This post originally published on November 27, 2008. Wait. Have I really been blogging that long?! Anyway, I’ve updated the photos, the words, everything. Enjoy! 

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Mine was fabulous. Didn’t leave my house at all.

Okay, well, I ended up at In-n-Out once but besides that, I only left for dog walks.

I spent Saturday binging on crime documentaries. You guys. Have you seen There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane? It’s a must watch but be warned: I sobbed through the last 20 minutes.

In between depressing documentaries, I made lots of fudge. I have a bunch of delicious recipes coming up for the holidays but I wanted to share this Pumpkin Pie Fudge now since we’re kind of in peak pumpkin season.

I’ve seriously been making this recipe for almost 10 years. I always make it for Thanksgiving and then usually again at Christmas.

It’s not overwhelmingly pumpkin so even the pumpkin haters in my life enjoy it. Plus, it’s a change from the usual mountains of chocolate and peanut butter fudge that I do every year. And it’s perfect in little tins as teacher gifts or whatever.

How To Make Pumpkin Pie Fudge

Okay, the bad news is that this fudge requires a candy thermometer. But I promise it’s so worth it. 

The first step is to boil sugar, butter, evaporated milk, pumpkin puree, corn syrup, and pumpkin pie spice until it reaches 234F, the soft ball stage of candy making. This part takes awhile but you have to get it to 234F in order to get that fudgy texture. 

Once it reaches that point, remove it from the heat quickly so it doesn’t keep heating and stir in white chocolate, marshmallow cream, walnuts, and vanilla. 

Then you just pour the fudge into an aluminum-foil lined an (to make removed it from the pan easier) and wait for it to set up. The recipe says 2 hours minimum but I usually let is set overnight just to be safe.
