Vanilla- Macadamia Nut Fudge
I tried this today and it was very good. Only thing was, I had sweet coconut milk and pecans, so that's what I used. It turned out great to me and everyone loved it. Living here in Glennville, Ga we have all the pecans anyone could eat. I have 25 trees! So I use pecans for most of my baking.
