The Perfect Fall Dessert

Is it bold of me to declare that THIS fudge is not only the best fall fudge but the best all out dessert for the season? Maybe, but that’s how much I love this Apple Pie Fudge.

Why is this fudge perfection? The flavors in each piece of fudge are phenomenal. From the taste of the apples to the kick of the spices, eating this fudge tastes like being in autumn paradise.

A piece of gingersnap cookie adds some crunch and even more spice to each square of velvety fudge. It truly does taste like apple pie!

I also love Apple Pie Fudge because it’s an easy, no-bake dessert option that travels well and can feed a crowd. Cut into pieces as big or small as you like, you can add this to a fall bake sale or pass it out at potluck.

Or, go ahead and keep it all to yourself. No one can blame you–it’s just that good!

Ingredient Notes

You’ll need canned apple pie filling for this fudge. It only calls for half a cup, so you can reserve the leftover filling for making Apple Shortbread Bars or another apple treat!

Before adding the pie filling to the recipe, try to divide as many of the apple slices from the jellied part of the filling as possible. It doesn’t need to be fully separated but you want a higher proportion of apples compared to the liquid.

For the white chocolate, I find white chocolate chips melt the easiest and taste great. You can also use white chocolate bars broken into small pieces.

Step by Step Instructions

STEP 1. Boil butter, cream and spices

Add white chocolate and apple pie filling to the bowl of a stand mixer and set aside. Then heat sugar, butter, salt, cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice over medium high heat in a large saucepan.

Bring to a rolling boil and stir continuously for 4 minutes. Remove from heat.

STEP 2. Mix with apple pie filling

Quickly pour the butter mixture into the mixing bowl with the chocolate and apples. Beat on medium speed with the whisk attachment until white chocolate is silky smooth. This takes about 2 minutes.

STEP 3. Chill and serve

Pour the fudge into a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until the fudge is set.

To serve: Remove parchment paper from pan and place on cutting board. Cut fudge into bite sized squares and top each piece with a piece of the gingersnap cookies.

Tips and Tricks

  • An 8 x 8 square baking dish works perfectly for this recipe.
  • An electric hand mixer works just as well as the stand mixer. You can make this fudge without an electric mixer too, but it will take much longer to melt the chocolate and whisk everything together.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. (It never makes it that long in our house because I keep coming back to the fridge for “just one more bite.”)
  • Apple pie fudge freezes well too. Cut into pieces before freezing but do not add the gingersnap. Let thaw in the fridge overnight and top each piece with the gingersnap before serving.

Comments & Reviews

  1. Hi and thanks for this recipe! It’s very unusual and I can’t wait to “test drive” it…I posted it on my Pintrest page and I noticed that it was listed as a vegetarian food…I was wondering how that could be as there’s dairy products in the ingredients. Thanks for all your lovely posts on your seasonal treats!!

  2. Hi! This sounds really good! I have a few questions though… for 3 cups white chocolate chips, do you know about how many 12oz bags I would need to buy to get 3 cups? Also for the apple pie filling, doesn’t that have large apple slices in it? Did you just leave the large pieces in the fudge or did you cut it up? Thanks!

  3. I’ve made this fudge many times and it’s always everyone’s favorite…
    I make a graham cracker crust for the bottom and it really works well…
    1/2 stick butter 1 cup crushed graham crackers and 1/2 cup sugar…melt butter and mix thoroughly and line bottom of 8×8 pan and press it down til firm and bake at 350 for 7 mins….let cool then pour apple pie fudge on top and once cool, enjoy!!!
    Thank you for this amazing apple pie fudge recipe!!!!!!!
