This is not a true fudge but is so ridiculously easy to make that I had to post it! It also tastes wonderful if you like rich, sweet treats! After making Sam#3's Recipe#305332, I liked it so much that I had to try different variations on the recipe, and this is one that I really like! (Posted with permission). Cook time is chill time.
My MIL passed away this Friday night and I miss her already. ZAAR member Zurie told me to celebrate her life so I am posting her secret recipe for fudge which she passed on to me. What a joker! Although she was famous for her fudge we never caught on that it was the recipe on the back of the Fluff jar! So this reminds me of my MIL and I will miss her very, very much. I hope you try my Dear MIL's secret recipe for her famous fudge. Let me know how you like it! Here is a thread from Jacqueline in KY.
I found a similar recipe at another website, but I want to keep all the recipes I like and use in one place. Another note 1 lb of confectioner's sugar is equal to about 2 cups. You can use crunchy or creamy peanut butter depending on which you prefer.
This sounds yummy! You could probably leave out the cereal if you wanted and just layer the chocolate and peanut butter layers, or use dried fruit or nuts. I thought spreading the chocolate mix in a pan and swirling in the peanut butter mixture sounded good too.
I was searching for a peanut butter and jelly fudge recipe but couldn't find one. So i took a great peanut butter fudge recipe and added jelly to make a layered fudge. Basically it is peanut butter fudge with a jelly filling (layered). It may not sound good but i assure you it is delicious. Everyone that has tried it says it is great.
I looked forward to Grandma's fudge every Christmas, and for years I pictured her slaving over a hot stove making this from scratch. When she gave me the recipe, I was shocked at how easy it was. You can leave out the mint for plain fudge, and add toasted walnuts for nut fudge.
