A rich and decadent Dark Chocolate Sweet Potato Fudge – Yep! Sweet potato is the secret hero of this no-bake fudge recipe.
As easy to make and just as elegant as our White Chocolate Fudge, this fudge has a quiet ingredient that adds to the sweetness, but most of all, sweet potato is the reason for the gorgeous creamy and soft texture of this chocolate fudge. And just like our Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles, you wouldn’t know it was there unless you are told.

Like avocado, sweet potatoes make an excellent ingredient for desserts for enhancing texture. Sweet potato also adds proteins and nutrients instead of fats and cholesterol if you use heavy cream-based ingredients instead. A healthier alternative for kids’ picnics and parties, sweet potatoes are also low carb which makes it a keto-friendly fudge.
Recipe Variations & Tips
This fudge recipe gives an optional addition of peanut butter. This is purely a taste thing adding a lovely nutty flavour. It will not change the recipe or texture of the fudge if you do or don’t add it.
For this fudge recipe, I have used 50% chocolate. Different types of chocolate will impart very different flavours to your baking. If you want to use darker chocolate – 75% cacao chocolate or darker, you may want to adjust the sweetener to taste, especially for those with a sweeter palate. If you prefer that slight bitterness from darker chocolate, leave the sweetness as is.
Sweet potato fudge will keep in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for seven days.
