White Chocolate Pumpkin Fudge

I came across a Pumpkin Fudge recipe on Pinterest. The Pumpkin Fudge Recipe from Recipe Girl jumped out at me and I knew I had to make it asap!

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love to make pumpkin flavored anything. Pumpkin muffins, cupcakes, amazing pumpkin pie. homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte and now pumpkin fudge.

As I am sure you know by now Pinterest is great for finding new recipes. I find recipes that I want to make and save them to one of my boards so I can make them one day. Some I make right away like this one.

I made a slight change to the original recipe. I left some of the white chocolate chips whole. That’s why I am calling my batch White Chocolate Pumpkin Fudge.

I have a funny story about fudge making from before I started food blogging.

I don’t know…… about 6 or 7 years ago I decided I wanted to make some fudge for Christmas. I do a lot of baking at Christmas time. 

Some years I make food gifts for friends and neighbors. I always make cookies and honestly most people don’t bake and make homemade things like I do so my friends and family really appreciate homemade food items at the holidays. 

Recently I have been hosting a cookie exchange. My all time favorite Christmas cookie are these Cherry Chocolate Kisses that I make every year.

Back to the funny fudge story->->

I found a fudge recipe in one of my cook books or magazine and made the first batch of fudge. Tasted it and had my daughter Megan taste it. The fudge was good but it just was not the texture I had remembered from when I was young and my mother had made some fudge around the holidays.

So I found another fudge recipe and made it. Same thing happened. The fudge was good but not what I remembered.

So to make a long story short I made about 6 different batches of fudge and never found the “right” recipe. 

But Megan and I sampled every one of those batches of fudge. 

Finally I had to stop making fudge. I was sick of tasting and not finding the “right” recipe and Megan and I gained about 5 pounds.

When she saw that I was making fudge again she said “Oh No!” not again.

Well it’s been so long now I am not sure what the fudge texture was that I was looking for and I have found some really great flavors of fudge to test out. 

The next one on my list is this Key Lime Fudge from Shugary Sweets.  She must be obsessed with fudge also because she also has a Butter Finger Fudge posted.
