Butter Pecan Fudge is wonderfully buttery and creamy with little bits of crunchy toasted pecans. It’s perfect for when you’re craving fudge, but not something chocolate and it makes a wonderful holiday treat for gift giving.
Each December I look forward to making fudge more than anything else. I love how rich and sweet it is. Sometimes all it takes is one little bite to satisfy my sweet tooth.
The ingredients for this Butter Pecan Fudge are pretty basic: butter, both white and brown sugar, whipping cream, vanilla extract, confectioners’ sugar, and of course pecans.

Tips and Tricks for Recipe Success:
- Using high-quality white chocolate is key to this recipe being a success. It is the main ingredient, after all! I suggest using a premium brand like Lindt or Ghirardelli, which both melt great and don’t get grainy after setting. Whatever brand you use, just be sure you don’t use chocolate chips! Which are inferior in taste and texture for this recipe.
- Taste test your pecans to ensure they’re fresh. Nothing ruins a batch of butter pecan fudge like rancid nuts!
- This recipe is very sweet, so I don’t suggest skipping the salt, which helps balance it out.
- This fudge MUST chill for at least two hours. If you try to cut it before then, it will be gooey and likely too soft to slice. The good news? You can make this up to one week in advance and store it in the fridge.
