"From Aunt Bee's Mayberry Cookbook." Very good and rich!
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 3⁄4-2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
- 1 cup cashews
- Grease a 9-inch square pan. In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the brown sugar. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the milk and continue cooking, stirring until the mixture boils. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
- Gradually add the confectioners' sugar until the mixture is of fudge consistency. Add the nuts. Spread in the prepared pan and cool.
I can't rate this, as I haven't yet made it, but by coincidence I am watching an episode of Andy Griffith in which Barney talks about sitting on the couch with Thelma Lou, "a pan of cashew fudge between us," watching a doctor show on TV. When I looked it up (I ADORE cashews), I ended up here!
I made 8 different types of fudge this Christmas and DH declared this was in his top 2. It was a great addition to my holiday fudge assortment that I gave to my co-workers!
I'm not much of a cook but made this fudge and it was great!
