    In the butter pecan fudge recipe, you didn’t say what to do with brown sugar.

      Hi Brenda. Looks like someone forgot to proofread the recipe. The brown sugar should be boiled along with those other ingredients. I wish they gave a more exact time and/or temperature to boil, also. “…for more than four minutes” is pretty nonspecific. LOL.
