How to Make Pumpkin Fudge
- Butter or grease an 8 x 8-inch pan, set aside.
- In a 3 quart saucepan, mix together sugar, milk, corn syrup, pumpkin, and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and continue boiling. Do not stir. When mixture reaches 232 degrees F on candy thermometer or forms a soft ball when dropped into cold water, remove from heat.
- Stir in pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, butter and nuts. Cool to lukewarm (110 degrees F on candy thermometer). Beat mixture until it is very thick and has lost some of its gloss. Quickly pour into prepared pan.
- Allow to cool and set until firm. When firmed cut into 36 squares.
