Penuche is a fudge-like candy made from brown sugar, butter, and milk, using no flavorings except for vanilla.
1 8" x 8" pan
1/2 cup butter
2 1/4 cups brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups confectioners (powdered) sugar
Line an 8" x 8" square baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil at least 2" over edges of pan. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth. Pour into prepared baking pan.
