Brown Sugar Fudge

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Old widow

I found this a few years a go on another cooking site and have been making it for christmas ever since. It reminds me of my Grandmothers butterscotch frosting recipe. I have made it without the nuts but I think it is better with them in. Cooking time includes cooling time.

My wife who is the expert says this is the best fudge ever.
I used just regular full fat milk not condensed and one cup of dark one cup of light brown sugar.
seamed to work just fine unlike a lot of other fudge recipes. I liked that you could adjust the texture and thickness with the powdered sugar at the end.
