Avocado Fudge

What you need: 

1/2 cup vegan butter
1 avocado
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar (or replacement: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=6327)
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped, optional

What you do: 

1. In a medium sized saucepan, melt the margarine over low heat. Once butter is melted, puree with avocado in food processor or blender until perfectly smooth. Be sure there are no chunks of avocado left.
2. Return mixture to saucepan over very low heat and add the rest of the ingredients, except the walnuts, adding the powdered sugar a portion at a time.
3. Once all the sugar has been added, the mixture should be thick. Add walnuts if desired, and transfer to a loaf pan. Refrigerate until firm. Now, be patient! If you don't let it firm up, you won't be able to slice it up into squares.
You can dazzle it up by sprinkling powdered sugar and nuts on top if you wish. Really its endless what you can do! Have fun!'

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Hello, I have just tried this recipe, but the fudge doesn't seem to be setting, it has a more toffee like consistency..... how long should i be cooking it on the stove for, no time has been indicated? i added the sugar slowly, stired until dissolved and then put it over into the setting pan, should i have cooked it for longer??  Still tastes yum though! Im going to cook it again, if that fails, i will eat it as a mousse :D

Oh my! I don't really know what to say about this fudge. It is better than the non-vegan fudge I use to make before my vegan change. My non-veg classmates in my masters class were extremely impressed and I have been flooded with recipe requests!! This is definitely the best vegan dessert I have made!!! Mmmm, now I want to make some...and I have an avocado in the fridge!

This is a delicious masterpiece all you need are extra ripe avocados and you will have no problem! In fact, I used a potato masher and a whisk, then when I put it back on the stovetop I used a spatula to mix in my sifted cocoa and powder sugar! Love it! :)>>>

Ok, silly question, but can I substitute avocado for *all* the fat in this recipe so as to avoid margarine?  Has anyone tried doing it?  Seems that would be the healthiest way to make fudge.

Liked the Fudge ;)b took it to a 4th of July evening  picnic on-board the U.S.S. Midway in the San Diego Harbor...shared it with our friends.  Everyone liked it and no one guessed the avocado, although they were intrigued when they found out.  Great place to watch 6 different firework displays around San Diego.

Excellent!  Made this last night.  Can't taste the avocado at all.  Very creamy and yummy.   I only had about half the amount of powdered sugar called for, but it still turned out great.  Not too sweet.  A great way to use up avos that are overripe!

Excellent! I added a couple of small spoonfuls of peanut butter at the very end of the cooking process and swirled it all up. Love the fudge, though I wish it was a bit more "tough." I let it sit in the fridge for over a day and it still took some work getting it out due to softness.

Will experiment more this weekend!

Pretzels?  Peanut butter?  Genius!
Although I do think peanut butter would affect the texture, i.e., adding to the softness, especially regular peanut butter.. usually has shortening, and that would make the fudge even creamier.

This recipe sounds greaat.  Anyone try cutting back on the margerine?  It seems alot with the avocado which would provide a good amount of fat...
