Buttery Walnut Fudge

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

I love fudge, but sometimes I just don't want all that chocolate....don't tell anyone I said that!!!! This is a great fudge, minus the chocolate. I found this recipe in TOH and did a make over on it to suit my taste. The original recipe calls for pecans, but we prefer walnuts in our fudge.

My local convient store sell these little squares of walnut fudge for .95! Now I make my own. Have made them with rum and maple flavoring as well. What a find! Thanks for the savings and sharing this recipe.
