Twelve Baked Goods of Christmas - Recipe 2: Microwavable Fudge

This is the best fudge recipe I've come across. Of course, it's also the one that my mother makes, so that could be why :)

Ingredients:

3/4 cup butter, softened
2/3  cup  Carnation evaporated miilk
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups icing sugar
1  teaspoon vanilla
1/2   cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Instructions:

Mix butter, brown sugar and milk in large microwavable bowl.

Cook on high in the microwave for 10 minutes, stopping every two minutes to stir.

Let stand for 5 minutes.  Add icing sugar, vanilla and nuts and mix with electric mixer until smooth.  Pour into pan, let cool and enjoy!

Note: Make sure all measurements are exact for best results. Press down gently on brown sugar and icing sugar when measuring. Replace walnuts with crushed candy cane for a festive touch.
