Say it with me, “Peh-noo-chee.” Or, do you call it brown sugar fudge? Mom always called it penuche but, some people call it brown sugar fudge and that describes it spot on. It is either a New England or a Southern delicacy and the origin of it is unclear.
You make it by heating sugar and milk to the soft ball stage, letting it cool briefly, and then beating it until it is smooth and creamy. Mom usually added chopped nuts walnuts but, that is optional.
