    Hey guys, I'm looking for perfect vanilla fudge to go along side a vanilla panna cotta w/ a berry coulis, but the only recipes I can find online, are said to be chewy, do you guys have any recipes for a soft, almost melt in your mouth fudge/caramel that would pair with panna cotta?

    This is a delicious old fashioned fudge. 

    Butter Fudge

    6 cups granulated (white) sugar

    2 sticks butter

    1 large can evaporated milk

    1 cup light corn syrup

    vanilla

    1 cup nuts

    On stove top, in a large saucepan, cook all ingredients together (except vanilla and nuts) to soft ball stage.

    Remove from heat and let cool a little; then beat until mixture starts to thicken. Add vanilla and nuts. Fudge should be creamy but firm.

    Variations

    If you want chocolate fudge, add 6 tablespoons cocoa to the sugar, or add 1/2 cup peanut butter if peanut butter fudge is desired.
