Pumpkin-Butterscotch Fudge

Since we're so close to Christmas, I have GOT to get busy making candies and cookies. I thought today I would share my kids' favorite fudge recipe. I made this last year and they couldn't get enough. They've been asking me to make it for Christmas since October! The pumpkin and butterscotch are wonderful together. I have a cake recipe that has the two flavors and it is a definite family favorite, especially after a day when the tastes have had additional time to blend. Yum!!!

Pumpkin-Butterscotch Fudge

3 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter
2/3 c. evaporated milk (Not sweetened-condensed)
1/2 c. pumpkin (fresh or canned - not pie filling mix)
1 t. pumpkin pie spice
12 oz. package butterscotch chips
1 jar marshmallow Fluff
1 t. vanilla

Line a 13 x 9 pan with foil and spray or grease the foil. Set aside.

Combine first 5 ingredients in saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the mixture reaches 234 degrees on a candy thermometer. This should take 8-12 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in the chips until melted, then stir in the Fluff and vanilla until blended.

Pour immediately into prepared pan, spreading evenly. Allow to cool, cut into squares, and store in refrigerator.
