Penuche Fudge #recipe

Penuche is often considered by many to be a type of fudge. The truth is that it is a candy similar to fudge but does not host all the characteristics that fudge hold. Penuche is made up of brown sugar, butter, vanilla and milk. The brown sugar helps give the candy a maple like flavor. Penuche is popular in New England where nuts are also added to the candy. However, in the southern United States the candy is known simply as brown sugar fudge. 

  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
optional: 1 cup pecans or walnuts, coarsely chopped

  1. In a 3-quart saucepan combine both sugars and the milk and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, while stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking mixture, without stirring, until it reaches the soft-ball stage, 236F/113C degrees.
  2. Remove saucepan from the heat and add the butter and vanilla, but DO NOT STIR. Let the mixture cool without stirring until it reaches 110F/43C degrees, about 20 minutes.
  3. While the mixture is cooling, butter an 8-inch-square pan. Set aside.
  4. Once the mixture has cooled down, beat with a wooden spoon until the butter is fully incorporated and mixture starts to thicken.  Quickly pour the fudge into the buttered pan before it becomes too solid.
    ***If using optional 1 cup chopped nuts, quickly stir them into the fudge right before pouring into the prepared pan*** 
  5. Let cool completely before cutting into 1-inch squares. Store leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator.
