  1. Grease an 8 x 8 inch square pan.
  2. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat melt 1 cup of sugar, stirring constantly. Carefully add boiling water. Stir in remaining 2 cups of sugar, non-dairy creamer and salt. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a boil. Without stirring, heat to 242 to 248 degrees F (116 to 120 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a firm but pliable ball. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
  3. Beat mixture until it loses gloss. Immediately fold in grated orange peel and nuts and transfer to prepared pan. Chill for 2 hours, or until firm, before cutting.

Awesome fudge! I used french vanilla creamer, and omitted the orange peel and almonds. AND CAUTION!!!! when you add the boiling water it makes the sugar curl up and it spits back at you! I almost got burned!! It also takes time and patients but it was worth it, I'll be making somem more today!

Shocking, but I followed the recipe as written! Funny how everyone tweaks the thing then rates it....

This fudge tastes great! I substituted 1/2 cup milk powder + 1 cup water for the 1 cup of coffee creamer. The fudge seems a little grainy after setting, but even conventional fudge always turns out grainy for me so I'm pretty sure the problem is me, not the recipe. :) I wasn't sure whether to use untoasted almonds or to toast them....went with untoasted, and as I said above it turned out lovely. I'm sure using toasted nuts would be fine too. I found this recipe when I was looking for a candy recipe that I could make without chocolate or cocoa powder. This fudge is great because it doesn't require fancy ingredients; just stuff I ordinarily have on hand. (The only iffy ingredient would be almonds, but I'm sure other nuts than almonds would work, e.g. peanuts, pecans, walnuts, etc, or just omitting nuts altogether.)
