Can you use brown sugar to make fudge?

A foolproof recipe for Penuche Fudge! It only takes a few minutes to put together this easy brown sugar fudge. It’s similar to my favorite Chocolate Fudge recipe, but instead uses brown sugar and white chocolate. The texture of this fudge is where it’s at!

Why is my brown sugar fudge grainy?

A lot of big crystals in fudge makes it grainy. By letting the fudge cool without stirring, you avoid creating seed crystals. Stirring would help sucrose molecules “find” one another and start forming crystals.

Can I substitute cream for evaporated milk in fudge?

Ditto for cream—again, the fattier liquid will make the recipe turn out richer than if you’d used evaporated milk, but it won’t be bad. If you happen to have both cream and regular milk on hand, mix together half cream and half milk and use that as a substitute.

What would be a good substitute for evaporated milk?

There are a number of good dairy options for replacing evaporated milk, including regular milk, lactose-free milk, cream, half and half and powdered milk.

Can brown sugar be used instead of white sugar in fudge?

Do not substitute the brown sugar with white sugar. Likewise, don’t substitute turbinado or demerara (natural brown sugars usually sold as “raw sugar”); they have larger crystals and won’t melt down the way conventional brown sugar would so it will affect the outcome of the recipe.

What can I use instead of milk?

Best substitutes for milk

  • Yogurt: Yogurt is thicker than milk.
  • Sour cream: Use the same notes as yogurt.
  • Heavy cream: Cream has much more milk fat than milk.
  • Half and half: Also has more fat than milk.
  • Water: If the recipe calls for a small amount of milk like ¼ cup or less, water could work.
