    Lovely flavour, and so easy to make! Recipe only uses half a tin of pumpkin, so I have a feeling I will be making another batch before next weekend!  -  26 Oct 2014

    I followed the directions (without a candy thermometer) and this came out great!! Cook till it boils. Add ingredients..cook till it boils again.. Bring to rolling boil..then cook for 18 min (set your timers) and stir occasionally. I will DEFINATELY make this recipe again! What a nice change from ordinary fudge!
