I know I shouldn't give this any stars because I did change the recipe slightly..but it turned out so great, I can't help myself! I had intended to make the maple walnut fudge, but after combining the basic ingredients, I discovered I was out of maple flavoring! Well, I don't live close to any stores, so what to do? After rummaging around in my pantry, I came up with a bottle of butter flavoring and another of rum extract. Humm, I really do love butter rum, so what did I have to lose? I added one teaspoon of each along with the chopped nuts. It came out beautifully...it almost tastes like a penuche fudge. I think next time I will put a little more rum in than butter, and after I buy some maple extract, I'll try that! This is such an easy, quick recipe, I know I'll be making it often (in many different ways). Thanks Krusty for this great new favorite.
Quick and easy - made the chocolate version and got the thumbs up from family.
I made the chocolate version of this fudge but it was just a little too sweet for everyone here. Also, the consistency seemed rather grainy but maybe I didn't cook long enough for the sugar to melt completely. This was simple enough, but needs some tweaking.
