin hype. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin bread pudding, pumpkin pie, pumpkin FUDGE!
    Also, kinda mad at myself for getting Bieber’s song, “Where Are You Now?” stuck in my head and not hating it.
