Countdown to Halloween: Pumpkin Fudge

28 Oct

I want to start off by apologizing.  It seems between Robin’s Pumpkin Crack and the recipe I’m about to give you, that we might be trying to kill you.  I assure you, that is not my intention.  However, pumpkin fudge!!

Pumpkin Fudge


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 7 ounces marshmallow creme
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Line a 9×9 inch pan with aluminum foil, and set aside.
  2. In a 3 quart saucepan, heat milk and sugar over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
  3. Mix in pumpkin puree and cinnamon; bring back to a boil. Stir in marshmallow creme and butter. Bring to a rolling boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 18 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, and add white chocolate chips and vanilla. Stir until creamy and all chips are melted. Pour into prepared pan. Cool, remove from pan, and cut into squares. Store in a cool, dry place.
Here’s some of my tips.
  • This boils VERY HOT!  Please be careful.  Especially when it’s at a rolling boil, if it spits on you, you’re burned.  Believe me, I am and it didn’t even take a full second of contact.
  • Use white chocolate chips with cocoa butter.  It will melt better.  If not, you will be stirring forever and probably still have chucks.
  • If it’s for a party, look for some cute Halloween or fall shaped cookie cutters.  They’ll be on sale now, or very soon
  • If you do not have a good Will Save, lock this up!  It’s tasty!

    Can you leave the white chocolate out of it?

      Honestly, I’m not sure what leaving out the white chocolate would do. I could only find one recipe online without chocolate chips, however it looked like most of the ingredients they used made up a chocolate chip anyway. You might be able to add more butter/sugar/marshmallow fluff to compensate. Are you trying to omit it for dietary restrictions? If you try it without, let us know how it comes out!
