The holiday season always kicks my butt. However, as an early Christmas present to my blog readers, I thought I would share my yummy sour cream fudge recipe.
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
Optional: 1/4 cup chopped candied cherry and/or 1 cup chopped nuts
Combine all ingredients save vanilla and any optional mix-ins in a heavy two quart sauce pan. Bring to boil, stirring until sugar disolves. Boil to 236* (soft ball stage) WITHOUT STIRRING. Let stand fifteen minutes WITHOUT STIRRING. Seriously, don't even put a lid on it. Add vanilla, stir until it begins to loose it's gloss. Add cherries/nuts/whatever. (I made a fruitcake batch once. I was the only one who ate it.) Pour into buttered pan, cool and cut.
Happy Christmas early, everybody!
