Creamy Pumpkin Pie Fudge

The holidays were coming quickly this past year. Every Christmas I try to make a "Goodie" to suit the taste buds of everyone on my list of gift giving. I made a few recipes that called for using canned pumpkin. I had a little of the pumpkin left and didn't want to waste it, so I made up a batch of this amazing pumpkin fudge. I tried it on my Niece before I served it as part of my gift giving. I had her close her eyes and bite. "Wow, that's good!" She uttered, "It has a familiar taste. I love it! Best Fudge Ever!" She remarked. Then devoured 4 more pieces and begged for her very own plateful.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

3/4 c
butter
3 c
sugar
2/3 c
evaporated milk
1/2 c
solid canned pumpkin (puree)
2 Tbsp
light karo syrup
1 1/2 tsp
pumpkin pie spices
12 oz bag(s)
vanilla or white chocolate chips
1 (7oz) jar(s)
marshmallow cream
1 c
chopped pecans

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Butter a 9x9" baking dish and set aside.
2
In a large 3 quart saucepan melt the butter on medium heat. Add the evaporated milk, sugar, pumpkin, Karo syrup and the pumpkin Pie spice.
3
Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly until a full rolling boil. Continue stirring as the mixture boils until temperature reaches 234 degrees, about 8-10 minutes. Check with a candy thermometer. Once it reaches 234 degrees, remove from heat.
4
Quickly add the vanilla chips and the marshmallow cream. Stir to combine well and melt the chips. At this point you can add a few drops of orange food coloring to get the color of a pumpkin pie. When the chips have melted, fold in the chopped pecans.
5
Pour the mixture into the buttered dish. Let it set 2-3 hours until firm, or refrigerate for 1 hour and cut into 1" sized pieces. (Enjoy)
