This pumpkin fudge is by Southern Living Magazine but recreated by Tami Dunn on YouTube and it’s perfect for the holiday time. Fudge is not something I would normally go for, but pumpkin fudge sounds amazing. I think it would be a great dessert addition for Thanksgiving because it would be something different instead of the traditional pies. I am adding this to my Thanksgiving recipe list, and I know a lot of people would be surprised. Although I haven’t made it yet, I know most of my family members would like it because they love sweet desserts. It’s not too heavy and it’s something that you can snack on throughout the day after your meal.



  • 3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tbsp corn syrup
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 (12 oz) white chocolate chips
  • 1 (7oz) marshmallow cream
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


First, pour the sugar, melted butter, evaporated milk, canned pumpkin, corn syrup, and pumpkin pie spice into a pot over medium heat. Stir occasionally the whole entire time until it comes to a boil. Let it boil for about 12 minutes.

Next, take the pot off the stove and add in the vanilla extract, white chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, and toasted pecans. Stir everything together until it is all melted. Then, pour the pumpkin fudge mixture into a 9 x 9″ pan that is lined with parchment paper, and let it stand on the counter for 2 hours.

Overall, I would love to try this out myself for the seasonal time during the holidays. I think the texture from the pecans makes the fudge nice and crunchy instead of smooth which would be perfect. Also, it’s a simple recipe to follow along with, and I am glad that she recreated this recipe.
