    This is a very good fudge. The brown sugar and salted nuts are a nice pairing. Do add the powdered sugar very gradually. I actually had to make this recipe twice because the first time I added it too quickly (3 additions) and it was a mess. I would suggest at least six additions.

    I loved the taste. When I boiled it for the five minutes, the mixture turned much darker. I am wondering if that gave it a better taste. I will definitely make it again.

    Good texture. Didn't need to be refrigerated to "set-up". BUT the taste, there really wasn't any! VERY bland. Trying to think of ways to kick it up a notch
