Marion's Maple Butternut Fudge

One of Marion’s popular holiday treats is this smooth, fine-grained candy. Use walnuts if butternuts aren’t available.


2 cups sugar
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup butternuts


Boil sugar, syrup, and milk together until mixture reaches 235 degrees F. Pour into bowl to cool. Add butter and stir until a grain shows in the fudge. Add nuts and pour quickly into a buttered 8-inch square pan.
