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

"WAKIEKAT if you have to reduce the amount of confectioner sugar. I just made this I did 2 cups of everything I used and actual Heavy Cream (Creama Mexicana you can find it in places like save a lot, Winn-Dixie maybe WalMart but I'm not sure) the only thing I did different was reduce the amount of confectioner sugar and it came out solid but creamy and perfect... My family has got it just about gone. Happy Holidays Everyone"

"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."
