9 - 12 pieces
What you need
8 or 9 inches greased square pan
2 Cups Light Brown Sugar 5 oz. can EVAPORATED Milk 1 Cups (2 sticks) UNsalted Butter 2 Cups Confectioner's (powdered) sugar 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 1/2 tsp. maple flavoring 1 - 1 & 1/2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts
1. In a pan, on medium heat, bring to a boil the brown sugar, evaporated milk, and butter.
2. Once boiling, turn heat slightly down and boil stirring constantly for 10 min.
3. REMOVE from heat, and stir in the confectioner's sugar, vanilla, and maple flavoring
4. Beat with an electric mixer for about 3 minutes and then add the coarsely chopped walnuts.
5. Put in a 9" Buttered sq. pan and let cool to room temperature and tightly cover, and put in the refrigerator to cool for several hours or overnight then cut into squares.
Nanny Pat's Top Tip : When cutting the fudge, use a sharp knife and cut DOWNWARDS, try to do it in one move as the fudge will crumble if you cut like you would a loaf of bread.
