Summer. I always think I’m going to eat healthier and look amazing. And while I’m definitely more active in the summer….my diet gets sabotaged by nightly ice cream cones.

I can’t help it. I have zero will power. And I’m not normally a “snack in the evening” type of girl. But if my family is dishing out some ice cream…or we head out to the local froyo place, I’m game.

There are so many delicious flavors of ice cream, and I would say Pralines and Cream and Butter Pecan are two of my absolute favorites. Without a doubt, I love the sweet and creamy, buttery flavor mixed with the crunchy nuts.

So, as I was trying to come up with another candy recipe for you all, I was inspired by a recent trip for ice cream. A few months ago I made this White Chocolate Caramel Fudge. And my description of it was spot on to how I would describe the end of an ice cream sundae. You know, the melted vanilla cream with gobs of caramel in the bottom of the cup. That’s exactly how that fudge tastes.

Today’s Butter Pecan Fudge recipe is wonderful. The texture is closer to these Pecan Pralines, but the flavor is exactly what you would expect. Buttery. Nutty. Just perfect. And, like nearly every other fudge recipe I make, it’s easy. Which means, no candy thermometer required! One note about this fudge: I refrigerate it to get it to set up quicker, however, it’s best to let it come to room temperature when you want to slice it into pieces. Otherwise, if it’s too cold, it will begin to break into smaller shards. Which, if that happens, just toss it onto your ice cream sundae. See what I did there? 

So, tell me, what’s YOUR favorite ice cream? You know, in case I want to recreate it into a new fudge flavor!

    If I have to choose between those five pounds and the summer ice cream, the summer ice cream wins every time. Life is too short, ya know? And I choose fudge too. This is the best flavor!

    My favorite ice cream flavor has to be chocolate chip. Not the chunky kind and no “minty toothpaste”  flavor , either.  But I HAVE to have homemade magic shell and toasted pecans on top or its game over!  Who knew eating ice cream could be so complicated??!!

  3. Heavenly fudge in Cherokee, Close to The Smoky Mountains has the best fudge ever.

    Wow! Thanks so much for the recipe. It is fantastic, and the flavor is so rich. I’ve been making fudge for years, but only the kind that requires marshmallow fluff and chocolate chips (or peanut butter, white, etc.) This is so easy and simplistic in ingredients. Love!
