The Wikipedia definition says: Penuche (Italian: panucci) is a fudge-like candy made from brown sugar, butter, andmilk, using no flavorings except for vanilla. Penuche often has a tannish color, and is lighter than regular fudge.
I really didn't want any because the pieces were so thick and it looked super sweet (got a toothache just looking at it) but the kids and I were really intrigued with how it was made. We decided to document its cooling and forming process. Its pretty cool. Check it out:
|Sign and Pricing Board (its definitely not cheap)|
|Marble table and frame for mixing the hot fudge|
|Penuche being mixed as it cools|
|Shaping process while cooling down|
|Cooled and Shaped fudge is cut in thick slices for purchase|
|Finished product in the case waiting for hungry families.|
