Easy Old Fashioned Brown Sugar Fudge

Janette Dixon


2 cups brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup evaporated milk

1/2 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts


Combine the sugars, milk, and butter. Cook, stirring occasionally, to soft-ball stage, or to 238° on a candy thermometer. Add the vanilla and let cool to lukewarm. Beat with wooden spoon until mixture loses its gloss; stir in the nuts. Pour fudge into a buttered 8-inch pan or pie plate.

Cool brown sugar fudge until firm then cut into squares. For a fun twist if you have used a round pan, using a sharp knife cut the fudge pie in half first then make small pie wedges.
