- 3 cups sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
- 4 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
Combine the sugar, milk, and condensed milk in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Cook, stirring, to the soft-ball stage. Remove from the heat, and then add the pecans, butter, and vanilla. Beat until the mixture becomes thick. Pour into a buttered 9-x12-inch pan. Cool, and then cut into 1-inch squares.
* If you want to make chocolate fudge, use this same recipe, but add 1/2 cup cocoa powder when mixing the sugar, milk, and condensed milk. Makes about 2 dozen.
