Spiced Butterscotch Fudge Recipe

This butterscotch fudge is a nice change from the more typical chocolate varieties. When I have a craving for a little sweet, this fits the bill.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:54 servings


  • 1 tablespoon plus 3/4 cup butter, divided
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 package (11 ounces) butterscotch chips
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, optional
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1. Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with foil and grease the foil with 1 tablespoon butter; set aside. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and remaining butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cook until a candy thermometer reaches 238° (soft-ball stage), stirring occasionally.
  • 2. Remove from the heat. Stir in chips until melted. Stir in marshmallow creme, pecans if desired and vanilla. Spread into prepared pan. Cool to room temperature; cover and refrigerate. Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Discard foil; cut fudge into 1-in. squares. Yield: About 3-1/4 pounds.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
