This Homemade Pumpkin Fudge will make for a super tasty sweet treat during the fall and holiday season. You will find it smooth and creamy with amazing pumpkin spice flavors.
During the holidays, we are all about the fudge around our house. Family and friends immediately head to the kitchen to see if there is any fudge to be had. Most of our guests are usually looking for my hubby’s Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Fudge or even our Traditional Chocolate Fudge. This fall, they are going to find a fun fall fudge that we made.
This stuff is definitely for the pumpkin lovers. We loaded the Pumpkin Fudge with some pure pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. YUMMY!
Making fudge can be a challenge for some. Getting the fudge to the perfect temperature is the key. It always was a challenge for me so I leave it up to the hubby. He always pulls off some amazing fudge recipes.
This Pumpkin Fudge recipe turned out perfect. He made it once last fall and we devoured it before I had any family members try it. I am glad he whipped up this batch this past weekend. I know they will be surprised to find a new flavored fudge since they are used to the usuals he makes.
To make this Pumpkin Fudge, you will need pure pumpkin, sugar, corn syrup, pumpkin pie spice(store bought or Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice), evaporated milk, and butter. This recipe was made very similar to a traditional fudge recipe. Be sure to get your fudge to softball stage and all will be good.
3 cup Sugar
1/2 can Evaporated Milk (6 oz)
1/3 cup Corn Syrup
1 stick Butter
i/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (store bought or Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice)
Use butter and grease inside of 8×8″ baking dish or line with parchment paper.
Mix pumpkin, spice, sugar, corn syrup and evaporated milk in large pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Mixture will begin boiling. If it boils too close to top, reduce heat slightly.
Continue cooking until mixture reaches soft ball stage (235-245 degrees). You can test for this by seeing the syrup forms a ball while in the cold water, but flattens once removed from the water.
When it reaches this stage, remove from heat.
Add remainder of butter and stir until mixture start to lose its’ sheen.
Then pour into prepared baking dish and allow to cool.
