Pumpkin Fudge adorned with Heath Bits





Bring it on!! It is officially Holiday time in this household. My mom’s visit was awesome and the lovely Miss Indigo is now outfitted for a southern California Winter (laugh if you must). Something that I “outfitted” the family in is extra pounds…I mean um fudge!







INGREDIENTS

• 2 tablespoons butter
• 2 1/2 cups white sugar
• 2/3 cup evaporated milk
• 1 cup white chocolate chips
• 7 ounces marshmallow creme
• 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
• 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 package heath bar bits



DIRECTIONS



1. Line a round cake pan with aluminum foil and a circle of parchment paper on the bottom. Place the Heath Bits on the bottom of cake pan and set aside.







2. In a 3 quart saucepan, heat milk and sugar over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.







3. Mix in pumpkin puree and cinnamon; bring back to a boil. Stir in marshmallow creme and butter. Bring to a rolling boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 18 minutes.







4. Remove from heat, and add white chocolate chips and vanilla. Stir until creamy and all chips are melted. Pour into prepared pan. Cool, remove from pan, and cut into pie slices. Store in a cool, dry place.



This stuff is just plain lovely & I do hope you can enjoy!

The title had me sold. These sound just amazing! I adore heath bars (a guilty pleasure of mine) and you know I love pumpkin. Thank you for combining two of my favorites into a circle of fudgy goodness!

This looks amazing! The heath bar is the perfect touch and I have to agree with Monet, there is nothing better than a recipe that includes pumpkin in the fall :)

Foodiva said...

This pumpkin fudge really does look sinfully lovely! But thank you for making us less guilty for eating it by adding the health bar bits...

Btw, I left you a blogger's award on my site as an appreciation of how much I've enjoyed your posts and your friendship!

Woo, I don't even know what a heath bar is and I'm already drooling. Awesome sounding fudge.

Michele said...

I made something similar to this last year and it was good, but this looks absolutely wonderful. I may have to add it to my Thanksgiving spread.

Danielle said...

Mmm pumpkin fudge, I've been wanting to make this for a while. Your pictures are amazing, they make me really hungry!

Monica H said...

I had my first taste of pumpkin pie fudge just the other day. I wish it had pie crust chunks in it :-)

And though it's not fudge, my mom brought me over some candied pumpkin today and it was awesome- very much like candied pineapple but with a crispy outside and gooey center.

I live the toffee in this. Yum!
