- Line a small baking dish with wax paper, covering the sides of the inside of the dish so you can easily lift out the finished fudge.
- In a saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer for 3-5 minutes - avoid scorching.
- Add 2 Tablespoons coconut oil to the saucepan and stir until it melts. Add the chocolate chips. When they begin melting, use a whisk to stir the mixture until it has no lumps.
- Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour into the baking pan, spreading it evenly across the bottom of the pan with the back of a spoon. Freeze until firm - about an hour.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix together the almond butter, 1/4 cup coconut oil, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt. Stir until smooth.
- Remove the chocolate layer from the freezer and confirm that's it's firm. Pour the pumpkin mixture on top of the chocolate layer, spreading evenly with the back of a spoon. Arrange the pecans on top of the pumpkin layer, being careful not to press them into the mixture. Place the finished fudge into the freezer until solid, 2-3 hours.
- Lift the fudge out of the pan, remove the wax paper, and cut into small pieces. Serve immediately.
