Janet Breakfield, A Sweet Treat, and a Godiva Prize Back to Blog
Update: The Godiva Chocolate is going to…Joyce! Congrats!!
Ready for another great holiday recipe? This time, author Janet Breakfield is here to offer up a dish for readers–and one lucky commenter will win
So…are you in the mood for something sweet? (Heck, when am I not in the mood for that?) On to Janet’s post!!
Here’s a little something sweet for your holiday season!
A southern tradition around this time of year is “White Pecan Fudge”
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla or rum extract
1/4 cup candied cherries
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Combine sugar, sour cream, corn syrup, butter and salt in saucepan; bring to boil over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil, without stirring, to 236 degrees on candy thermometer, or until a little mixture dropped in cold water forms a ball. Remove from heat and let stand about 15 minutes; don not stir. Add flavoring and beat until mixture starts to lose its gloss, 8 or 9 minutes. Quickly stir in cherries and pecans; then pour into greased 8 x 8 inch utility dish. Cool; cut into squares. Makes about 1 1/2 pounds of candy.
Oh, Janet, I will!!! And since you offered a sweet recipe, I will go with a sweet theme–for this giveaway, one commenter will win a box of Godiva chocolate (that counts as sweet, right?) To enter the giveaway, tell Janet your favorite decadent treat…or you can leave her a question, too. All comments work!

About the story:
Wildlife photographer Olyvia Rayne has just learned of her Father’s death and must return to Pier Part, Louisiana to take care of his affairs. She hasn’t seen her father in over eleven years, having left the bayou with her Mother to live in Baton Rouge when she was fifteen. Now at twenty six, she hasn’t seen her high school friend Gunner Robichaux since she left. And he’s certainly changed. He’s now a tall, hot, mouth watering morsel. And he’s interested in her. Really interested to the point of obsession. But Oly is afraid to trust anyone. Especially a man she’s so attracted to. But Gunner has loved her all his life and will do anything to make her his.
