National Penuche Fudge Day

National Penuche Fudge Day is celebrated annually on July 22nd. Many people love this dessert, but do you know what its ingredients are? And you only need five ingredients – butter, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla. It is lighter than traditional fudge. A distinctive feature of the penuche dessert is a characteristic yellowish-brown hue, which is obtained as a result of brown sugar caramelization. A great addition to the treat is a cup of coffee.

The History

National Penuche Fudge Day is celebrated in England and many regions of America. It is common in Hawaii, and in Quebec they like to eat fudge on winter holidays. The process is quite simple – you need to mix brown sugar with butter and milk, then heat the mixture and allow to cool. During the cooling stage, you can add ingredients of your own taste to the fudge – nuts, maple syrup, or vanilla. Now you need to beat the fudge and wait for it to cool completely. Before serving, cut into pieces of arbitrary shape to make it more convenient.

Interesting Facts
