Toasted pecans add a nutty crunch to this creamy buttery fudge. I have given this candy with its wonderful caramel flavor, as gifts at Christmastime and people always rave about it! -Pam Smith Alta Loma, California

This fudge is creamy and delicious. It is fairly easy to make, but a little crumbly to get out of the pan. It makes a wonderful gift. I recently made a batch for my cousin, who cannot eat chocolate, and I think she thought she was in heaven. This has been well liked, each time I have made it. It sold quickly at a recent church bake sale.
