Peanut Butter Fudge

This chewy sweet peanut butter fudge is easier to make and even easier to give away. Just a handful of ingredients and prep time before your enjoying this delicious fudge. Yum!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups sugar
  • 2 5-ounce cans evaporated milk (or 1 1/3 cups)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 7-ounce jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 cup finely chopped peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:

  • Line an 8×8-inch baking pan (about two inches deep) with foil and fold the foil over the edges. Butter the foil, then set the baking pan aside.
  • Butter or lightly grease the sides of a heavy three-quart saucepan, and then add the sugar, evaporated milk, and butter. Using a candy thermometer clipped to the side of the pan as measurement, cook and stir the mixture over medium-high heat until it reaches 236 degrees F (about 12 minutes).
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat (and remove the thermometer) and add the peanut butter, marshmallow crème, peanuts, and vanilla to the saucepan. Mix well.
  • Then, spread the fudge mixture into the foil-lined pan. Press into the pan and smooth the top, and let cool.
  • Then, cover tightly with foil or plastic wrap and let the fudge chill in the refrigerator for at least four hours.
  • Then simply cut into squares and enjoy.
