Penuche


My grandmother could really make candy. It's an art, I think. She had a repertoire full of different kinds of candy... butterscotch, fudge, coconut chocolates made with mashed potato. I was happy to find this recipe (in her own handwriting) for the fudge I like the most, penuche.

2 cups brown sugar
1 cup cream
2 T. butter
2 T. marshmallow
Nuts (optional)

Cook brown sugar and cream to soft ball stage and add butter and marshmallow.

I'm posting this recipe exactly as written. Consider yourselves lucky - this has more detail than most of her recipes.
