Pumpkin Spice Caramels are the perfect fall treat! Combining the pumpkin flavor with the gooey caramel texture guarantees a new family favorite recipe!
Prep Time5 mins

Total Time30 mins
Servings: 70


  • 1/2 cup butter 1 stick
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 14- oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice


  • Prepare a 7×11 glass pan by lining with foil or parchment and spraying with non-stick spray. (9×13 can be used at well, or for thicker caramels, use an 8×8)
  • Melt butter in a large glass bowl. (Mine melted in 1 minute in the microwave.)
  • Add all other ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Microwave mixture in 4 intervals, quickly stirring after each interval and returning to the microwave. (1st heating: 6 minutes, 2nd heating: 6 minutes, 3rd heating: 5 minutes, 4th heating: 5 minutes)
  • Stir caramel once more then pour into prepared pan. Cool until set- if you’re in a hurry, you can place the pan in the fridge for about 2 hours. Otherwise it will set up nicely just resting in room temperature for several hours.
  • Remove from pan and slice into strips with a large knife or cooking shears. Cut into small squares and wrap in wax paper, (or purchase wax paper squares here– so cheap!!) twisting the ends to seal.
  • Store in an airtight container. Will keep for several weeks!
  • *Note: I have a 1000 watt microwave and these are soft caramels. Check your microwave’s wattage first (it’s found on a label just inside the door) then adjust time as needed. If you want firmer caramels, I’d add 1 minute to each interval.
