How to make the best ever Sweet Potato Pie FUDGE..
I don’t know what it is, but whenever the holiday season hit I crave fudge. Somehow, I’ve made myself believe that it’s not truly a holiday season, if I can’t have an assortment of fudge. I’m talking vanilla fudge, chocolate fudge, and my new favorite… Sweet Potato Pie Fudge!
I came up with the idea of sweet potato pie fudge last year. I was browsing through several magazine, and I came across a recipe for pumpkin fudge. I loved the idea, but I knew that I would love the candy even more if I had used sweet potato instead of pumpkin. After a few test runs in the kitchen, it wasn’t long before I had made the perfect batch of creamy sweet potato pie fudge. My family, and I fell in love with the recipe, and I just know that y’all will too!
Try it out for yourself!

(Attention..In the video I said the mixture needs to reach 260 F. It actually has to reach 240 F , NOT 260 F.)
Sweet Potato Pie Fudge
- 12 ounces white chocolate baking chips
- 2/3 cup evaporated milk
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 12 tbsp salted butter
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup mashed sweet potatoes
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Line a 9x13 bake dish with parchment paper.
Combine all of the ingredients ( except the walnuts) in a large pot, and place over medium heat.
Let the ingredients melt, and stir continuously.
Once the mixture is nice and smooth, turn the heat up to medium high.
Stir, and let the candy mixture get up to 240 F. ( not 260 F as stated in the video..).
Remove the candy mixture from the stovetop, add it the walnuts, and stir.
Pour the mixture into the parchment paper lined bake dish, and let cool.
Once completely cool, cut the fudge into desired shapes.
