1 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2/3 cup evaporated milk 1/2 cup mashed pumpkin (canned) 2 tablespoons butter or margarine 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1 package (12 ounce size) vanilla flavored baking chips 2 cups miniature marshmallows 1/3 cup chopped nuts (optional) 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Using butter or margarine, lightly grease the sides and bottom of a medium saucepan. Place the sugar, evaporated milk, pumpkin, butter, salt, and pumpkin pie spice in the saucepan. Stirring constantly over medium heat, bring the mixture to a boil and boil for 12 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the baking chips and marshmallows until melted. Stir in the nuts and vanilla.
Pour into an 8-inch square pan that has been lined with foil and greased. Chill mixture until set.
Cut into small squares to serve. Cover and store in refrigerator.

For the two raters above- if using white chocolate or probably even vanilla chips, usually you have to 1.5 - double the chips because of the lack of cocoa in them which makes them set.

I had the same trouble as the last poster. I made the "fudge" last night, but it never set. I have something about the consistency of peanut butter.
I did use vanilla chips, and followed the rest of the recipe to the latter.
I thought about maybe more marshmallows next time, but I'm afraid it will just make it gooier. Any ideas?

I made the recipe with white chocolate chips because my grocer did not have vanilla chips. Mine never set. So I now have this delicious pumpkin goo.
