“This recipe is from my mother. This is only one of the many candy recipes she makes at Christmas and gives away to friends.” - by KAYKWILTS
Original recipe yields 16 servings
- Butter a 8 or 9 inch square baking dish.
- In a large heavy saucepan, stir together the brown sugar and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until the temperature reaches 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.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the butter, vanilla and walnuts. Continue to beat with a sturdy spoon until the mixture looses its gloss. Pour into the prepared pan. Score into squares with a knife then set aside until firm, about 5 minutes. Cut into squares and serve or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

"Great recipe! Turned out perfect. The reason another users came out runny was because it was not heated to the proper temp. Sugar is a very tricky substance to work with so temp. is very important...." See more Too cool of temp makes it soft or runny and too hot will make it hard or crumbly!"
"It was my first time making any candy like this and i think i stirred it for to long because it was more crystally than i would have expected. Nevertheless it was good, and i will definitly try again!..." See more"
"I have been looking for this type of recipe for years! I really don't like the "soft" fudge at all and all the recipes I have tried seem to produce that texture. This is the one I was looking for ex..." See moreactly! This fudge is often found at church bake sales. THANK YOU so much for sharing! Lorrie"
