Disneyland's Pumpkin Fudge

5 stars from 1 rating of Disneyland's Pumpkin Fudge

The best part about Fall, at least in my opinion, is everything that is pumpkin and good in the world! When you think of Autumn, Halloween, and Thanksgiving I'm pretty sure one of the first things that comes to your mind has the word pumpkin in it. I love making pumpkin goodies throughout the Fall. Now onto the fudge. I LOVE the pumpkin fudge that is made at Disneyland during the Halloween Time season! If you have never had it before I highly recommend trying it out. It is the perfect compliment to a nice cool Autumn day. The one downside about this season in the park that I have come to realize is that I overwhelm myself with pumpkin while I am there. I use to walk down Main Street with a Pumpkin Spice Latte, a pumpkin muffin, and a tray of the pumpkin fudge and then feel so gross a few hours later because of it. Now I know that I have to limit myself and plan wisely so I can still enjoy it all. I usually start with the latte and unfortunately cannot eat the muffins anymore due to the gluten but I always end up taking home some of the fudge. It is a good snack while waiting for the tram and a really good pick-me-up if you get stuck in traffic on the 57! If you have had the fudge and love it as much as I do, I'm sure you will understand my excitement with this recipe. It is super easy to make and it will sure to please anyone you choose to share a piece with. This year I am planning on making some for my family Halloween brunch as a treat for them to take home. My family all love going to Disneyland so I know that it will be a nice surprise for them!

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 2 hours 20 min
Ready in: 2 hours 35 min
Yields: Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 2/3 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 lb marshmallows or marshmallow creme
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup

*Marshmallow Measurement*

The marshmallows measures out to about half a bag of the normal sized marshmallows.

Instructions

  1. Line a 12x8 baking dish with foil, letting it hang over the edges.
  2. In a large saucepan, whisk together the sugars, butter, evaporated milk, pumpkin, and spices.

3. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.

4. Continue to boil mixture for 10-12 minutes or until the mixture reaches "soft ball phase". This is where if you were to drop some of the mixture into a bowl of cold water it forms a ball when it cools and is removed from the water.

5. Stir in the white chocolate chips first and then the marshmallow creme and maple syrup.


6. Stir until melted and then immediately pour into the prepared pan.

7. Let the mixture cool on a wire rack for 2 hours or until completely cooled.

8. To cut, lift the foil from the ends of the dish. Cut the fudge into 1" squares. Store in the fridge or freezer.

Just a few tips!

  • When you combine the pumpkin, sugars, butter, evaporated milk, and spices it will not mix together right away. You have to kind of stir it for a little bit before it melts together.
  • When your mixture comes to a boil and you come to the point where you have to constantly stir it; go at a slow steady pace. Otherwise your arm is going to get very tired very quickly. About halfway through the mixture begins to stiffen so it is slightly harder to stir. Just go slow and make sure it doesn't burn!
  • Make sure that the mixture reaches softball stage, otherwise the fudge will not set right.
  • The fudge might not cool completely in two hours. If need be you can stick the pan in the fridge to make sure it is completely cooled. After the two hours, I left my pan in the fridge for an hour.

      I'm a pumpkin person, too! Don't like eating it by itself, but mixed in with stuff? Love it. Didn't even know there was pumpkin fudge. I probably won't make it myself, but might ask my pal who's heading to Disney in a few weeks to get some for me. :) Happy Fall!
