Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Total Time

My mother in law always sends us various flavors of fudge for Christmas. The package can get prety expensive so she gave me the recipes so I could make them myself.


  1. Boil sugar and milk in a medium saucepan, stirring occasionally, to soft ball stage*, or about 236* on a candy thermometer.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour candy into a greased 8x8 inch pan and chill. Cut peanut butter fudge into squares when cool and firm.
  4. *To Test for Soft Ball Stage.
  5. A small amount of syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but is soft enough to flatten when picked up with fingers (234* to 240*).

Came out perfectly. I doubled the recipe and put it into a 9 x 13 pan. It has a fluffy texture, and light PB taste. I will definately make this again.
