Pumpkin Fudge Candy Recipes

Updated on September 11, 2014

Pumpkin Fudge Candy

For our second week of the Summer Session on RocketMoms, we needed to write an article about Fall. Following is my choice of subject.

This is the first that I have heard of pumpkin fudge. I was trying to find different things to do with the pumpkins after Halloween. I saw a comment where someone said they loved pumpkin fudge and I had to find some recipes for you. Remember when I wrote my first fudge lens called Who Doesn't Love Fudge? This is a wonderful addition to that lens. Hope to find some other unique fudge recipes that I can link to these also.

NOTE: I haven't been able to find a Pumpkin Fudge photo so will be using pumpkin or fudge related photos

Spicy Almond Pumpkin Fudge - Another Marshmallow Recipe

Photo Credit: Monkey Simon, Creative Commons Commercial

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 can (5 ounce size) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cups butterscotch chips
  • 1 jar (7 oz size) marshmallow creme
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. 1. Butter a 9X13 Cake Pan
  2. 2. Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees. Place almonds on a cookie sheet and put in oven to toast. Make very sure that you do no burn them. Stir them often. Once toasted, remove from oven and set aside.
  3. 3. In a medium sized saucepan, add next five ingredients. Bring these ingredients to a boil, stirring constantly to keep from sticking to the pan. Continue to boil and stir until mixture reaches the soft ball stage (approx 234 degrees) or about 10 minutes. Use a candy thermometer to verify temperature or get a glass of ice cold water and drop a little mixture into the water. If it is soft ball, it will form a little ball.
  4. 4. Remove from heat and add butterscotch chips and melt. Once melted, add marshmallow, vanilla and toasted almonds. Mix everything together very well.
  5. 5. Pour mixture into the 9X13 pan you prepared in the beginning. Set aside and let cool.
  6. 6. Cut into 2 inch squares and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
