      This is a favorite from my childhood. One year I didn't cook it long enough and we had a big pot of fudge that wasn't hard - you could eat it with a spoon - and we loved it!! In later years, I made a big batch like that, poured it into a seal tight container and mailed it to my brother for Christmas. Whenever I make it now, I always save some out before the soft ball stage just so we can have spoonfulls. Yes, it's like caramel - almost - or what my mother called pinnoche - but not sticky. It's fantastic even without the nuts.

      Delicious caramel fudge. It took a bit longer to reach softball stage because of the higher proportion of liquid to sugar compared to regular fudge. I made half the recipe and even in a two-quart pot, it foamed up to within an inch of the rim, so be sure you use a larger size pot than you think you need.
