Brown-Sugar Fudge! (or Penuche!)

Okay ... I know I probably shouldn't have, but I did. And I'm loving every, single, rich, delicious piece of it!
I made brown-sugar fudge!!! Have you ever eaten the Butterscotch Squares at See's Candies? One taste of those fabulous, melt-in-your-mouth pieces of candy and I'm done. I'm hooked. I can't stop myself from going back for another ... and another ... and yes, even another! It doesn't matter that my stomach feels queasy. I want MORE. The only thing that See's Butterscotch Squares have that my Brown-Sugar Fudge doesn't have is the chocolate on the outside. And that's quite all right, because it's what's INSIDE the chocolate that I crave!!!
Well, over the weekend, for no apparent reason, I just had a yen for Brown-Sugar Fudge. And yet, my plans were foiled every time I thought I had everything ready. Oops! No evaporated milk! Oops! I can't find my candy thermometer, etc., etc.
FINALLY, yesterday, I had everything ... okay, well, I didn't have the light corn syrup, only dark, but I was determined that would do. And, boy, did it ever!
You will find the recipe here.
I omitted the nuts, but they'd be very good, I think. Give it a try!!!

We make penuche, too! My husband and his family are crazy for it so I completely understand your uncontrollable desire for more.
