By now you know how much I love pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup, pumpkin desserts, I'll take them all! Pumpkin fudge is perhaps the ultimate in pumpkin, however. This recipe uses white chocolate, marshmallow cream, lots of real butter, and walnuts. With an ingredient list like that, you know it is going to be delicious!

Now that the days are cooler, get in the kitchen and whip up a batch of this fudge!

Pumpkin Fudge with Walnuts

  • 3/4 C melted butter
  • 2/3 C evaporated milk
  • 3 C sugar
  • 1/2 C canned pumpkin

  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

How to Make Pumpkin Fudge with Walnuts

  1. Line a 9" baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium pot, stir together the first 6 ingredients and melt together over medium high heat. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, about 12 minutes, until a candy thermometer reads 234 degrees.
  3. Remove from heat and quickly stir in the remaining 4 ingredients.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan, sprinkle the top with remaining nuts, and allow to cool for two hours.
  5. This recipe comes from one of my favorite food blogs, Framed.
