Uncle Arthur's Chantilly Fudge

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lindas Busy Kitchen

My uncle loved to make sweets, and he made this fudge recipe that is one of the creamiest, sweetest, nuttiest "OUT OF THIS WORLD fudges I have ever tasted! I have never seen a recipe like this, and you probably haven't either... You simply have to try it to see what I mean :) I used to make special trips over to have a piece when I knew he was making it LOL

Piper Lee, did you let the candy thermometer touch the bottom of the pan, giving you a false temperature reading? (I ask because I have done that) <br/>I once had a 30-year-old candy thermometer go bad (imagine that) and ruin a batch of fudge, so before candy season, I calibrate its replacement in boiling water before using it, just in case. Boiling water is always 212 degrees Fahrenheit--so if your candy thermometer reads higher or lower, you can adjust your final cooking temperature accordingly.
