Thanksgiving is almost here and that calls for the best pumpkin pie fudge with gingersnap crust that’s topped off with chopped walnuts! I only make this fudge during Fall or Thanksgiving because making it any other day just seems plain weird.

In general, I am obsessed with pumpkin, as you can tell from these Easy Pumpkin Truffles or these Easy Pumpkin Donuts or these delicious Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting. Also, let’s not forget some other classics like this Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust and this  Easy Pumpkin Cake and this super popular Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe.

This is the best pumpkin spice fudge!

The spice flavor comes from the flavored creamer and the addition of pumpkin pie spice as well as the gingersnap crust. You can also use your own homemade spice blend or use whatever is available in the market.

Tips for no bake pumpkin fudge recipe (Pumpkin pie fudge)

  • Use best quality of white chocolate for the best overall flavor.
  • You can replace walnuts with chopped pecans or almonds, if you like.
  • Adjust the amount of pumpkin pie spice, based on your preference.
  • Orange gel coloring is optional but recommended because it makes the fudge more vibrant.
  • Gingersnap crust can be omitted entirely or replaced with no bake  Graham Cracker Pie Crust or Oreo Pie Crust.
  • Condensed milk cannot be replaced with evaporated milk because evaporated milk is thinner and not sweetened and that will make the fudge very soft and quite runny.

I know that pumpkin fudge recipes with marshmallow creme/cream or marshmallow fluff or evaporated milk are more common but my recipe does not include that. Instead I like to use a combination of condensed milk and International Delight ® Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer.

Honestly, I believe that’s what makes my fudge so much better than others as well as so rich and creamy plus, it’s bursting with pumpkin spice flavors! If you don’t have it, you can simply replace it with heavy cream.

  1. I seriously love this time of the year, too! Pumpkin any other time of the year is just odd…but Fall just isn’t complete without pumpkin treats! This fudge sounds delicious, and what a clever way to boost the flavor with that International Delight creamer. Thanks for sharing! #client

  2. I love this recipe! I never get bored of cooking with pumpkin
