Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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).
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.

"The fudge is very good. However, do NOT use waxed paper as it is not easily removed."
