I used to make something called Russian Fudge, but lost the recipe in Katrina and was unable to find it again. I modified some similar recipes I found and came up with this one which my family gave the 'seal of approval'. If made with pecans, it tastes a bit like pralines, but I have used cashews and almonds for variety, and all are good.
