Old Fashion Brown Sugar Fudge

My best friend Hailey gave me this recipe (and a few others) when she gave me a candy thermometer for my birthday. To tell you the truth, I do not have a lot of experience with fudge. My parents are not really big fans of this sugary treat so I never ate it as a kid. I tried some for the first time last year and it was fantastic. Anyone who knows me knows that I am big junk food person. It takes a lot of effort not to engorge but its REALLY REALLY HARD 🙂

This recipe came out great and I love the pieces of nuts throughout it. I used walnuts, and I am using the excuse that walnuts are good for you in order to eat more of these scrumptious little guys.


  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Evaporated Milk
  • 1/4 cup Butter (I used salted butter)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped Walnuts or Pecans
Step 1: Combine brown sugar, granulated sugar, evaporated milk, and butter into a small saucepan.
Step 2: Over medium-high heat, cook ingredients until the soft ball stage, which is 238 degrees Fahrenheit on a candy thermometer.
Step 3: Add vanilla, let cool until lukewarm.
Step 4: Beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture loses its floss, stir in nuts.
Step 5: Pour into a buttered 5 in pan or pie plate.
Step 6: Cool fudge until firm and cut into squares. (I put mine in the fridge to make it cool faster and it only took about 20 minutes).
Step 7: Eat and enjoy!
