Add the sugar and stir until all of the sugar has dissolved. Fold the applesauce into the mixture thoroughly. Add the eggs one at a time being sure to mix well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla and continue mixing until all the ingredients have been incorporated together well. Slowly add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture being sure to mix well as you add. Gently fold in the nuts. Place the oven temperature at 350 degrees and allow the oven to preheat. Butter the bottom and sides of a square baking pan well.

This can cause your fudge not to firm as necessary.
