    What's the best tasting fudge you've ever made? What's the one fudge you want to try?

    Oreo fudge is by far the best(and richest!) fudge I've ever eaten! My husband makes this around the holidays. Pumpkin fudge is something I want to try and plan on making it soon.

    Oh love this topic! I was just saying to my husband how I've seen so many different ideas for fudge lately. I haven't made it myself yet, but I had an absolutely *amazing* pumpkin fudge that a friend made (I probably should get the recipe, honestly). As for ones that I'd like to try, I really would like to try a red velvet one soon, and I saw a pecan pie one that my husband is keen on trying, so I'll probably give that a shot, too.

    Ohh but who does love a good s'mores flavour profile? Don't be embarrassed, I absolutely *love* people who give me delicious but simple recipes, lol ;). The best kind, really.

    I have always been a fan of traditional chocolate fudge with nuts, but the pumpkin fudge also sounds amazing. I think I am going to make a batch for Thanksgiving?

    A local farmer's market sells fudge made by an Amish woman. In the fall, she makes pumpkin fudge, and it is incredible. I wish I could find a recipe for it.

    Welcome to the forum @lmjen :) Pumpkin fudge sounds delicious! Does it actually contain pumpkin or is it just the spices? If it's just spices I imagine you could adapt any good fudge recipe by just adding spice (and orange colouring if you like).

    Thank you for the welcome Becky. After a long online search for a pumpkin fudge recipe, I tried this one https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/9432/pumpkin-fudge/, yesterday. The taste is wonderful but the texture was not like fudge. Instead of throwing the batch away, I decided to roll them into truffles, that I will dip in white chocolate.

    Sorry about your post going in the moderation queue, must have been because of the link.

    What kind of fudge do you like - the soft chewy stuff or the more crystalline stuff?

    I am a big peanut butter fan so unsurprisingly peanut butter fudge is my absolute favorite. The first time I actually had it I bought it from a small specialty shop that has since closed down and it was amazing. I make my own once in a while and it’s definitely a treat.
