Butter Pecan Fudge
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 10 min. + cooling
Makesabout 1-1/2 pounds (64 pieces)
With the buttery caramel flavor this fudge turned out perfect. We plan on giving this for gifts for Christmas!!
My first attempt was a flop. It cooled and then got to crumbly to do anything with. The second time I didn't wait for it to cool. I mixed the sugar and nuts in right away. When I cut it later it fell apart. My Marvelous Maple Fudge turned out fine. I will stick to that.
This is one of my new favorite fudge recipes! Going to make some adjustments on the next go-round. Will definitely not wait til it cools - it was a major headache because it became crumbly. Looked up same recipe with instructions to go ahead and add pecans and powdered sugar, without waiting for it cool down. ..still, delicious fudge!
I use all brown sugar when I make this cause I think it gives it a richer flavor. Recipe always turned out beautiful!!
Turned out very well and is sure to be a BIG hit this Christmas season!
I have 1 suggestion: toast the nuts first and don’t do anything else while they’re toasting. Otherwise you may burn them like I did.
I made this recipe and it was phenomenal! I followed the directions exactly, having bad fudge- making experiences in the past. You may need to adjust the powered sugar at the end. Add it slowly, and you may not need to use it all. When I noticed it was getting too crumbly, I stopped adding, and it came out perfectly.
I made this fudge today and it was a total flop! I followed the directions exactly and ended up with a hard, mixture in my pan. I had to scrape my All-Clad saucepan to get the glob out of the bottom after a very long soak. If you follow the directions as written, cooling the cooked mixture brings it to a point that it can no longer be stirred. I was totally disgusted by this recipe but was really interested in making a Butter Pecan Fudge Recipe. After searching on line, I found the same recipe, same ingredients, but with different directions. It worked.
This Butter Pecan Fudge was a big hit at my family reunion! Definitely will make this again!!
A new family favorite! I found it was a typical fudge recipe: you have to move fast getting from stove and pan. Mine came out perfectly.
