Just Like Fall

by L. Lindsey , on Oct. 2008

I had a request for a "fall" dessert with pumpkin in it (of course) and I got so many "It tastes like fall!!!" Not a single person that tried these didn't inhale and love these little treats. Also, they hardened really well and I cut them into shapes with cookie cutters. These are a Thanksgiving MUST!

Rich and tasty

I made these for a staff meeting and they were gone in no time. I received a lot of compliments and even one person who didn't like butterscotch or pumpkin ate two and said she really like them.

by S. Sudha , Toronto, ON on Apr. 2008

My aunt who had come down for holidays could not stop herself from asking me,"from where on earth did you learn to make this wonderful fudge?" That I suppose was the best comlpliment I had ever received when compared to the ones I get when I make other kinds of fudges!

Tastes Great

I skipped the cookie base entirely. The fudge portion is stand-alone good. You do need to be in the mood for pumpkin when you make it.
