Mackinac Fudge

In Lee Bennings book, “Oh Fudge: A Celebration of America’s Favorite Candy” I discovered about the closest fudge to what I use to buy when we’d go to the  upper Mackinac Island,  Michigan. Here it is, and  be prepared for a treat!!

1/2 Cup milk, 1/2 cup butter. 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/8 tsp sa;t. 1 tspvanilla, 2 cup nuts (opt), 

Mix milk, butter, brown sugar granulated sugar, and salt in heavy pan. Cook at medium heat for exactly 6 minutes, stir constantly! Remove from heat. Add vanilly and concfectionary sugar. beat with mixure until smooth and thick. Add nuts if desired. Pur into buttered GLASS pan and freeze 20 minutes. Cut into pieces. Makes about 1 pound of fudge. If you want to make peanut butter fudge reduce butter to 1/4 cup, and add 1/2 cup peanut butter. If you want Chocolate Mackinac Fudge, add 1/2 cup cocoa with your confectioners sugar. PERFECT HEAVEN!
