Homemade sweet fudge

Ingredients:

  • 2
    cups
    light brown sugar
  • 5
    ounces
    evaporated milk
  • 1
    cup
    unsalted butter
  • 2
    cups
    powdered sugar
  • ½
    teaspoon
    vanilla extract
  • ½
    teaspoon
    maple flavoring
  • 1
    cup
    coarsely chopped walnuts

Directions:

  1. 1. Butter an 8x8-inch or 9x9-inch square pan. Line with parchment paper or foil, and butter that; set aside.
  2. 2. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, evaporated milk and butter. Bring to a full boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat slightly (no lower than medium-low) and boil for an additional 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. 3. Remove from the heat and stir in the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and maple flavoring. Transfer the mixture to a standing mixer (or use a hand mixer) and beat the fudge on medium speed until thick and glossy - about 3 minutes. Fold in the walnuts and pour the mixture into the prepared pan.
  4. 4. Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then cover tightly and refrigerate overnight. Slice the fudge into 1-inch squares and serve. (Fudge can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container.)
  5. Note: You can find the maple flavoring in the baking aisle where the vanilla extracts are.
