I made fudge today! And I almost got it right. So almost it was almost painful. I did the stirring right, but while I was spooning it into the pan, I decided I should really be using my silicon spatula, I went to get it and when I came back, the stuff I had scooped was solidified and the stuff I hadn't scooped was darn near solidified!!

So NO pauses between stirring, mixing in the vanilla and nuts, and getting it into the pan, not even for a better implement of destruction!!

The stuff I DID manage to get into the pan is... fantastic. Wow. I never thought I'd ever be able to make my own fudge!! So it worked. The toasted pecans are a real treat, too. The sandy/pebbly stuff I managed to chip out of the pot is pretty good, too, but it's not fudge. Still, we'll all eat it.
