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.

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)

How to Make Penucci--Brown Sugar Fudge

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.
