Spiced Pumpkin Fudge
Ingredients to make Spiced Pumpkin Fudge:
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup margarine or butter
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin pie mix
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 12 ounce package butterscotch morsels
1 7 ounce jar marshmallow creme
1 cup chopped almonds (toasted if preferred)
1 tsp vanilla
In a heavy cooker, combine the sugar, butter, evaporated milk, pumpkin pie mix and pumpkin pie spice. Using medium heat, bring the mixture to a full boil, stirring continuously to prevent sticking and scorching.
Use a candy thermometer to allow the mixture to reach 234 degrees. This should take approximately 10 minutes. Remove the cooker from the heat and stir in the butterscotch morsels and allow them to melt.
Next add the marshmallow creme, almonds and vanilla and stir until well blended. Quickly pour the mixture into a 13×9 pan that has been buttered or greased and spread until smooth.
Allow the fudge to completely cool at room temperature before cutting. Fudge can be stored in the refrigerator tightly …
