|Smooth, Creamy, and Melt in your mouth Maple Walnut Fudge now and for the Holiday's.|
First be aware of the size and intensity of the burners on your range. I cannot make candy on the big burner on my stove. It is a 13,000 BTU gas burner and it is plain too hot for candy making, even when I have used it turned down. I use a mid-range burner on medium heat. Use a pan with a heavy bottom not a thin bottom. Use a good candy thermometer. Measure and follow directions exactly.
I prefer pure cane sugar when candy making rather than beet sugar.

Line the pan with parchment paper and take the paper up the sides of the pan and fold it over the edges.
