    My father loves penuche fudge, so I made this today to give to him tomorrow for Father's. So far, not so good! Is this recipe missing ingredients - like corn syrup or white sugar??? I had it simmering on med/low heat for over an hour until it reached the required 236 degrees. I remember my grandmother testing the "soft ball" stage with a drop in cold water, which I tried. What I got was a greasy ring around the glass and sediment on the bottom. The taste and texture is not sugary and creamy like I expect from fudge. It is cooling in the fridge now - I am very disappointed so far.

    Absolutely fantastic, I used salted butter and skipped the salt, it came out delicious! Will definitely double this recipe next time, as when I poured it out into an 8x8 pan, it was barely a 1/4 inch thick!

    Hadn't had penuche in years and then had it on a recent trip to Solvang, CA. I was so happy to find a recipe on Martha Stewart. I made mine without nuts and it was creamy and delcious. The recipe was very easy. Thanks Martha!

    MIne did not work the first time, it separated because I cooked it too hot/too fast. I was exact about the medium low the second time and it was perfect!

    I'd been searching for a recipe that was similar to See's Candies' "Butterscotch Squares" -- this is it minus the chocolate covering! I LOVE this recipe. I just made up a batch to include in my annual Christmas candy gifting. And now, if you'll excuse me, I think I'll make another batch just for the house!
