Butter Pecan Fudge


  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1/2 c cane sugar
  • 1/2 c brown cane sugar
  • 1/2 c heavy whipping cream
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c powdered sugar
  • 1 c chopped pecans


  1. Measure out the powdered sugar and set it aside. The original recipe called for 2 cups but my fudge was dry.
  2. Grease an 8×8 inch pan or line with parchment paper.
  3. Combine butter, cane sugar, brown cane sugar, whipping cream & salt in a pot. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it boils and the bubbles don’t disappear when you stir.
  4. Boil the mixture for 5 minutes while constantly stirring.
  5. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix thoroughly, then add chopped pecans.
  6. Pour the fudge into a prepared pan and cool until room temperature.
