Pumpkin Spice Fudge

So remember when I told you to stock up on Jello Pumpkin Spice Pudding Mix? This is why.

I used it to add pumpkin flavor to my fudge. It’s what I do.

This fudge was incredible. Yes. “WAS.”

Fudge this good doesn’t last long around here! Usually because it’s SOOOOO good, I send it out of the house before I eat it all.

That’s exactly what happened. Off it went to Michael’s work. I swear I’m not helping their wellness initiatives they may have put in place.

Although, it does help me to not eat it all. So there’s that.

    Your fudge is the best ever! I knew I bought an extra box of pumpkin pudding for a good reason. Although I’m hoping that you know how much I love you and your fudge and that some mysteriously comes along with you on Friday for lunch:-) I’m pretty sure that I am with you on the whole not helping the wellness of those around me too:-)

    Now I’m bummed that I used the box of pumpkin pudding mix that I had…I’d better go stock up, because this looks amazing. I love fudge (way too much, in fact).

    I love this whole idea, Aimee! Adding the pudding mix to the fudge is a great idea – i’ve seen it being added to cookies, but never to fudge! i haven’t tried pumpkin pudding – ever! what is wrong with me? I must buy some – even if I don’t make the pudding, I can throw it into FUDGE! What a great treat to bring to a halloween party!

  14. posted Oct 9, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    This sounds amazing. The only fudge I have actually pulled off is peanut butter- which I don’t particularly care for. These would be amazing little table favors for the kids table at Thanksgiving! I’m having my inlaws over in early November, maybe I can make this as a parting gift!!

    I made your recipe for Pumpkin Spice Fudge. I made my own caramel sauce with apple cider. It was nice to have a recipe that you can make ahead a few days. It was a big hit at our fund raiser for The Shepherd’s Table. Thank you

    Help my fudge didn’t set Overnight I followed the recipe exactly it’s 9am and my party is at 4pm how can I save this

    • posted Oct 12, 2013 at 9:39 am

      Hmmm, usually the number one reason for it not setting, is the mixture didn’t boil for the full amount of time. How firm is it? I’ve done this before with another flavor and stuck it in the freezer for an hour. Then removed it, rolled it in balls, froze again and dipped them in white chocolate. Truffles! Good luck!

        Thank you for your reply I tried to save it but there was no hope I think the problem was not getting the temp high enough …. This was my first attempt at any type of fudge….I ended up finding a “no bake fudge recipe” more like cheesecake and I added pumpkin spice mix to it and it was a great hit ….

        Every time I try it “Blank Page” comes up. Maybe it is me, but I can print elsewhere!
        Thanks for the response. I guess I will just jot the recipe down on paper ’cause I really like it.

        • posted Oct 24, 2013 at 9:51 pm

          That is really odd! You could try to copy/paste the recipe into a word document and print it that way! Sorry for the troubles…but it’s worth it :)

    did I do something wrong? my fudge had a sugar

  34. posted Oct 27, 2013 at 11:59 am

    sorry I did not mean to send that first massage……anyway my fudge came out tasting grainy like you could taste the sugar granules, I boiled it for the 5 minutes like it called for, is that how its supposed to be? if not for that I would have been quite happy with it, just a little to sweet for me I think I would use 1 cup sugar and not 1 and a 1/2. gave some to my husband and he really liked it, I didn’t say anything about it being grainy to him, so I’m not sure if that’s how it is or if I messed up.
