This is one of our favorite Christmas Candies- an alternative to traditional Chocolate fudge. It's Butter Pecan Fudge (without the Pecan's in this picture). My kids are funny about nuts so I make some with nuts and some without.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup pecan halves, toasted, and coarsely chopped
In a heavy saucepan, combine the butter, sugars, cream and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly!!!! Boil for 5 minutes (set a timer and sit there and stir, stir, stir!!)
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Stir in the powdered sugar and nuts. Spread in a square baking pan and refridgerate until hard. Cut into squares.
