Maple Walnut Fudge
1 cup light brown sugar
1(7 oz). jar Marshmallow Fluff
1 small can (5 oz.) evaporated milk
6 T. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 (11 oz.) pkg. white Chocolate Chips
2 tsp. maple flavoring
1 1/2 cups walnuts, coarsely chopped
Step 1: Line an 8 in. square pan with foil. Have the foil extend over the edges of the pan, so that it’s easy to lift out when the fudge is ready. Chop nuts, measure out white chocolate chips and maple flavoring and set aside.
Step 2: In a heavy saucepan, combine brown sugar, evaporated milk, marshmallow fluff, butter and salt. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Set timer and boil for five minutes, stirring constantly, then remove from heat.
Step 3: Add the bag of white chocolate chips and stir until melted.
Step 4: Stir in maple flavor and walnuts. Pour into prepared pan and smooth the top.
Refrigerate uncovered until set, about two hours or let sit on counter until completely set.
Step 5: When ready to cut lift block of fudge out by the foil edges, and cut into chunks. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container between layers of waxed paper. Will keep a week in the refrigerator.
