    Default Pumkin Fudget

    I haven't made this, but thinking of giving it a try as we generally have LOTS of pumpkins.

    Pumpkin Fudge

    Ingredients

    3 cup sugar
    3/4 cup butter
    1 - 5 1/3 ounce can evaporated milk (2/3 cup)
    1/2 cap canned pumpkin
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1- 12 ounce package butterscotch flavored pieces (2 cups)
    1 7 ounce jar marshmallow crème
    1 cup chopped pecans
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    Method
    Butter a 13 by 9 by 2 inch baking pan. In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, combine sugar, butter, evaporated milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
    Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat. Boil over medium low heat until mixture
    registers 234°F. (soft ball stage) on a candy thermometer, stirring constantly (about 25 minutes.
    Remove from heat and stir in butterscotch pieces until melted. Add marshmallow crème, nuts, and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Pour mixture into prepared pan, spreading evenly. Cool at room temperature. Cut into squares. Wrap tightly and store in refrigerator.
    Yields: 3 1/4 pounds

    Are butterscotch flavored pieces chips or candy? I'm having a duh moment over here. I'm assuming chips because it says mix until melted.

    Yes -- butterscotch flavored baking chips -- or butterscotch flavored candy bark, chopped into small pieces. I've used both.
