MADE FOR SPRING, 2009 PAC. A really neat fudge/penuche to make AND eat. While I like nuts, I don't like nuts in my stuff (brownies, breads, fudge, etc.), but this sounded really interesting and super easy to make. IT WAS!! After bringing it to a rapid boil, I turned it down to a slower boil for the 5 mins. FYI, I used a medium 6" wide saucepan. Definitely a holiday treat worth making again.
