Mom's X-Rated Candy LOL


Brief Story:

All the time I was growing up at home my Mom made a homemade candy at Christmas that she called Pinoche.  We all loved it and bragged about it for years.  Then one day Mom was having her hair done in the Beauty Shop and she mentioned how much we all loved her Pinoche.  Well, the beauticians became hysterical with laughter and finally told Mom what the Spanish definition of Pinoche was.  My Mom freaked out and from that moment the Pinoche/Penuche became Brown Sugar Fudge.

I would like to share her recipe for the Holidays:

Moms Brown Sugar Candy (aka Penuche/Pinoche)

 

Ingredients:

 

One box of light brown sugar (2 cups firmly packed)

Two tablespoons of  oleo (margerine for you whipper snappers)

3/4  Cup of  sweet milk  (or the milk of your choice)

One teaspoon of vanilla extract

One tablespoon of  White Karo syrup or Corn Syrup

One Cup of chopped nuts (Texans prefer pecans)

 

Directions:

 

Bring Brown sugar, Karo, Milk and Margarine to a boil until itpasses the soft ball test

Then add Vanilla extract and Pecans

 

Beat by hand until creamy (this can be a learning experience)

 

Do not over beat or it will turn to sugarshouts Mom

 

When creamyjust pour onto wax paper allow to cool and cut in to squares.

Footnote: Mom says you have to beat all candy with aWooden spoon or it wont be any good------so use what ever kind of spoon you have---but dont tell Mom

Of all the Goodies during the Holidays, I looked forward to Mom's P? Oops, I mean Brown Sugar Fudge the most, even tho she could spread some Divinity and Fudge that made grown men fight for the last piece.

I made the first but not last batch today.

 

Wishing all of you the Merriest of Christmas' and may Peace reign over you and yours.

Emmett/Meller

HAHAHA, I know it sure snapped Mom's garter belt when she found out - - - the proper spelling is Penuche and it is sold under that name and sometimes even at the Cashier of Mexican Restaurants - - - there's Recipes all over the net with that name - - - - Maybe since it was so good they decided to name it Pinoche - - get it???

Bear, I must disagree with BR because it's not brittle at all but more like good fudge candy in texture. Also reminds you of Pralines a little but not as chewy. Dentures can handle it very well.
