Pumpkin Spice Fudge Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Fudge Recipe

Here’s a great fudge recipe for the holiday season! This fudge tastes like caramel with a hint of pumpkin spice flavor – the texture comes out very smooth and creamy (not grainy at all) and the nuts add a great crunch.

My Notes: Buy a candy thermometer! Mine is from Walmart and was only about $4. I used a non-stick cookie sheet with a lip and buttered it so there was no sticking. I added the nuts to the top after pouring the mixture on the pan because I thought it looked prettier, but you could mix them in the pot at the end – it’s your preference.

Pumpkin Spice Fudge Recipe

Ingredients:
2 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar, packed
3/4 c. butter (no substitutions)
2/3 c. evaporated milk
1/2 c. pumpkin puree
1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 (12 oz.) pkg. white chocolate chips
1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow creme
1 c. chopped pecans or macadamia nuts (optional)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

How to make pumpkin fudge

Directions:

Butter a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a heavy saucepan: cook over medium heat until the sugars dissolve, then continue cooking until the mixture begins to boil, stirring constantly. Boil until the candy thermometer reaches the the soft-ball stage between 234 ~ 243 degrees. (This takes about 18 minutes).

Remove from heat, stir in the white chips until they are all melted and mixture is smooth. Add the remaining ingredients, mix well. Pour into prepared pan, and cool to room temperature. Cut into squares, store refrigerated in an air tight container. Makes approx. 60 pieces.

My kids don’t like nuts so I left them out of half the batch. I thought it would be cute to cut out pumpkin shapes with a small cookie cutter. They loved it!

And since I didn’t need a whole pan of fudge sitting in my kitchen, we shared with neighbors and my kid’s teachers. Great little gift idea!

    K Ladies .its the 1 who is not that gr8@ these new recipes..i hav a question… which butter kind do u use?… w salt?…w/o salt???Tia..cuz these look sooooooo yummy..

    • Heidi

      I always use non-salted butter unless a recipe specifically calls for salted butter. However, you can really use which ever one! My mom only cooks with salted butter, regardless of what she is cooking and you really can’t taste the difference.

      • Heidi

        non-salted…haha…I meant unsalted! 🙂

    • Debbie

      Absolutely use unsalted butter. If you feel like a Recipe is needing salt it’s easy to put in a pinch of it. Can’t take salt out 😊

    I once substituted the evaporated milk in pumpkin pie with coconut milk. I wonder if it would work in this recipe as well ?!?

    It would be really cute to draw jack-o-lantern faces on the cut outs with homemade frosting! Either chocolate or vanilla-yummy!
