Very easy, festive and delicious Pumpkin Fudge made in 5 minutes with only 5 ingredients! The fudge is also gluten free and no bake!Pumpkin Fudge is the best way to dive into the pumpkin season. I am in no way rushing summer, I just couldn’t resist and had to share this recipe with you! I kept test tasting Pumpkin Fudge recipes for about two weeks and when I finally tweaked the recipe to my liking and gained probably 4 pounds while testing all the other recipes, I just thought it won’t be fair to keep this gem hidden until fall fully hits. You will find this fudge to be super creamy, soft and delicious, with a little crunchiness from the mixed in walnuts.

The fudge is also gluten free and no bake!Many fudge recipes have a very long list of ingredients and lots of steps, and I know many people are not that comfortable with kitchen thermometers and hot, bubbly candy. My mission was to create a super simple, creamy, delicious and easy to make Pumpkin Fudge. I must say that this is a winner, ready in 5 minutes, minus the refrigeration time. The recipe requires only a few ingredients and your ability to operate a microwave.

Tips and Tricks to make the perfect Patriotic Easy Fudge:

  • Use quality white chocolate, that is the main ingredient so you want it to be the best in order to get the best taste and texture. I really like using white chocolate melts/wafers (link before the recipe).
  • White chocolate is very pretentious, so be extra, extra careful when melting it, I do 20 seconds intervals in the microwave and lots of stirring to make sure I am not overheating it, if you overheat the white chocolate it will clump and separate and it will become unusable unfortunately.
  • You can skip the food coloring all together if you are not making the fudge for a festive occasion, at the same time you can intensify the to your preference.
  • Use gel food coloring, it is the best in this recipe as the liquid food coloring may make the white chocolate separate.
  • Mix-ins are optional, but here are my favorite ones: Toasted Pecans, Raisins, Cranberries and Walnuts.

Tools/Ingredients I used to make this Pumpkin Fudge Recipe:

  • White Chocolate Wafers – they redesigned to melt quicker and easier, which I find perfect for fudge recipes.
  • Gel Food Coloring – this set comes in a variety of colors and it won’t add extra water to your fudge, which is great.
  • Parchment paper – a kitchen staple, it just makes life so much easier with it’s non-stick magical powers.

Pumpkin Fudge made in 5 minutes with only 5 ingredients! Creamy, delicious, no bake and also gluten free.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6
Author: Catalina Castravet
Ingredients
  • 2 cups / 12 ounces/ 340 grams white chocolate melting wafers
  • 5 tablespoons condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
Optional:
  • food coloring: orange
  • mix ins: walnuts raisins, sprinkles etc
Instructions
  1. Line a regular muffin tin with paper cups, only 6 needed. Set aside.
  2. Combine the chocolate and condensed milk in a large, microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 20 seconds increments and stir after each one until the chocolate has melted. Make sure you stir well, after each interval as the residual heat will melt the chocolate without extra microwaving. This way you avoid overheating and separation of chocolate.
  3. Stir well until smooth, stir in pumpkin puree, walnuts, pumpkin spice and a few drops of orange gel food color (if using).
  4. Pour mixture into the lined muffin cups and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  5. When the fudge has cooled off and harden it can be served.
Recipe Notes

Make sure you don't add more condensed milk or pumpkin puree, the mixture will become runny and it won't settle. Add more pumpkin spice, for a more prominent flavor. Taste and adjust.
