This isn’t a Dream Dinners recipe, but I thought it looked delicious. If you’ve tried this recipe before, please share how it tasted.
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup half-and-half
2 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
2 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon light cornsyrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
Line an 8 by 8 by 2-inch square pan with aluminum foil. Butter the pan with 1 tablespoon of the butter. Butter the bottom and sides of a 2 quart heavy saucepan with 1 teaspoon of the butter. Combine the sugars, half-and-half, chocolates and corn syrup in the saucepan. Place over medium heat and cook until the mixture reaches a boil, stirring constantly. Carefully clip a candy thermometer to the side of the pan. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches the soft ball stage, (234 degrees F), about 10 minutes.
Remove from the heat and add the remaining butter and vanilla. Let the mixture stand, without stirring, for about 1 hour or until the mixture reaches 110 degrees F. Remove the candy thermometer. Using a wooden spoon, beat the mixture continuously until the mixture thickens. Add the nuts and continue to beat the mixture for about 10 minutes, or until very thick and looses shine. Spread the mixture in the prepared pan. Let the mixture set completely, preferably overnight. Carefully lift the foil from the pan and cut the fudge into individual squares.
