Vegan MoFo Day 21: Vegan Pumpkin Fudge – Take 1!

 

 

I love fudge! I especially love pumpkin fudge and I first discovered this yummy treat when my mom and I were at a Craft Fair. We still go to this same Craft Fair every year, but I no longer purchase the pumpkin fudge because it is not vegan. I loved that fudge so much that I decided I would get to work veganizing it so I can enjoy this yummy pumpkin treat during this time of year also.

I don’t have a recipe for it today because something went wrong with the recipe. For some reason the fudge set in the middle of the pan just fine, but some of the mixture on the sides of the pan did not. The candy came out as a cross between a fudge and caramel, so I just plan on melting down what I have left over and making caramel apples with my daughter. The fudge tasted delicious and some of it did have that fudgy texture, but I want to figure out what caused some of the mixture not to set. I did discover later that my candy themometer was broken, so I am on my way this weekend to buy another one and retest the recipe.

There are a couple of different things I’m going to try also to see if that makes the recipe better and then I will post it and a better picture.

On another note…

 

I also wanted to share that Florence over at Anchors and Feathers nominated me for a Liebester Blog award which means favorite, dearest or beloved in German. I feel so honored that she would even consider my blog as one of her favorites and I am very grateful to her for that.

The idea behind the award is to give recognition to blogs that have less than 200 followers. Here is what you do when your blog is nominated for an award:

1.  Show your thanks to those who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2.  Link to 5 of your top picks and let them know they’ve been nominated by leaving a comment on their blog.
3.  Post the award on your blog.
4.  Enjoy the love and support of some wonderful people on the interweb!
 
Here are my picks:
1. Ashlae at Oh, Ladycakes
3. Sarah at Winged Snail 
5. Cindy and Mike at Star City Vegan

  1. That fudge looks good, it’s something I haven’t since I was a little kid. We used to buy it at markets too but it’s not vegan.

    • Thank you Mandee! I was disappointed that it didn’t completely turn out the way I wanted it to, but hopefully when I make it again in the next couple of days the outcome will be much better :)

  2. That pumpkin fudge looks deeelicious. And thank you for the award – I’m honored!
