Brown Sugar Penuche Fudge
jump to the recipes
Penuche fudge is a creamy candy made with brown sugar, milk, butter, and sometimes chopped nuts (usually walnuts). It's named as such after the Mexican brown sugar called "panocha" which it is traditionally made with. In the US, if true panocha isn't available we often substitute with regular brown sugar, sometimes mixed with corn syrup.
It's made like other fudge recipes in that it's cooked to soft-ball stage and then beaten until it thickens. It can either be dropped on a cookie sheet to form individual pieces, or put in a pan where it's allowed to set and then cut into squares.
