  • Summary

    Fudge just got a whole lot more interesting. Not only is the base of this fudge made from a healthy vegetable (instead of oil or butter), it is accented with hints of chipotle chile and cinnamon to give it a beautiful, delicate warmth. Not too spicy, just right.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup mashed cooked sweet potato (128 g)
    • Two 3.5 oz 70% dark chocolate bars, finely chopped (7 oz total, 200 g)
    • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, room temperature (60 mL)
    • 2 tablespoons creamy plant milk, room temperature, I used "lite" canned coconut milk (30 mL)
    • heaping 1/8 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper spice (adjust to taste)
    • 1/4 teaspoon strong quality cinnamon, I used Saigon cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • Optional: red pepper flakes
    • Note: It's important that your liquids are at room temperature so the chocolate stays smooth while mixing, otherwise cold liquids will cause it to start to harden too quickly. Make sure to use the correct amount of chocolate so the end result texture is accurate.
