Pumpkin Maple Fudge

The very first year Derek and I were married, I went all out on the holiday baking.  When you are newly married, the holidays are twice as exciting, and for Thanksgiving and Christmas that year, I baked as much as our small budget would allow us.  I actually made four different kinds of fudges for Christmas.  Four!  That's not even counting the cookies and store bought candy.  It's a wonder we made it through January without having to buy all new pants.

Lucky for you guys, all that fudge recipe experimenting made me a fudge-making expert, and now I come up with a new variety practically every month.  Since Thanksgiving is in two days, I thought I'd share my newest fudge recipe with you.  In case you are an over-eager holiday food maker, like I am.  You may not need another pumpkin recipe with the abundance of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, but this recipe is great for Christmas too!

Pumpkin Maple Fudge

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
4 tbsp pureed pumpkin
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
1 bag white chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows

1. Combine sugar, milk, pumpkin, butter, and spice in a saucepan.  Heat over medium-high heat.  Bring to a boil, and boil five minutes without stirring.

2. Remove from heat and stir in maple flavoring.

3. Add white chocolate chips and stir until melted.  Add marshmallows and stir until melted.  Pour into a greased dish - refrigerate until set.
