2 large cans evaporated milk 5 1/2 cups sugar 5 1/2 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup brown sugar
Mix milk, sugar, butter and salt in a large heavy pan and bring to boil.
Add brown sugar and stir until it dissolves. Continue cooking and stirring mixture over medium heat until it reaches soft ball stage. Stir until thick enough (as for fudge). Drop by teaspoonful on a buttered pan or waxed paper or pour into buttered pan and cut into squares.
The recipe didn't give a final temp to cook the candy to, so mine ended up being a thick caramel instead of solid candy. I've never made fudge, so I don't know how thick it was supposed to be before pouring it into the pan. I'm sure it won't go to waste, but I'm disappointed that it didn't turn out right.
