Oh wow...this does look like what I might be looking for....
Just to make sure I have it right....I DO stir the butter in, right? And then let it sit?

NO, don't stir in the butter just let it sit there and melt. If you stir fudge when its hot it will turn sugary on you.

Nonie, I made this last weekend and brought it to DD's last weekend. It is absolutely perfect fudge!!! I am embarrassed to tell you how much I personally ate! I encourage all of you to try this recipe. It is so simple and comes out perfectly.

This is absolutely the very best fudge, it is just creamy in your mouth not grainy at all...even though we beat it far too long. It is now spoon the crumbles. That is just something we have not figured out...when to stop? Perhaps when it lightens in color, rather than losing the shine. I welcome suggestions!

I can tell how fast it is going to firm up although I have missed my que a few times :D Just give it a good stir after it cools and if you see a dry streak, pour it right away. I love, love this fudge.
