If there’s one thing I like better than dessert, it’s MINI sized dessert! It’s cuter, and I can eat more. Ehm, right? That’s what that means? 😉
Well, You might THINK this is pumpkin pie, but it’s actually teeny tiny itty bitty slices of pumpkin pie FUDGE! And it has the tiniest dollop of meringue whipped cream on top because OMG CAN YOU EVEN HANDLE IT!? And it’s delicious. AND we worked with our pals at Truvia® Sweetener to make this happen, so it has 75% fewer calories from sugar and you can go to TOWN! Phew, is that enough reasons to make these tiny treats for your Friendsgiving celebrations? Thought so!
For the fudge:
15 mini graham cracker crusts
1 egg white, lightly beaten
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 (7 oz) jar marshmallow fluff
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups Truvia® Baking Blend*
1 and 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
2/3 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground clove
Orange food color
Mini Meringues for “Whipped Cream” (We bought ours locally, but you can find similar here or make your own!)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Brush each mini graham cracker crust very well with the egg white, making sure to fully coat the edges. Place the mini crusts on a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, till the crusts are lightly browned. Set aside.
3. Place the white chocolate chips, marshmallow fluff, and vanilla in a large heat proof bowl. Set aside.
4. In a large pot, combine the Truvia® Baking Blend, butter, evaporated milk, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and cloves. Turn heat to medium and cook until a candy thermometer reaches 240 degrees F.
5. Pour hot mixture over the white chocolate chip mixture. Stir till smooth. Add in orange food coloring at this point to reach desired color (optional). Fill each crust with the fudge mixture. Let cool. Refrigerate at least 1 hour till the fudge is set.
6. With a sharp knife, quarter each mini pie and use a bit of melted white chocolate to attach a meringue “whipped cream” to the top of each slice.
*Did you know with their baking blend, you only need to use HALF as much Truvia® Baking Blend as you would sugar for your recipes!? And your taste buds wouldn’t even know the difference! SUCKERS! See, more excuses for treats you guys, you’re welcome. =)
