Penucci--Brown Sugar Fudge

This is an old-fashioned brown-sugar fudge that my mother made every Christmas. It was only one of her famous “Christmas Candies,” but it was my favorite.

It’s not a shortcut, easy-does-it recipe, but it’s worth the effort.

Serves:

24-36 squares

Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Ingredients

2 c
sugar
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
12 oz
evaporated milk
1 Tbsp
corn syrup, light
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
6 Tbsp
butter (or margarine)
1 c
pecans, chopped (or nut of choice)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine milk, sugars, and corn syrup in a heavy saucepan. Cook slowly to a soft ball stage (or use a candy thermometer.)
2
Remove from the heat. Add butter and beat until it begins to thicken. (I usually let it cool awhile AFTER I add the butter before I begin to beat it. Otherwise, you’re just making your arm tired for nothing.)
3
Add vanilla. Continue beating until almost set. Add nuts.
4
Pour into greased pan and refrigerate until hard. Cut into squares.
