I’m going out to lunch today and I still have leftovers so no cooking today. Time to start making some gift candy though. My mother loves black walnuts and I have some in the freezer that I’m using to make her black walnut fudge. You can use any nut you like or leave it plain for those who don't care for nuts. This is a simple fudge that is microwaved. Only takes 3 minutes.
Microwave 3 Minute Black Walnut Fudge
1 lb. box confectioners sugar
½ cup cocoa
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup milk
1 tbs. vanilla
½ cup butter
1 cup chopped black walnuts
In 1 ½ quart microwavable casserole dish, stir your sugar, cocoa, salt, milk and vanilla together until partially blended (mixture will be too stiff to thoroughly blend all of dry ingredients). Put butter over top in center of dish.
Microwave at high 3 minutes, or until milk feels warm on bottom of dish. Stir vigorously until smooth. If all butter has not melted in cooking, it will as mixture is stirred.
Blend in nuts. Pour into 8 x 4 inch bread dish lined with waxed paper. This will give you a thicker fudge. Chill 1 hour in refrigerator. Pull the fudge out with the waxed paper and cut into squares.
Hope you have a wonderful day. Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
