Brown Sugar Fudge

This is my Sister's recipe
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons evaporated milk.

2 cups packed light brown sugar.

1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons.

1/4 teaspoon salt.

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.

1 3/4 cups icing sugar.

Combine milk, brown sugar, butter, and salt in a 3-quart heavy saucepan and bring just to a boil over moderate heat,
stirring until sugar is dissolved.

Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently, until mixture registers 238°F on thermometer and a teaspoon of mixture dropped into a small bowl of cold water holds a soft ball when pressed between your fingers (this will take about 30 minutes).

Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Beat in vanilla with an electric mixer at medium speed, then add the icing sugar a little at a time, beating until fudge is thick and smooth, about 5 minutes.

Spread evenly in an ungreased 8-inch square baking pan. Refrigerate, uncovered, until firm enough to cut, about 30 minutes.
Cut fudge into 32 squares with a sharp paring knife.
