Trim Healthy Mama Pumpkin Fudge
1 stick butter
1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
3 ounces cream cheese, full fat or 1/3 fat both work well
3-4 tablespoons xylitol (or sweetener of your choice to taste)
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
chopped pecans (optional)
Melt butter over medium heat, stirring often until melted. Add pureed pumpkin. Whisk until smooth and add cream cheese and sweetener. Give it a little taste just to be sure it is sweetened to your preference. Continue stirring until smooth, then add vanilla and additional spices.
Sprinkle pecans, if desired and place in freezer until firm (about 20-30 minutes- original recipe states 24 hours is best).
When set, slice and store in a container.
This is considered a “S” dessert or snack.
Jessica made my fudge. It is really good! It just seemed like such a fall indulgence!!
