BROWN SUGAR FUDGE
Oh this stuff is sweet as a kiss and melts in your mouth . . . are you thinking about how it must taste yet? Serve it with coffee after a holiday dinner or wrap it up in a pretty box as a gift for someone who thought they had everything!3 cups light brown sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
3 tablespoons butter
Coat a 5-by-10-inch loaf pan or 8-by-8 pan with cooking spray. Line with plastic wrap leaving a 2-inch overhang on 2 sides.
In a medium saucepan combine brown sugar with evaporated milk and corn syrup; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling, stirring frequently, to soft ball stage or when candy thermometer registers 234° to 238°.
Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter; do not stir. Let cool for about 25 minutes, and then beat with a wooden spoon or on low speed with hand-held mixture until the fudge just begins to thicken. Add chopped nuts and beat for a few more minutes, until it begins to lose its gloss but is not too thick. Spread mixture in pan, smoothing top. Refrigerate, uncovered, until firm, about 25 minutes. Unmold fudge using plastic overhang, and discard plastic. Cut into pieces.
