Pumpkin Fudge (with butterscotch & walnuts)
2 tablespoons butter
2 1/2 cups white sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1 7 1/2 ounce jar of Marshmallow Fluff (scrape out as much as you can - its sticky!!!)
3/4 cup pureed pumpkin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Line a 9x9 inch pan with aluminum foil. In a large saucepan, heat evaporated milk and sugar over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring with a wooden spoon - keep an eye on this, because you don't want that sugar to burn!
|very strange consistency at the beginning!|
|Slowly it starts to come together (this is after the pumpkin and fluff are added!)|
Mix in pumpkin puree and cinnamon; raise up to a boil again. Stir in marshmallow creme, vanilla and butter. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring it constantly for about 18 - 20minutes - you will know it's ready because the colour of the mixture will deepen and take on a nice pumpkin colour.
|See what I mean - colour change!!|
Remove from heat, and the butterscotch chips and walnuts . Stir until creamy and all chips are melted. Pour into prepared pan.
|The hard part is waiting for it to set!!!|
Cool, remove from pan, and cut into squares.
|Happy Halloween: Michael Myers helped out with the cutting!|
Store in a cool, dry place. WARNING: this fudge is majorly sweet, so cut into very tiny pieces or you will look like a monster with no teeth by the time Halloween rolls around!
