Thanks so much for the recipes!! I can't imagine a better combination: pumpkins and pecans. Also, the fudge looks so good also.

I love pumpkins, I grew quite a few this year so I should have plenty of puree. I am always looking for new recipes and have never seen this before. Thanks

Okay, I'm hooked. I've made this recipe twice now.

The second time I used white chips instead of butterscotch chips. I'm not a big fan of butterscotch.

Hmmm. Tastes so much pumpkin-ier with the white chips too. I even made it in the microwave.

If you want to see how to make it that way, check out this post: http://fruitfulwords.wordpress.com/2008/10/18/pumpkin-fudge-just-got-pumpkinier/
