    You got there in the end, at least! I, too, was surprised at how much trouble a simple little fudge recipe could give me. Candy making is rocket science, I totally agree! I’m truly hoping #fudgefail starts trending 🙂
    I’m really looking forward to next month! I’ve tried cheese before but only ricotta and mozzarella, so I’m excited to get stuck into something complicated. And then cross my fingers that there’s no hashtag #cheesefail 🙂

  2. Sorry about the penuche, I’m embarrassed to say I have no idea what it is! I’m jazzed about the cheese making, the only one I make is ricotta, I love making it, it’s so delicious and sooo easy to make.

  3. Shoot Carrie; I saw Kate’s and was anxious to see the original version…that brings back some great memories when my Grandma would make it every Christmas.

    But hey…I live at altitude and I know fail. And trying again…and knowing when to quit.

    But next month is cheese? I’ve made mozzarella and goat cheese and the goat cheese was both easy and divine. Once you source the milk that is! Better luck next time!

    • I don’t know how anyone bakes at altitude. One of my friends moved to Tahoe from Michigan and she said it’s been quite the challenge adjusting, though she is getting the hang of it now. You ladies are my heroes!

      Yup, cheese next month. Which I should probably get to work on. 😉 I’m thinking a nice chevre will be in order…

    Candy-making IS rocket science! lol. I give you credit for trying…twice! I’m sure next month will be a redemptive success. Can’t wait to join you!

    This is a poor recipe for panache. If done incorrectly it should turn rock hard, not crumble AND you don’t throw it out, you add more milk and remelt it. Then start the process again. The recipe you are using is updated but not better than the old fashioned kind. Let me know if you need my recipe which turns out every time. You do have to get it out of the pan quickly.

    • Thanks for the tips! It’s been quite a few years since I’ve tried to make this–it was part of a monthly challenge we used to have to try a new-to-us-recipe–so I’m not sure if I’d make it again, but I’ll keep that in mind.
