  • Remove saucepan from heat. Add butter and vanilla, but do not stir. Cool without stirring to 110 degrees F (about 45 minutes). Remove candy thermometer from saucepan. Carefully stir butter into cooked mixture to incorporate. Beat mixture vigorously with a wooden spoon until fudge becomes very thick (about 8 minutes total). Immediately spread fudge into prepared pan. Score into squares while warm. If desired, top each square with a nut piece. When candy is firm, use the foil to lift it out of pan. Cut into squares. Makes about 1 pound (32 servings).
