Sweet Potato Fudge

I’ve made this probably a billion times. It was my first really weird experimental paleo treat. It’s good at room temp, good chilled, good frozen. It’s just good. Period.

Sweet Potato Fudge

Sweet Potato Fudge

2 cups sweet potato puree
½ c. coconut oil, melted
¾ c. cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
Sea salt to taste

  1. Blend all ingredients in a bowl or food processor until smooth.
  2. Line an 8 x 8 dish with plastic wrap leaving a little extra on the sides to lift out the fudge with ease.
  3. Chill for an hour or so until firm, cut into desired pieces.


Add protein powder, nuts, cacao nibs, coconut shreds, cinnamon, turmeric, cayenne pepper, or maca powder into fudge.

Toast nuts or coconut and garnish.

Sprinkle coarse sea salt or cacao nibs on top before chilling.

    This looks like a vision of perfection and I can’t wait to eat it up:) Great post and I look forward to sharing more:)

  3. Wow that is one original recipe sister! I never would have thought that it would work as a fudge recipe. I have made coconut oil fudge before, but the amount of honey required to sweeten it made it a one time only recipe.

    So how sweet is it, on a scale of 1-10? I can’t wait to find out….

      It depends on how sensitive you are to sweetness. I don’t use added sugar very often so this tastes sweet enough for me. You could always add stevia or honey to taste. I’d say it’s a 4 or 5 out of 10. Like an 85% dark chocolate

      Unfortunately, the recipes are not formatted for print. I’ll be looking into that option in the next couple weeks.

  5. have you ever tried a coffee fudge? i use a similar sweet potato chocy fudge recipe for EVERYTHING (frosting, raw pie fillings ect ect) but today i fancy a mocha flavour…do you think i could just add ground instant coffee and emit some cacao powder?

    1. nikkiledford says:

      I have a recipe for a “coffee fudge” but it’s for mixing INTO coffee. There’s no actual coffee in it. I think it would be a very simple addition to put in some instant coffee! Sounds delicious… maybe i’ll try it out too!
