Buttery brown sugar fudge filled with toasted pecans. A classic flavor you can't help but love!
Recipe type: Candy
Serves: 50 pieces
  • ½ cup butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  1. In a 350-degree oven, toast the chopped pecans for about 5 minutes. I like to place mine on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Once toasted, set aside.
  2. Prepare an 8x8 glass dish either with parchment paper or butter and set aside.
  3. Measure the powdered sugar in a small bowl and set near where you'll be cooking the fudge. Also set the vanilla there, ready to add quickly.
  4. In a 2-quart-sized saucepan, combine butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, whipping cream and salt.
  5. Heat mixture over medium heat, stirring regularly until it begins to boil.
  6. Once mixture comes to a full boil, set the timer for 5 minutes and stir constantly while it boils.
  7. When the 5 minutes are up, remove from heat and quickly stir in powdered sugar, vanilla, and pecans.
  8. Stir until smooth.
  9. Pour into prepared 8x8 dish and allow to cool at room temperature for 6-8 hours or longer before cutting.
  10. To store fudge, keep in an air tight container on the counter. If you want it to last for a few weeks, wrap in plastic wrap or an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  11. Enjoy!
