Pumpkin Fudge

Updated on July 28, 2014

Best Pumpkin Fudge Recipe

Pumpkin fudge is one of those treats that is just so perfect for the Fall season. Believe me, when I say that I love fudge anytime of year, however, Fall is the season for pumpkin fudge, and made just how I like it.

For my taste, fudge should be slightly crunchy and sugary on the outside and deliciously smooth on the inside. When you add pumpkin to that mix, the flavors will meld into the best tasting fudge that can be enjoyed from fall into winter.

Enjoy this recipe and share a batch or two of fudge with someone special!

Pumpkin Fudge Has A Season!

My favorite thing about Pumpkin Fudge is that even though it's seasonal, it's a VERY long season. I start making Pumpkin Fudge as soon as I feel that first hint of coolness in the air which is usually around late September. The fudge-making fun continues right through Halloween and past Thanksgiving, and rolling into the holidays.

Pumpkin Fudge wrapped in a nice box with a pretty ribbon makes a great gift anytime during this season. It's an especially thoughtful host/hostess gift, but I know you can think of so many more occasions to share this delicious treat!

Thanks for visiting!

      This is exciting! I just bought a pumpkin simply to make puree and seeds out of. Now I can make fudge!
