Autumn Pumpkin Spice Fudge

This recipe is from Candy-Recipes yahoo group sent by Carolyn Ranker. I made this for Thanksgiving.

Autumn Pumpkin Spice Fudge
3 c. sugar
1 c. milk
3 tbsp. Light corn syrup
½ c. mashed cooked pumpkin
¼ tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Pumpkin pie spice
1 ½ tsp. Vanilla extract
½ c. butter
 ½ c. chopped nuts (optional)

In 3 qt. saucepan, combine sugar, milk, syrup, pumpkin and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat to medium, continue boiling, do not stir. When mixture heats to 232 deg. on candy thermometer (soft ball stage) remove from heat. Stir in pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, butter and the nuts. Let cool to lukewarm (110 deg. on candy thermometer). Beat until very thick and until it loses some of its gloss. Quickly, pour mixture into greased 8-inch square pan. When fudge is firm, cut into pieces.

new design + name

As of 1-3-12: I've re-named my blog name (which used to be "Hanunyah's Sweet Creations") to "Ranch Girl's Sweets 'N' Treats". "Sweet Creations" is a pretty common name, so I figured I'd change it to something a little different ;). My URL is still the same, though.

Also, a big thanks goes to my older sister (@ who has re-designed my blog and fixed-up all of the HTML. So, I hope you enjoy the new layout!
