Natchez, MS On My Mind


Darby's in Natchez

Natchez on my mind…well not really, it’s the Pumpkin Pie Fudge that’s on my mind.  Darby’s has the very best Pumpkin flavored fudge I’ve ever eaten.  Today I came across the recipe below…and that’s what brought Natchez to mind.  So, as soon as I can make it I’ll let you know if it holds a candle to their’s.  If so, I’ll make my own.  Oh, no, am I creating a monster?


Pumpkin Pie Fudge

Pumpkin Pie Fudge
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
2/3 cup fat-free evaporated milk
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 Tbsp corn syrup
2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
9 oz white chocolate chips
7 oz marshmallow fluff
1 tsp vanilla extract

Stir together the sugar, butter, milk, pumpkin, corn syrup, and pumpkin pie spice in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer reads 234 degrees F (soft-ball stage).

Remove pan from heat. Stir in white chocolate, marshmallow fluff, and vanilla until well blended. Pour into a greased, aluminum foil or parchment paper-lined pan. Let stand 2 hours or until completely cool. Cut fudge into squares.

Yield: 56 pieces.
