Easy Chocolate Freezer Fudge

55 cal, 6C/4F/1P/4S.

No-cook, no-bake, 3-ingredient freezer fudge: Pumpkin (or sweet potato), nut/seed butter, chocolate. Healthy! We all agree that chocolate is healthy right? That’s what I thought.

Being sick for 2 whole weeks has done me some good folks. I’ve learned a lot about photography. In particular, food photography. It turns out, youtube is chock-full of information and I have one bigger head now. Not kidding, I’ve been downloading all that info with a very large bandwidth.

And I APOLOGIZE. I have been bringing you very uninformed, misguided content guys. Yes, the recipes themselves and the nutrition info has been good, but the photos… left something to be desired to be extra super gentle on my ego. I just didn’t know a LOT. I still don’t! But I know some more. And I think these photos came out a tiny bit better.

But anyway, back to the recipe, which is the most important bit, right? These are the easiest, yummiest, chocolatey treat and the absolute favorite in our household lately. After every lunch, open the freezer, one piece for everyone! Enjoy with your tea/coffee or by itself.

Just don’t let these freezer fudge sit too long in room temperature because they will turn into chocolate mousse 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin or sweet potato puree (120 g)
  • 1/4 cup any nut/seed butter (64 g)
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips or 4 oz dark chocolate (112 g)

Makes 18 squares. Heat pumpkin in the microwave until just warm to the touch. Stir in chocolate and let it melt (heat some more if any stubborn pieces remain) and stir in nut butter. Line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment with overhangs off the sides, pour in the fudge, flatten and freeze a couple of hours. Remove from the freezer, slice into 18 (3×6 will do) and enjoy. Re-freeze any leftovers! Enjoy from the freezer!

Hope you love this recipe and tag me on instagram with your photos! ❤

Hi I'm Elif! I'm a mama, computer science PhD and Google engineer by day, food blogger by night. I love beautiful desserts that not only taste amazing, but also leave you feeling amazing. I use my math skills and interest in nutrition to carefully optimize my recipes to use simple, good-for-you ingredients and minimal amount of added sugar. I believe that healthy desserts can be simple. Recipes should not send you searching for rare ingredients, untested sweeteners or measuring ridiculous 1/2 tsp of butter. Here we use few ingredients, basic measuring cups, spoons, and simple fruit, veg, little sugar and syrup as sweeteners. Most recipes here use so little added sugar that they're good enough for toddlers. I also believe that you should be able to fit healthy sweets into your daily routine. No matter how much almond flour and coconut oil is in a healthy dessert recipe, there's no way I'm going to ingest a meal's worth of energy and a day's worth of total sugar from dessert alone. And that is the reason all my desserts have less than 200 cal per serving and are low-sugar. So now will you join us?
