I really enjoyed this fudge, and it was especially great for a really quick-fix fudge treat, and nice to be able to make something that didn't require special ingredients or a candy thermometer! I skipped the nuts the first time, but won't agagin, and I think a little salt (1/2 tsp?) would also make it taste extra-good. Be sure to store in a tightly closed container, because it dries out pretty quickly otherwise. I'm about to make it again, and was tihnking of adding some coconut this time around. Thanks for posting this!
does not say when to put vanilla and nuts in. if your an candy maker, you'll automatically put them in after you boil, and just before you pour into pan. Beganners may have a probelume. just don't put vanilla in before boiling. vanilla may evaporate from the high heat.
Mine tasted like hard-packed brown sugar.
