This Salted Toffee Pumpkin Spice Fudge is a true seasonal delicacy. It’s high on my list of favorite ways to use pumpkin in desserts. Inspired by a dreamy fudge I had at a confectionary on vacation, I had to develop a version of my own. Pumpkin has many uses and shouldn’t just be limited to traditional pie. Don’t misunderstand, I love pumpkin pie, but, there are so many other ways to enjoy it, too.
It never fails, as soon as Labor Day passes pumpkin spice starts showing up in coffee shops, pastry shops and cafes everywhere. It’s always been a welcome sight for me. If you’ve never tried those same warm and fuzzy flavors in the form of fudge, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Salted Toffee Pumpkin Spice Fudge has that sweet and salty twist that we gravitate to and in this pumpkin fudge it doesn’t disappoint. Serve it for Thanksgiving or alongside a cup of steamy coffee and savor every bite.
