Simply the BEST fudge I've ever had, light and melt-in-your mouth texture, rich but not too rich flavor, and beautiful light orangish-cream color. You will be in heaven when you bite into one of these incredible squares. These are from my Great Aunt Triplett.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring margarine, sugar, and milk to a full boil in a heavy 4 quart cooker, stirring constantly. Boil 5 minutes over medium heat.
  2. Remove from heat, gradually stir in chips until melted; add marshmallow creme, stirring until well blended. Add pumpkin, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Beat until well blended and pour into a buttered 13 by 9" pan. Cool in refrigerator overnight to firm it up a bit.
  4. The next day it will still be a bit too soft, so cut into 1 inch squares and put onto another pan to air dry, turning every once in a while, for a day.

I am so sorry to say that this was just awful! What a dissapointment!!!!!! I was so excited to make this recipe today that I purchased a candy thermometer, candy cups & candy boxes. I began early and followed the recipe exactly as printed. It has been 6 (six) hours and this fudge is still not at all set. I told co workers that they would be getting some homemade fudge the day after Thanksgiving & they were happy. This is an embarrasment and this is the first recipe from recipezaar that was a flop. It was a waste of my time, cost of ingredients, and effort. I would recommend that you go to another recipe. Again, sorry but I must be honest and let other cooks & bakers know my poor results of this recipe.

I used this recipe to make fudge for the first time. The recipe was easy to follow and produced very unique fudge. I substituted the marshmallow cream for about 1 cup of marshmallows. Also I made one batch with white choc chips < not sure what vanilla chips are> and another batch with choc chips. The fudge hardened quite fast which was also great. I did cook the fudge a little longer than suggested by this recipe also.
