Lightly toast the walnuts for about 6-8 minutes. Watch closely, don’t burn.
Remove the walnuts from the oven and set them aside to cool.
Now, line another large baking pan with parchment paper for pouring the fudge onto. You can use the same one if you pour the toasted walnuts into a bowl to cool.
Combine butter, evaporated milk, sugar, and salt in a large saucepan.
Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly, over medium heat.
Boil, stirring constantly, for 4½ to 5 minutes.
