This is great for the holidays and great anytime. Anyone who likes pumpkin pie should really like this!! Cook time is actually time required for cooling.

Finally, a batch of fudge that set up! I should've used a smaller pan.. No one told me HOW LONG it takes to get to a soft ball stage (236 degrees) .. takes forever, lol! Lots of boiling, so don't walk away. . it didn't actually look like a ball (is it supposed to??) but it reached the right degree.. I had crystallization, but I think it was b/c I was using a wire whisk.. anyway, very good! Will try again later this wk! Thank you!
