Heat pumpkin and melt baking chips

Place pumpkin into a small micro safe bowl, cover loosely with cling wrap. Heat for 35 seconds to cook. Keep hot.

Using a double boiler over simmering water, add condensed milk and all baking chips stir to incorporate. When it is completely melted, stir to combine.

Add hot pumpkin, reserved pie crust, vanilla, diced orange peel, pumpkin pie spice and stir together.

Step 3

Pour at once into prepared pan. Sprinkle with toffee candy bits. Allow to sit undisturbed for at least 2 hours.

Using foil overhang as handles, remove fudge from pan. Slice into 2 inch servings using a long bladed knife or pizza cutter.
