Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes

Cool: 3 hours

Ingredients:

Fudge

One 15-oz. can pure pumpkin

1 cup powdered peanut butter

2/3 cup creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. natural no-calorie sweetener that measures like sugar

1/2 cup chopped freeze-dried strawberries

 

Topping

3/4 cup frozen strawberries, thawed, not drained

2 1/4 tsp. cornstarch

1 1/2 tbsp. natural no-calorie sweetener that measures like sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8” X 8” baking pan with parchment paper.

Place all fudge ingredients except freeze-dried strawberries in a food processor. Puree until completely smooth and uniform.

Fold in freeze-dried strawberries. Spread mixture into the baking pan, and smooth out the top.

Bake until a toothpick (or knife) inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, 25 - 30 minutes.

Let cool completely, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, make the topping. Clean food processor, and add topping ingredients. Puree until mostly smooth. Transfer to a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, or until hot and thickened.

Spread topping over fudge. Cover and refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 2 hours.

HG Tip: If making the fudge in advance, refrigerate the topping separately.
