Old-Fashioned Brown Sugar Fudge
This type of fudge is a demanding diva. But if you swoon over the icing on a caramel cake, this is the fudge for you. To make this candy turn out perfectly, follow the recipe carefully and trust your candy thermometer.

This classic candy is a testament to the talent of thrifty cooks who could craft sweet treats out of the inexpensive items that were readily available in most kitchens.
Saltine Cracker Toffee
