Brown-Sugar Fudge

Fudge in which brown sugar is used for the largest part of the sweetening is explained in the accompanying recipe. Peanuts are added, but if desired nuts of any other kind may be used.


  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup chopped peanuts


Mix the sugar, milk, and butter and boil until a soft ball will form in cold water or a temperature of 238 degrees is reached on the thermometer. Remove from the fire, add the vanilla, and cool until the heat is out of the mixture. Beat, and when the candy begins to grow creamy, add the chopped nuts. When sufficiently thick, pour into a buttered pan, cut, and serve.
