    1. 1
      Grease a 9-inch cake pan and set aside.
    2. 2
      In a saucepan, combine sugars, salt, evap milk (substitute cream if you wish) and butter; cook over medium heat, stirring, until sugars dissolve.
    3. 3
      Continue cooking, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until mixture reaches the soft-ball stage (236F on a candy thermometer).
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and let cool, without stirring, until the bottom of the pan is lukewarm and you can touch it; the mixture will be about 110F on a candy thermometer.
    5. 5
      With a wooden spoon and a strong arm, beat until mixture loses its gloss, then quickly stir in the nuts and vanilla.
    6. 6
      Pour into prepared pan and when completely cool, cut into squares.
    7. 7
      Make 1-1/2 lbs fudge.

      Oh my God!! I have searched high and low for a recipe that was like my Grammy's and I have found it. This was easy to make and so amazing to eat. I put it on my cookie tray for a bit of a variation this year. You brought me back to my childhood. Thank you for the recipe!!!!

      I loved the flavor. My only problem was that the penuche never set. I beat it for an hour.

      The taste of this penuche is very good. However, my fudge was so crumbly that I couldn't cut it. It just fell apart. I know its something I've done and will try this recipe again. I wanted to include these in my holiday trays but somehow I messed thing up, will try again next year. But as I said before, the taste was spot on like I remember g'mas being like. Thank you for posting, its the recipe I want now I just need to perfect it......Stephanie
