Description

Spicy, sweet, crunchy, delicious and a little out of the ordinary. Makes for a fabulous after dinner treat around the holidays.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup White Chocolate Chips
  • ¼ cups Butter
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 Oz)
  • ¾ cups Mashed Sweet Potato
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • 8 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 cups Toasted Chopped Pecans

Preparation

Line an 8×8 glass dish with waxed paper and set aside, if desired.

In a large bowl, melt white chocolate, butter and sweetened condensed milk together until smooth in consistency. (I do this in 15 second increments in the microwave.) Once melted, pour into the bowl of a stand mixer and stir in sweet potato, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and half of the powdered sugar. Scrape the sides and mix again. With the machine on, add in remaining powdered sugar by the 1/2 cup until all is incorporated. Fudge should look very thick but still sticky. Pour in nuts and stir them in by hand. Pour into prepared pan and smooth the top.

Refrigerate until fudge has hardened, about 2 hours. Remove fudge from refrigerator and using the waxed paper edges, remove entire block of fudge. Using a sharp knife, cut into small squares. Serve.

Recipe Notes:
– Feel free to add in any other spices you’d like. Nutmeg and/or cloves would be a nice addition.
-I like a thick fudge, but if you would prefer a thinner piece, pour fudge into a 9×13 pan.

I just made this and hope it turns out. It poured like cake batter. i have it in the freezer for overnight.

I tried substituting pureed pumpkin for the sweet potato but don’t think that’s the reason why it never set up. It was a thick paste, more of a sauce.

Everyone wondered about the lack of cooking time (melting the butter and white chocolate chips really doesn’t count as cooking) and getting to some type of soft ball stage.

The batter tasted really good, but it never did set up properly for me, and remained really runny.

I made this for Thanksgiving. It was so good! I just don’t know why it didn’t get firm. Even though it was soft everyone still ate it with a spoon. lol

Oh, this is so good! I’ve already had someone ask me for the recipe. I sprinkled in some nutmeg-not sure how much, just kept tasting until I got it right.

I just made this I hope it turns out it poured like cake batter. I’ve never had success making fudge ever. I used canned pureed sweet potato. The taste reminded me of butterscotch when I sampled some in the bowl. I’m keeping it in the freezer overnight.

Delicious! And much smoother than I expected it to be! The pecans are perfect. Also, I used a hand mixer when I was adding the powder sugar and it worked out fine.
