I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Butter Pecan and Walnut Fudge

A creamy and nutty fudge that's easy to make and sets well.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/8 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Extra nuts to garnish

Line a 9 X 9" baking pan with parchment and set aside.

Mix butter, sugars, cream and salt together in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil on medium heat then set your timer for 5 minutes, stirring regularly.

Towards the end of the 5 minutes bring the heat up to medium high and put your thermometer in. Yes, use a thermometer. The thermometer is your friend. The fudge should reach a temperature of 116 C/ 240 F

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Add the icing sugar. It'll be lumpy at first, but keep beating until smooth. I used a whisk at this point.

Fold in the nuts and pour into your prepared pan. 
Gently press the nuts on top to garnish.

Allow to cool completely at room temperature before lifting the parchment lined fudge out of the pan and cutting it into squares. Store in the fridge.

Go on.....take a bite!
