Pumpkin Fudge is a classic holiday recipe that tastes delicious and is perfect for the season! This pumpkin fudge is a wonderful gift for family and friends.
Okay guys it’s officially that time of year…pumpkin recipes! I purposely waited to post anymore pumpkin recipes until after Halloween. I’m one of those people who like to enjoy the current holiday season. I hate that I walked into Michael’s the other day and they had Christmas music playing. REALLY?! We haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving and here you are playing Christmas music.
I just think that’s ridiculous. For the remainder of November, you’ll see some pumpkin recipes here and there, some easy dinner recipes, and much more. But I promise that I will hold off on the Christmas recipes until the week after Thanksgiving. Let’s give thanks and enjoy this season before moving onto the next. Deal?
This Pumpkin Fudge recipe is a huge hit at my house during the holidays! I used to make fudge all the time with my mom when I was younger. Every holiday season we would make chocolate fudge with and without walnuts. But we never made any other flavors. I’m not sure why, but I’m glad that I’ve been exploring different flavors.
Pumpkin Fudge needs to be on your dessert table Thanksgiving day! Try this recipe. I promise you’ll love it just as much as me.
