Extensive Definition

Penuche is a fudge flavor made from brown sugar, butter, and milk, using no flavorings except for vanilla. Penuche often has a tannish color to it and is lighter than regular fudge. It is formed by the caramelization of brown sugar, and thus its flavor is said to be reminiscent of caramel. Nuts, especially pecans, are often added to penuche used for texture, especially in the making of penuche candies. Other names for Penuche include Noochie and creamy praline fudge.
One penuch-style recipe is called "no bake penuche drop cookies", which involves using brown sugar, milk, butter, oats, and nuts to make.
