If I’m being totally honest with you right now . . . I’ve always thought fudge was too sweet. That’s a crazy thing for me to say right now because the sweet tooth is super high on this one (this one being me). But I had never actually made it myself, and I had some marshmallow crème in the pantry that needed used up. So peanut butter fudge was made in my house, and guess what, I still think it’s too sweet. Delicious, but too sweet. Luckily, it was easy to make, and our Wednesday small group liked it so it all worked out.
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 cup peanut butter
1- 7 oz jar marshmallow creme
1 tsp vanilla
Combine sugar, butter, and evaporated milk in a heavy 2-1/2 quart saucepan. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Remove from heat. Add the peanut butter, stirring until melted.. Add marshmallow creme and vanilla; beat until well blended.
Spread in a buttered 9 x 13 x 2 – inch pan. Cool at room temperature, then refrigerate. Cut into squares when firm.
Even though I think fudge is too sweet, most people love it. like a lot. So this is gonna be one of those things that I make a lot for people at the holidays. and I can’t wait you guys. I can’t wait. What’s your favorite fudge recipe?
