- 1 package (3.4 ounces) cook-and-serve chocolate pudding mix
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- 1 tablespoon butter (no substitutes), softened
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- In a heavy saucepan, combine dry pudding mix, sugar, milk and butter. Bring to a boil; boil and stir until a candy thermometer reads 224°, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and beat rapidly for 1 minute. Add pecans; continue beating until mixture thickens slightly. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes. Yield: 3/4 pound (about 1-1/2 dozen).
Reviews forShortcut Fudge
"The fudge is very good. However, do NOT use waxed paper as it is not easily removed."
