Let me tell you - my daughter knows the routine by now... It was coming up on Halloween and I was browsing through pinterest. She saw a pin about salted pumpkin fudge and immediately said "we should make this for my teacher for Halloween mommy". You got it babe! I mixed up double batch of these AMAZING fudges and the kids brought them in. I also brought a few for my co-teacher that I was subbing with for the day and everyone was raving about them. They were so delicious and decadent! In the original post she mentions drizzling dark chocolate over the top... That might need to happen the next go round!
Salted Pumpkin Fudge
(recipe found at pizzazzerie.com via pinterest.com)
1 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
5 ounces evaporated milk
1/2 cup mashed pumpkin puree
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 (7 ounces) container marshmallow crème
1 (12 ounces) package white chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Sea salt for garnish (2 tablespoons to ¼ cup)
Line square baking pan with parchment paper for easy fudge removal. Combine sugars, butter, evaporated milk, pumpkin, and spices in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until melted and combined. Continue stirring until temperature reaches 234 (soft ball stage). Quickly remove from heat to prevent burning, stir in white chocolate chips, marshmallow crème, and vanilla extract. Stir until melted and combined. Garnish with sea salt. Cool completely. Cut into squares. You can also chill before cutting to make it easier to cut perfect squares.
