Just like Grandma used to make. Amazing flavor! I used evaporated milk like my Grams instead of cream. The family was elated to taste this delicious fudge again. Perfect Penuche!
i had to make this twice. the first time it was gritty and fell apart, but i remelted it and added more cream and it turned out great
I have searched high and low for a Penuche recipe that comes close to that my father made when I was growing up. This is it! I also made a second batch and varied this recipe by adding maple extract and it tasted like maple sugar candy. My family has gone nuts over this recipe.
I made this w/ peanuts. It was very easy and quick. Tasty too. Pretty sweet though.
Just like Grandma's. I have been looking for this recipe forever. Thank you soooo much.
WAY too much brown sugar! Not too bad as far as taste but the texture was not fudge-like at all... It was very grainy and was basically a pan of sugar. Next time I'll try using less sugar and a little more butter.
I used fat free half-and-half and it turned out quite well -- not quite as creamy as I would have liked but this was possibly due to boiling or beating it too long.
This fudge came out so bad I had to throw the whole batch in the trash. It was still sugar/gritty after letting it cook to the right temp. Even the flavor was not that great, and it requires way too many nuts!
