All you need to do is boil it for 5 minutes, add a couple ingredients and then just let it harden for a couple of hours.

Banana Fudge yields between 36 and 42 servings, but of course this will vary depending on your personal slicing preferences.

Before starting to cook the fudge I greased an 8 x 8 inch baking pan.

Then I placed a medium sized sauce pan on the stove, added a half pound of butter and turned the heat to medium.

Next I measured in some evaporated milk and brown sugar.

I occasionally stirred these ingredients together until the butter had melted.  Once the butter melted I stirred it continuously until it started to bubble.

When it started to bubble I stopped stirring and allowed it to boil for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes I removed the fudge from the heat and poured it into a large Pyrex measuring cup.

Then I poured in some banana extract and gave a quick stir.

Adding the banana extract to the hot liquid.

Next I gradually added in 2 1/2 cups of icing sugar while I continued stirring.

I stopped stirring once the icing sugar was fully integrated into the fudge.  Crush as many icing sugar lumps as you can if you have not sifted it first.

I scraped the hot fudge into a greased 8 x 8 inch baking pan and allowed it to cool and harden for a couple of hours.

Once the fudge was hard I inverted it onto a cutting board. 

I flipped it again before cutting it into squares with a sharp knife.

This extra sweet fudge will remind you of those marshmallow banana candies from your childhood.  I know my Grandmother loved them even as an adult.

Banana Fudge is a smooth, creamy dessert that will melt in your mouth.

 It will be hard to eat just one piece!
