Delicious pumpkin fudge, with only 5 ingredients and made in the microwave, is perfect every time and the best no-bake treat for fall and Thanksgiving.
Prepare an 8-inch square baking pan by lining it with lightly greased parchment paper or non-stick foil.
In a microwave-safe bowl, place the chocolate chips. Microwave for 90 seconds at 70 percent power and stir well, using residual heat to melt the chips. If needed, continue to microwave at 15 second intervals until you can stir the chips smooth.
Alternatively, instead of the microwave, you can melt the chocolate chips in a heat-safe bowl set over a sauce pan of simmering water.
Add the pumpkin, spice, vanilla, and salt to the mixture. Stir very well until completely blended. Pour into the baking pan and spread evenly.
If desired, scatter pecans on top and press into fudge.
Chill for 2 to 4 hours until fully set. Remove the fudge by lifting the paper or foil. Cut into squares.
Please note, the recipe here uses Nestle-brand white “morsels,” which is actually confectionery coating. If you’re using white confectionery coating chips (no cocoa butter listed in the ingredients, use 24 ounces. If using pure white chocolate (with cocoa butter listed in the ingredients), use 28 ounces.
