Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts toasted and cooled
  • 2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 12 oz can evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup butter 1 stick
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup English toffee bits divided

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the chopped walnuts in a single layer on a pan and toast for 6-8 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.
  • In a heavy bottomed saucepan melt together the brown sugar, evaporated milk, butter and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly then lower the heat to medium. Continue to cook until soft ball stage [238°F] stirring periodically to prevent sticking. This may take as long as 15 minutes, be patient and use a good candy thermometer, don't guess.
  • While the fudge is cooking liberally butter the bottom and sides of an 8 x 8 inch non-stick metal pan.
  • Remove the fudge from the heat and mix-in the toasted walnuts, miniature marshmallows and vanilla. Stir until the marshmallows have completely melted.
  • Add 1/2 cup English toffee bits. Mix well,
  • Pour into the buttered pan. Immediately sprinkle the remaining toffee bits on top gently pressing into the fudge.
  • Cool completely, then cut into squares.
