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!

Fabulous! And a lovely change from regular chocolate fudge. I added 1 tablespoon light corn syrup with the brown sugar and butter, (I'm always afraid of a grainy texture in fudge), and used salted cashews. Sweet and salty and creamy! YUM! It just doesn't get any better! Only 5 pieces of this left after the neighbors left. I'll be adding this to my holiday treats. Thanks for a great, fast, and simple recipe, Sarah!
