    I made Pumpkin Butterscotch FUDGE! 

    And I finally used my candy thermometer! I have always made fudge in the microwave. Easy, minimal mess and time involved. But, I figured if I’m gonna make it, I’m gonna make it right!

    So I was trying to figure out what I could make with pumpkin that wasn’t pie or bread and I saw a note about Pumpkin fudge! I started researching recipes and I came across this one! I figured it sound the best and used up my Butterscotch chips! I am so happy that I made it!



    2 cups sugar

    1 cup packed light brown sugar

    3/4 cup butter

    2/3 cup evaporated milk

    1/2 cup pumpkin puree

    2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

    7 oz marshmallow creme

    1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

    1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

    11 oz package of Butterscotch morsels


    1. Line a 9×13 inch baking pan with foil.
    2. PSFudge004In a heavy pot combine sugar, brown sugar, milk, pumpkin, butter and spice. Bring to a full boil and stir constantly. Continue for 12 to 15 minutes until candy thermometer reached soft-ball stage, 234 to 240 degrees F.
    3. Remove from heat and quickly add in butterscotch, marshmallow, 1/2 cup nuts and vanilla. Stir until butterscotch is completely melted and then add to pan. Add remaining 1/2 cup nuts to the top of the fudge.
    4. Allow to cool for at least 2 hours. 
    5. Cut into 1 inch squares, removing the foil, and share with good friends! 
    6. Store in an air tight container in the fridge.

    This fudge was very sweet! I made it with and without the walnuts. The walnuts helped to bring the sweetness down a bit. If you like super sweet fudge, this is the treat for you!
