Since it's officially pumpkin season, here are two of my favorite pumpkin fudge recipes. First up is the classic: Pumpkin Praline Fudge. I added the "praline" to reference the brown sugar and pecan flavors in the fudge, but in all honesty it mostly tastes like straight-up pumpkin pie. You can add more spices if you want, or try using candied nuts, or bits of chopped ginger, instead of regular nuts. I've also made a video showing how to make this pumpkin fudge, for those who like a little drool-o-vision before cooking.
Next is an even easier recipe: Pumpkin Butterscotch Fudge. This one is quite sweet, thanks to the butterscotch chips, but these chips contribute more than just sugar; they add the unmistakable taste of sweet, caramel butterscotch. I've added a little sour cream to try and balance the sweetness, and nuts would be another good addition.
