Today I have a recipe for brown-sugar fudge, an almost too good to handle fudge. Almost. But it’s not and that’s what makes this fudge a personal favorite. And hopefully it will be one of your too!


This fudge is:
Sweet
Crumbly
Satisfying
Cold
Soft
Addictive
& Lick the Crumbs off the Plate Amazing


I’m sharing this recipe with you guys for 2 reasons!


  1. It’s f***ing amazing!  
  2. Every year at Christmas, my aunt makes this fudge, and I kid you not, it is always gone the next morning. Santa happened to eat it all. So in honor of those traditions, I thought it would be a perfect time to share with you one of the greatest brown sugar fudge recipe of all time.


Ingredients:
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp of evaporated milk
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter (cut into smaller pieces)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups confectioners sugar
  • Candy thermometer - can be picked up at Michaels for like $10


Instructions:
  • Combine the evaportaed milk, brown sugar, butter, and salt in a heavy sauce pan.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved
  • Reduce the heat and allow the mixture to simmer until it hits 238 Fahrenheit on the candy thermometer. This is the soft candy mark. This should take about 30-45 minutes.
  • Transfer to a heat-proof bowl.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat in the vanilla.
  • Add in the confectioners sugar a little at a time until you have a thick, smooth fudge.
  • Spread evenly on an 8-inch ungreased square baking pan.
  • Refrigerate uncovered for about 30 minutes.
  • Cut the fudge using a sharp knife.
  • ENJOY!


I hope you guys enjoy this recipe! It’s a Christmas favorite and I can never get enough of it. It does take a little time, but overall it’s not that much work! Let me know what you think of this recipe in the comments below and share a picture with us for a chance to be featured on social media!
