This Creamy Maple Nut Fudge is a breeze to make! Crunchy toasted walnuts add amazing texture and flavor to this decadent fudge!
You guys are ready for more fudge right? Now that you’ve made Peanut Butter Candy Bar Fudge and used up all your leftover Halloween candy, we’re ready to move on to more holiday type fudge.
Maple is pretty much my most favorite thing EVER. I’ll take it any way I can get it and fudge is certainly my preferred method for satisfying my maple cravings.
The flavor in this fudge is intensified by the toasted walnuts. Yep. Toasted. It’s kinda an essential part of the recipe for my family (allergies to raw walnuts run rampant) and it does amazing things for the flavor
After my recent trip with Diamond of California, you could say I have walnuts on the brain :)
A couple of weeks ago Diamond of California invited me to tour their walnut orchards during harvesting. I was able to see the entire process from the tree shaking to the packaging of the nuts. I have to admit I was totally giddy with excitement. I’m such a nerd.
I was so impressed with the entire operation and learned SO much about walnuts – I’m totally an expert now ;) I had the most amazing time with the fantastic group of bloggers that went on the trip so make sure to go check them out!
Now I’ve got nuts on the brain so except so more yummy, nutty recipes soon!
