Pumpkin fudge

Kat Kilroy


This is my first time trying to make pumpkin fudge. Saw it at the beach and had to try a sample. We will see how this works. Basically took my chocolate fudge recipe, and tweeked it.

Also, if you do not have pumpkin pie spice, use equal parts, ground clove, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon (1/2 tsp each)

How to Make Pumpkin fudge


  1. Line 13 x 9-inch baking pan with foil.
  2. Mix sugar, brown sugar, evaporated milk, pumpkin, butter and spice in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue to boil, stirring constantly, for 10 to 12 minutes, until candy thermometer reaches 234° to 240º F (soft-ball stage). This is important!! Use a candy thermometer to reach the correct temperature or this will never set.
  3. Stir in white chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, nuts and vanilla extract. Stir constantly for 1 minute or until chips are melted.
  4. Pour into prepared pan. Let stand on wire rack for 2 hours or until completely cooled. Refrigerate tightly covered. Makes about 3 pounds.
