This is a family favorite, especially with my grandchildren. I usually make them a stocking filled with homemade goodies every year at Christmas. This is definitely their favorite. So rich and wonderfully good.

evaporated milk
1 pinch
1 Tbsp
1/2 tsp
1 tsp
light corn syrup
3/4 c
chopped walnuts

Directions Step-By-Step

Line a 9x9 pan with foil or parchment paper with the ends overhanging for easy removal of fudge.Place all ingredients in heavy saucepan (except vanilla and nuts). Boil 19 minutes from the time it starts to boil; do not stir. Shake pan occasionally. Remove from heat and set pan in cold water. Add vanilla and nuts and beat until thick and penuche loses its gloss.
Pour into prepared pan. Cut into about 16 pieces when set.

Angela, thanks for posting this recipe! I had one from my favorite Aunt. She and I would make this fudge at least twice a year. She also taught me to cook many things. Spent many happy hours with her in her kitchen or my kitchen. All those memories came rushing back when I read this recipe. I lost my copy of hers and this is going to make many memories when I make this fudge for my family!
