Perhaps that isn't such a bad thing ... is it?
Cook it, cool it, cut it and try not to eat it all in one sitting ...
2 cups brown sugar (not packed, not loose)
¾ cup evaporated milk
2 cups of icing sugar
½ cup of walnuts (optional)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
In medium saucepan mix brown sugar, evaporated milk and butter together. Cook over medium-low heat until mixture reaches full boil - stirring frequently. After perhaps 10 mins the mixture will start to thicken slightly. Begin to test it to see if it has reached the soft ball stage. Remove the pan from the heat and perform the following test. Test - drop 1/2 tsp or so into very cold tap water. Form into a ball with your fingers . If the ball loses shape and/or collapses when removed from the water it is ready. If it cannot form a ball put the pan back on the heat and keep cooking and testing every 1 -2 mins. ) Once it reaches the soft ball stage remove pot from heat and add icing sugar. Beat on low speed with an electric beater until the icing sugar is incorporated (1-2 mins).Pour into buttered or parchment lined 8" x 8" pan. Wrap your hand in plastic wrap and dab in butter lightly. Now lightly pat the fudge all over to smooth it down and make it 'level'. Cut and eat up.
