Paleo Pumpkin Pepita Fudge


tropicaltraditions.com had their 32 oz Coconut Cream Concentrate buy one, get one free not too long ago, so today, being the first day of fall break, 2013, I prepped a jar and came up with a couple of paleo fudge recipes.
Here's the first one. I know Ger and Cassie will love this when they get back from the Voice of America Games. (they're doing so well!)

I put the following ingredients in a saucepan:(since I'm going to heat it a little on the stove to mix it completely)

1 cup coconut cream concentrate
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup honey (1/4 might be enough for you....)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of sea salt

 I heated this on LOW and stirred with with a wooden spoon.  When it was completely mixed, and very thick, I added:

1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds - I love the ones from nuts.com)

I rubbed coconut oil on a little pan. It was like a bread pan but more shallow. (use what you have)
I pressed the fudge mixture into the pan and placed it in the freezer for 30 minutes before I cut it into pieces and enjoyed a piece!
