Sweet Potato Fudge 2.0

I’ve made this probably a billion times. It was my first really weird experimental paleo treat. It’s good at room temp, good chilled, good frozen. It’s just good. Period.

Sweet Potato Fudge

2 cups sweet potato puree
½ c. coconut oil, melted
¾ c. cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
Sea salt to taste

  1. Blend all ingredients in a bowl or food processor until smooth.

    puree!

  2. Line an 8 x 8 dish with parchment paper leaving a little extra on the sides to lift out the fudge with ease.
  3. Chill for an hour or so until firm, cut into desired pieces.

    Ready to be chilled

Options:

  • Add nuts, cacao nibs, coconut shreds into fudge.
  • Toast nuts or coconut and garnish.
  • Sprinkle coarse sea salt or cacao nibs on top before chilling.
  • Can also be made with same amount of black bean puree (NOT PALEO), but must add ½ – ¾ c. sweetener (honey, agave, maple syrup, etc.)

Delicious Fudge, getting up close and personal

    • It depends on how sensitive you are to sweetness. I don’t use added sugar very often so this tastes sweet enough for me. You could always add stevia or honey to taste. I’d say it’s a 4 or 5 out of 10. Like an 85% dark chocolate

  1. You are my hero. I can’t do cocoa powder right now but when I can this is the first thing I’m making. It will keep me motivated! I can’t do any sugar (not even fruit, and no not even berries) so this will be Amazing! I’m sure it will taste ridiculously sweet by the time I’m able to eat this.
