  1. Butter an 8 inch square baking dish, and set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, sour cream, corn syrup and butter. Bring to a boil; cover and cook one minute. Stir until well blended. Remove the lid, and without stirring, heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.
  2. Remove from the heat, and add the chocolate and vanilla. Do not stir. Set the pan over a wire rack until the mixture cools to about 175 degrees F (80 degrees C). This should take about 15 minutes.
  3. Beat the fudge with a wooden spoon until it thickens and loses its gloss. Stir in walnuts, and pour into the buttered dish. Spread evenly, then set aside to cool. Cut into small squares.

I made this fudge over the holidays & it was a big hit! It had a nice creamy consistancy. I also could not find a vanilla fudge recipe to try, so I made this one. I omitted the chocolate & added...

I followed the recipe word for word and even used a candy thermometer. It came out so hard that it couldn't be cut or broken into pieces, couldn't even bit it. I wouldn't try the recipe again.

I wanted to try a recipe with sour cream to see how it would cook and come out. I used white chocolate chips and a rootbeer flavoring. I added more butter and left out the nuts. The fudge was ...

OH. MY. GOSH. This turned out soooooo creamy and wonderful~ almost caramel-ish. I didn't have unsweetened chocolate squares so I used about 8 ounces of Hershey's milk chocolate chips. (I didn'...

I was afraid that this wouldn't turn out due to it's unconventional cooking method. It turned out beautifully. The next batch I'm going to add coconut!

I followed the directions EXACTLY and it turned to a rock hard clump in my pan! Don't make this, the chunks we got out weren't even good! I will stick to my recipe with fluff. Zero stars.

Yummy! I love making fudge and this came out great!
