Debby's Vanilla Fudge
Why I Love This Recipe
My sister Debby gave me some of this fudge years ago and I HAD to have the recipe! Now I make it every Christmas season. It is so good I usually eat half the recipe myself! If you want to take the flavor over the top toast the walnuts first by placing in a glass bowl then zapping in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir, zap again, stir and zap again. Too much zapping will burn them so be careful!
Ingredients You'll Need
2 and 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c margarine (I haven't tried butter. Might be even better!)
