I have never made fudge this way but I was very happy with the end result. Also used pecans and sprayed the dish with non stick cooking spray. I did cook the mixture until it reached 240 degrees on the candy thermometer. Great flavor and it is nice to now have two favorite fudge recipes. Thank you Nana Lee for posting Paula Deen's recipe. Made and reviewed for the December Secret Ingredient game.
