Peanut Butter Fudge

Thursday, October 18, 2012

 This was only my second time making peanut butter fudge.  Let me tell you, it was a much better experience than the first time I made it.  That might be due to the fact that, this time, I had an actual recipe.  Last time, my husband's grandmother gave me her verbal, vague version.  "Some peanut butter", I pretty sure was one of the things she told me.  Well, unfortunately for me, I wasn't able to figure out how much was "some" and my it ended up tasting more like straight peanut butter than fudge.  BUT now I can successfully make peanut butter fudge. 

I'm usually reluctant to try recipes I've had bad experiences with.  I tend to avoid them until I just have to make them.  In this case, I was dying for something sweet and quick.  I ended up making peanut butter fudge and no bake cookies. 
Estimated Prep & Cook Time:  15 minutes
Cool for an hour or so.

Ingredients & Supplies
  •  Pot
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla (optional/replaceable)
  • Baking pan or a plate to cool fudge
How To
  1. Combine sugar and milk in a pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Hold boil for 2.5 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter.
  4. Pour mix into greased pan and wait for it to cool.
It turned out great!  I'm going to try and reduce the sugar by about a 1/2 cup the next time I make it because it was just a tad sweeter than I'd like it.  Also, I used about a 1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter and 1/2 cup creamy.  I'm very proud of the results and will continue to make fudge as a quick, sweet craving quencher!
