I cannot begin to tell you how good this fudge is. The first time I ever tried pumpkin fudge was last fall at Cabela's, and I fell in love!! I knew that I was going to have to find a recipe so that I could make my own!! This recipe is so close to that!! I followed the directions to a T and the texture is soooo creamy and smooth!! I think next time I will increase the pumpkin pie spice by 1/2 teaspoon. It was very good as directed but I love my pumpkin spicy!! Thank you so much. Addendum: Just wanted to leave a little note... I loved this fudge so much I decided to give it out as favors at my October wedding. I made 6 batches and cut it into 2 inch squares and placed each square in a decorative box. The only things I did differently were to add 1/2 tsp of additional pumpkin pie spiceto each batch and I did not add the chopped pecans into the fudge mixture. I wanted to be able to cut the fudge smoothly, so I bought some candied pecans and put one on top of each piece. Our guests loved it! I can't tell you how many people asked for the recipe! Thanks for helping to make our wedding extra special by posting this awesome recipe!
