Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine first 5 ingredients in saucepan.
2
Stir over med. heat to dissolve sugar.
3
Cook to 234° or until a little dropped in cold water forms a soft ball. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat.
PEGGI'S NOTE: This only took about 5 minutes to reach the soft ball stage for me,once it started to boil, which is 250° on my candy thermometer. I tested it at 234° & it still would not form a ball until 250°.
4
Add... butter.
5
Let stand without stirring until bottom of pan is lukewarm (120°).
PEGGI'S NOTE: This took about an hour to cool to 120°. If forming into nut roll, add vanilla now & continue to cool until all the way cool & pliable enough to knead. This took me 2 hours of cooling total to form into somewhat of a log. Then I wraped in wax paper & froze for 30 minutes. Then rolled in nuts.
6
ADD...vanilla.
7
Beat until creamy.
8
Mix in ...1/2 cup chopped nuts.
*Toast pecans or walnuts in 250° oven for 1 hour first.
9
Pour into greased 8 or 9" square pan.
Cut into squares.
10
This is another way to prepare this as suggested in an old cook book.

EASY NUT ROLL: Turn out cooled fudge onto buttered waxed paper. Knead or fold over several times. Shape into 12" roll. Place on waxed paper covered with
cut-up nuts. Roll up in the paper. Chill. Slice.
