I am obsessed with pumpkin flavored anything right around September and this year we decided to make an easy pumpkin fudge. Then later in the year tweaked it a bit with other flavors for the end of the year with this microwave peppermint fudge you’ll love too.

Microwave Pumpkin Fudge

It’s finger lickin’ good…literally. Yes it is ooey gooey and yes it tastes like a little piece of pumpkin pie goodness in the form of a piece of fudge.

  • I know you want a bite! 😉

When it comes to fudge it’s all about flavor. This pumpkin fudge recipe is great because you can make it in your microwave, so it is fun to do with your kids (they can help). NO bake desserts are the best aren’t they?

Easy Pumpkin Spice Fudge Recipe

You only need a few ingredients to make it taste great! It contains no milk just pumpkin and white chocolate chips basically so it’s easy to throw together.

I love pumpkin throughout the year and if I can get away with not turning on my stove or oven I’m all about a recipe like that. This candy treat is quite easy. NO stove, oven or candy thermometer necessary friends. Just nuke, cool and enjoy your fudge set of squares.

Pumpkin White Chocolate Fudge

It is quite rich so just a little square is all you need to satisfy your pumpkin pie sweet tooth and it saves nicely in the fridge for a good week so you will have some sweets on hand for a little while.

That’s right, no sticky marshmallow creme or evaporated milk needed for this one.  You don’t even need a can of sweetened condensed milk. Just mix these 4 ingredients and spread into a baking dish to cool. Then slice and enjoy!

If you’re looking for more no bake pumpkin recipes we have another below that is fun and super yummy. Put a little dollop of whipped cream on top after you cut into squares when you serve them. It looks cute as well as adding a bit of creaminess too.

  1. Pumpkin – in a can or homemade pumpkin puree
  2. White chocolate chips
  3. Sweetened condensed milk
  4. Vanilla extract
  5. Pumpkin pie spice
  6. Baking pan to pour it into
    1. parchment paper on the bottom is helpful

Really you can make this recipe year round….especially if you are a bit obsessed with pumpkin like we are. Skip the boil over medium heat and stirring constantly stage, just microwave this one!

Best tip: Use paper bowls and spoons to make this, makes the cleanup SO much easier!! AND let your kids help. Since there is no “cooking” or baking required they’ll love getting involved.

Start by melting chocolate chips and condensed milk in microwave in 30 second intervals at 50 percent power. Stir in between times. This should take about 4-5 rounds until it is smooth without any chunks. 

  • Add pumpkin and spices and stir until combined well.
  • Put a piece of parchment paper inside a pan and spoon pumpkin fudge mixture inside. Smooth top so it is evenly distributed in the pan.
    • could sprinkle on fun things like sprinkles, candy corn or mini marshmallows on the top
  • Put in the fridge for 4 hours. Lift parchment paper out and use sharp knife to cut into squares. Enjoy
  • Keep in fridge if there are leftovers so they stay stiff and enjoy one piece at a time.

How long can you store homemade fudge?

Leftovers should be kept in your fridge though so they keep their shape vs. at room temperature.  Feel free to refrigerate this easy pumpkin fudge recipe in air tight containers can extend its life to two to three weeks.

TIP: With both easy microwave fudge recipes I like to lay a piece of parchment paper on the bottom before I pour into the prepared pan. This makes it really EASY to lift the whole thing out and slice cleanly.

  • You could prepare the pan with foil but I prefer to use wax or parchment instead.
    • Freezing in the initial cooling stage really solidifies it vs. putting it into your refrigerator.

Want to try making dinner in a microwave too? It’s totally possible because here we show how to boil pasta in the microwave and make into butter noodles at the end. Enjoy that with fudge as a dessert, or our cookie in a mug and you won’t need a stove!

Can I freeze homemade fudge?

Yes, but it’s best to do it uncut. Wrap in plastic wrap, then inside a freezer bag and freeze. Allow to thaw before slicing when you’re ready to enjoy it again. That way it will be smooth and creamy again.
