How to Make Penucci--Brown Sugar Fudge
- Combine milk, sugars, and corn syrup in a heavy saucepan. Cook slowly to a soft ball stage (or use a candy thermometer.)
- 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.)
- Add vanilla. Continue beating until almost set. Add nuts.
- Pour into greased pan and refrigerate until hard. Cut into squares.
