A Little Thanksgiving Treat
Blessings to You this Thanksgiving Day!

My Mum's Delicious Fudge!

A few of you asked for my mum's penuche fudge recipe and here it is! This is the mostChristmas_rose scrumptious confection - tender, soft and sweet. Wonderful as a holiday gift and heavenly with a cold glass of milk! The first time I read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe I was positive Turkish Delight must taste just like my mother's fudge.

My mum has made a batch for Thanksgiving and I can hardly wait to sample it! I'll take a picture tomorrow so I can show you how creamy and golden it looks. :)

Mum's Penuche

  • 1 lb. light brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup white sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup nuts (optional - we never do nuts)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon marshmallow fluff
  • 1 tablespoon butter (softened)

Combine the sugar, salt and milk in a pan. Stir very gently, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium low and boil for 14 minutes. At this point, test for the "soft ball" stage, by dropping a bit of the hot mixture into a measuring cup filled with cold water. Now, add the vanilla, fluff and butter. Beat well by hand until the mixture thickens. Spread in an 8" square or 9x13" pan and let set. Let it cool for a bit, then cut into pieces with a knife.

If you are giving this as a gift, do yourself a favor, and save a few of the edges for yourself! (The crumbs are fabulous over vanilla ice cream!)
