    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.

    this is more of a granulated candy. I would in no way call this fudge.

    This came out delicious. It tasted like the brown sugar glaze when you fry ham. It was yummmmmy. Thank you for sharing.


Zaar...Wow, what a place! I'm one of the old timers of Zaar. I can't count the number of wonderful dishes I cooked in the past few years since joining. Along the way I have had the pleasure of meeting several Zaar chefs. Talk about your fruits and nuts! lol. I have enjoyed meeting them all. Family: What's to say...I have had the same sweet husband forever (Good thing....I'd hate to have to break a new one in...=) and live close to a couple of grown children. (Maybe you've met Smoke Alarm Jr. ..her brown rolls are sooo good!) Therefore, my family gets together often to enjoy each other's company and cooking. My greatest joy is six "little to tallerthanme" kids running around calling me Grammy. They wear me out! lol For the past thirty years I have been a Special Education teacher for grades 9-12 and love it. Took some time off last year to recovery from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. (Loved the radiation....I keep imagining that we are absolutely napalming the nasty cancer cells tohellandback to keep the little suckers from returning. =) My prognosis is good and now "I'm back in the saddle again". lol. Being a north country "gurl", I am happiest outside...walking, fishing, sitting in front of an outdoor fire or being on water (although in February it's a bit stiff....=0) When indoors I like to read, garden, knit, quilt and paint. During cold Maine weather I like to warm my feet on a very large ( 100 pounds of long legs and huge feet), sweet and furry golden retriever named Kerry (aka KTBRD: Kerry the big red . In the summer, the dawg and I round up the grandkids, hit the local dairy bar for a Mounds Sundae that is to die for!!!=0) . Then spend a lot of long and lazy summer days at camp . All in all...Boy, Life is good! =)
