I have been looking for a Leche Quemada recipe for about 20 years now (like they make at Mi Tierra's in El Mercado (San Antonio) - and after trying this one, unfortunately I'm still looking. The taste and texture is wrong. It's tacky rather than sugary. This candy is shouldn't be quite the creamy texture of fudge, but drier, grainer and it shouldn't be sticky or tacky either like this is and leche quemada is much sweeter, too.
In our home this is called "Bob's Brown Sugar Fudge", I found the recipe in a Christmas magazine about 11 years ago and I tried it for my DH who can't have caffine, so no chocolate :-( which makes him feel deprived at times. It is really great (the few pieces I'm allowed) and really easy. The only problem I've had is when our old microwave died and we got a new more powerful (700 wats to 1200 wats)I burned the nuts a few times. This is now an annual must have.
This stuff is awesome!! I could eat the whole pan myself. Thanks for sharing.
