I saw one on America's Test Kitchen but it was chocolate and I can't reach the recipe (paywall.) My local orchard has fudge. I wanted chocolate, but they were out so I got butterscotch. It was soooo good. The next time I went, I got chocolate. Eh, it was good, but the butterscotch was so much better. Sorry I couldn't help. I'll be watching this space!

Here's a simple recipe for vanilla fudge using brown sugar. It's a classic fudge recipe that's easy to make and doesn't require chocolate. You can also customize it with your favorite add-ins like nuts or flavored extracts.


    2 cups brown sugar
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/2 cup unsalted butter
    1/4 cup light corn syrup
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    A pinch of salt


    Prepare the Pan:
        Line an 8x8-inch (20x20 cm) square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides for easy removal of the fudge.

    Combine Ingredients:
        In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine both sugars, heavy cream, butter, corn syrup, and a pinch of salt.

    Cook and Stir:
        Over medium heat, stir the mixture constantly until the sugars are dissolved and the butter is melted.

    Bring to a Boil:
        Once the sugar is dissolved, attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pan. Cook the mixture, stirring occasionally, until it reaches the soft-ball stage, which is around 238-240įF (114-116įC). This can take 20-30 minutes.

    Remove from Heat:
        Once it reaches the soft-ball stage, remove the pan from the heat.

    Add Vanilla:
        Stir in the vanilla extract.

    Beat the Mixture:
        Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then beat it with a wooden spoon or an electric mixer until it thickens and loses its gloss. This may take about 5-10 minutes.

    Transfer to the Pan:
        Quickly transfer the fudge into the prepared baking pan and smooth it out evenly.

    Cool and Set:
        Let the fudge cool at room temperature for a few hours or in the refrigerator for faster setting.

    Cut into Squares:
        Once the fudge is set, use the parchment paper overhangs to lift it out of the pan. Place it on a cutting board and cut it into small squares.

        Your vanilla fudge is ready to enjoy!
