  1. In a heavy medium-sized pot, bring first four ingredients to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and stir frequently until candy thermometer reads 240 degrees, about 20-30 minutes.
  2. Pour into a metal bowl (a plastic one will melt) and add vanilla. Beat with electric mixer at medium speed. Add powdered sugar slowly and continue beating until fudge is thick and smooth, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add walnuts and stir with spoon. 
  4. Spread in an ungreased 8-inch square pan; refrigerate uncovered for about 30 minutes.
  5. Cut into small squares before serving.


  1. This was so delicious and got lots of compliments! I love that the recipe uses confectioner’s sugar and no marshmallows. Next time I make it I’m adding Amaretto instead of vanilla.

  2. The recipe calls for a “Metal Bowl”… will a “Glass Bowl” work?? I don’t have any “Metal Bowls”. This recipe looks really good and would like to give it a try, Thanks!! 🙂

  3. Yes a heat proof glass or Pyrex bowl will work. I usually don’t bother with the bowl. I just beat it in the pan I cooked it in.
