This fun novelty recipe uses pinto beans to replace some of the butter typically found in fudge. Walnuts give the soft creamy squares a nice crunch. -Pattie Ann Forssberg of Logan, Kansas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 26, 2012

By using canola oil instead of butter, this is perfect for a friend who is lactose-intolerant. The first time I made this, the bits of skin from mashed beans was unpleasant, so I've used the blender for the beans since then for a smoother consistency.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 3, 2008

This is one of the best recipes I've ever made. Friends and family couldn't believe it was made with beans. I made mine in my mixer. It was a lot easier
