Have you heard the Canadian stereotypes? The ones that go…
Okay, peeps. Comin’ atcha with another seasonal recipe!
Not feelin’ the pumpkin pie situation this Thanksgiving? Not to worry. This Pumpkin-Orange Freezer Fudge is super simple to prepare, creamy in texture as well as sweet and refreshing in flavour. It offers a nice spin on the typical festive desserts that show up this time of year.
What’s more? It stores in the freezer so that you can pull out a piece or two on an as-need basis, keeping the temptation to indulge in, say, several pieces of pie, to a minimum. Hey, we’re human with the biological imperative to want more and more of the sweet things once our palates have a taste of them. But I’ve found helpful strategies like keeping treats in the freezer avert that common allurement.
So, go on, indulge in a piece or two of this delish Pumpkin-Orange Freezer Fudge.
