Penuche Fudge

Penuche Fudge is pronounced like panucci in Italian. It is a fudge that is made with brown sugar, milk, butter and a bit of vanilla. There is no chocolate in this type of fudge. The brown sugar will offer a butterscotch and maple tone to the taste. New England loves the flavor of butterscotch and maple Penuche may be made with evaporated milk or nuts like walnuts or pecans. 

The south refers to penuche fudge as brown sugar fudge. Penuche can also be use do make frosting. Brown sugar made with its dark color and flavor due to the molasses content is what makes the difference. Molasses yields a spicier , richer flavor than regular white sugar.
