I used to make a fudge something like Persian or Russian, but the recipe was irretrievably lost in Katrina. After experimenting for a while (of course, consuming all my mistakes) and with my family's blessing, I came up with this reasonable facsimile. If pecans are used, it tastes similar to pralines, but I've also used almonds and cashews, with good results.
