Pumpkin Festival Sweeties
In the world of Harvest Moon, the Pumpkin Festival is an opportunity for children and all others who love sweets to consume them to excess. In FoMT/MFoMT, in fact, if you enter the house at any point in the afternoon on 30 Autumn, your spouse will waylay you and force you to join your family for a feast of sweets. Your character will be so overcome with the effects of his/her gluttony that he/she will be unable to return to work afterwards! When a good friend (and fellow Harvest Moon/Rune Factory player) sent me a very generous portion of Fudge with his own Recipe for my Birthday, I knew I had to feature the Recipe somewhere on my Harvest Moon Cooking Site.
Initially, I could not think of a Fudge Dish in any Harvest Moon game. Then I remembered the Pumpkin Festival! Mars-Frog's Fudge is a perfect offering for the traditional Pumpkin Festival celebrations. Rich, sweet and delectably smooth, any one who loves sweets is certain to enjoy it. It is not Chocolate Fudge, but rather Peanut Butter Fudge.
The photograph shows the magnificent Fudge guarded rather appropriately by a Chipsqueek from Rune Factory 2, as Chipsqueeks love anything that contains nuts. The wonderful Birthday card from Mars is included in the picture.
Here are the ingredients:
Thank you, Mars!
