Back in my high school days, I used to put in a lot of hours working at our local ice cream shop. At the time, it paid surprisingly well compared to other jobs ($10 an hour plus tips!), and it also came with the very nice perk of being able to eat the best ice cream to my heart’s content. I mean, how was I supposed to educate customers on the flavors if I hadn’t made it my personal mission to try them all (several times)?

In addition to homemade ice cream, the owners would also make the richest, most indulgent fudge. They regularly offered it in chocolate, chocolate peanut butter (which was chocolate fudge with an equal amount of straight up Jiffy on top), penuche, and maple walnut. I’d be hard-pressed to choose a favorite, but when I found myself suddenly wanting (needing!) fudge the other week, I couldn’t stop fixating on the maple flavor.

I also couldn’t stop fixating on pecan and pumpkin pies. ‘Tis the season! So, I did what I had to do, and combined all of them to make a Maple Pecan Pumpkin Pie Fudge.

Let’s just take a moment to appreciate that.

I’m in a very happy groove in the kitchen these days, where I’ll be recipe testing and say to myself, “This is so good! You nailed it. Nice work!” and then of course I immediately realize a) I’m talking to myself again and b) maybe I should cool it on the self-congratulating because I don’t want to get a big ego. This is followed by c) screw it! You’re way too critical and hard on yourself 99.9% of the time, so acknowledging a Maple Pecan Pumpkin Pie Fudge well done is a good thing! Obviously, I still need to work on the talking to myself thing…

    Yum! Maple syrup is so expensive where I live and seems like some forbidden ingredient. Either way, any kind of fudge with nuts is my kick, but especially something with a caramel undertone and crunchy bits.

  2. Cadry says

    I had kind of forgotten about the existence of fudge. It was one of those random things people might have at a holiday party, but I’ve never made my own. I don’t think I’ve had fudge since I was a kid! So I don’t have a favorite, but I’d be more than happy to have your Maple Pecan Pumpkin Pie Freezer Fudge be my new favorite! 🙂

    1. Amanda says

      I’d be more than happy for you to have this fudge recipe be your new favorite too. 🙂

  3. liz says

    I love peanut butter and chocolate fudge!

  4. Melissa says

    I used to be against any non-chocolate fudge, and anything with chocolate is definitely still my preference — my favorite is probably rocky road with (vegan) marshmallows and walnuts. But I’ve come to also very much appreciate maple fudge now, too.

  5. Because this has cashew butter..I know I’ll love it!
    My favorite fudge has always just been simple chocolate!

  6. Sophia says

    I’ve definitely always been a PB & chocolate kinda gal, but this recipe reminded me of a maple fudge I had as a kid (probably close to 20 years ago). There’s always more room for maple syrup!

  7. Phoebe says

    I haven’t made fudge in such a long time! Chocolate peanut butter was always my fave!!

  8. Abby says

    I’m all about the dark chocolate! Maybe with some tart fruit like cranberries.

  9. Kristina says

    I love peanut butter fudge!

  10. Stacy says

    I love them all!! This recipe is calling to me though, as I am a huge pumpkin fan. 🙂

  11. Shana says

    I had the same craving a few weeks ago! I made a batch of chocolate fudge and peanut butter fudge. But this would satisfy all my holiday cravings in one bite!

  12. Sarah P. says

    This fudge looks AMAZING! I love chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate and nut fudge. I would love to try this recipe! Great giveaway 😀

  13. Lydia Claire says

    Chocolate, not too original.

    1. Amanda says

      Sometimes plain old chocolate hits the spot. 🙂

  14. Kathie says

    Maple nut fudge has always been a favorite. The pumpkin sounds like a great addition!

  15. Amber says

    Oh, man. That fudge looks amazing! My go-to flavors have always been dark chocolate with walnuts and s’mores, but I haven’t had any fudge since going vegan. Definitely making this! 🙂

  16. Terri Cole says

    I haven’t had any fudge since going vegan. I’m also trying to go oil-free for health reasons, so I guess I won’t be trying your scrumptious looking recipe. Back in the day though, I liked good old chocolate fudge with pecans.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  17. Aimee B. says

    I’ve always loved peanut butter fudge, but chocolate is also a favorite. Your recipe looks outstanding. I may need to give it a try! 🙂

  18. Oh my GOODNESS, am I excited for this!!!! Maple syrup is my life, no joke. I made some super good peanut butter-carob fudge this summer.

  19. jacquie says

    fudge is not my candy of choice though i am tempted to give this recipe a try.

  20. Danielle Buncik says

    This fudge looks delectable!!! I am a fan of anything and everything pumpkin.
    My absolute favorite kind of fudge would have to be a chocolate sea salt fudge. Sweet and salty goodness!

  21. Corrine says

    Peanut butter is always delicious!

  22. Anna says

    I love maple syrup. Favorite sweetener by far!

  23. Jennifer says

    I am not a HUGE fudge person. It is just so rich (it makes my jaw hurt when things are too rich) but I recently made a raw almond pumpkin fudge. It was amazing!

    1. Amanda says

      I know what you mean about some fudge being way too rich. This recipe is rich, but not in an over-the-top sort of way (one of the many pluses of using more wholesome ingredients!). Raw almond pumpkin fudge sounds amazing!

  24. nikki says

    Vegan rocky road <3

  25. tammigirl says

    We make our own and i feel like the peanut butter fudge is unrivaled.

  26. Caitlin says

    this looks INSANE, WOMAN! i’m pretty sure i could eat an entire batch of this by myself.

  27. Ashley says

    I’m a purist! I like traditional, plain fudge. Maybe a few nuts if I’m feeling exotic. 😉

  28. Jennipher Hulse says

    My favorite kind of fudge is Rocky Road. I would loove to see a vegan version from you. I tried this recipe the other day. I had never made any kind of fudge that didn’t involve chocolate before trying this recipe. I love it. The only thing I will do differently next time (I will be making it again) will be doubling the recipe. I feel this recipe didn’t make very much. It could even use to be tripled. 🙂

    1. Amanda says

      I think I may need to make a rocky road version…that sounds incredible.
      I’m so happy you loved the pumpkin pie fudge, Jennifer! I agree–it makes a small amount (this was intentional on my part since I can’t be trusted around it 😉 ). Definitely feel free to double or triple the recipe!

  29. craftyone says

    I have not had fudge in a long while and do not have a fave. I do favor those with some type of nut and without butterscotch.

  30. Annette says

    Peanut Butter Fudge is my favorite kind of fudge.

  31. Becca F says

    Chocolate walnut fudge. I’m a simple girl.

  32. Kim says

    I stumbled upon this recipe last week and just made it tonight as written. Oh. My. Goodness. It is so delicious! My boyfriend and I had to restrain ourselves from eating the whole batch in one sitting. My only suggestion is to double the recipe 😉

    Definitely bookmarking this one to make again and again!
