  1. Butter an 8x8 inch square dish.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine brown sugar, white sugar, cream, corn syrup and salt. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Remove from heat and let cool without stirring until bottom of pan is lukewarm. Pour in vanilla and beat until creamy. Stir in nuts. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.

Awesome. I whipped it for 5 or so minutes on high speed after it was cooled a bit from the stove and that made all the difference.

I made this last night for a dinner party and it turned out perfectly. One of my guests even drew my aside at the end of the evening and asked for a piece to take home :) For those who had tro...

This is such an awesome recipe! I had tried other Penuche recipes which failed horribly, but this one was perfect! Kudos to Paula!

Awesome recipe!! My penuche came out light, fluffy and delicious. It tastes like it came from a candy store and was very easy to prepare. I allowed the mixture to cool to 115 degrees and whipped...

I was inspired by this recipe yesterday to use as the frosting for the caramel cake I was making. I increased the cream to 1 1/3 cups and cooked the mixture to 236F. I poured the penuche into ...
