Butter Pecan Fudge

BUTTER PECAN FUDGE - this recipe is so easy. I can't get enough of this yummy fudge!

Butter pecan is one of my favorite flavors. I grew up eating it from as early as I can remember because it’s my Mama’s favorite flavor of ice cream. It’s a classic & oh so good. A while back, I made a Butter Pecan Layer Cake & it was one of the best things ever. (Seriously – like if you love butter pecan and cake… you need to go and make that. It’s full of yummy) Ever since making that cake, any recipe I see involving butter pecan makes me salivate.

So, when I came across a recipe in my latest Food Network magazine – I knew I had to make it. I followed the recipe exactly… to the T. Twice. Both times, let’s just say I had to soak my pot a lot. It was a mess. I wanted it to work so bad – but both batches failed terribly. What’s a girl to do? Google obviously. 😉 I found another recipe on allrecipes that had the exact same ingredients but different instructions. And you know what? It turned out perfectly. It turned out so good, I’ve made it 3 times since.
