Black Walnut Fudge Frosting
|Brown sugar||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs), packed|
|Granulated sugar||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Milk||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Corn syrup||1 1⁄2 Tablespoon|
|Vanilla extract||2 Teaspoon|
|Chopped black walnut meats||2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)|
|Light cream||2 Tablespoon|
1. Combine the sugars, salt, milk and syrup in a saucepan, bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil rapidly until the mixture reaches 234° to 238° F. (syrup forms a soft ball in cold water).
2. Remove the syrup from the heat, add the butter and cool without stirring.
3. Add the vanilla and beat with a spoon until the frosting is as thick and creamy as fudge.
4. Stir in the nuts. Add the cream, a teaspoonful at a time, beating until the frosting is the correct consistency to spread on a cake.
