Thanks for posting this! This is one of my favorite guilty pleasures! it is so similar to my g'ma's peanut butter fudge, but I'd recently misplaced her recipe. I believe her's used a little less sweetened condensed milk, so it wasn't as thick. For anyone else who wants to try this (which I highly recommend), I would suggest that you have all ingrediants ready to go before you start boiling the first 3 ingred. You have to move fast to get this fudge just right. And from my experience, you will have the first 3 ingred at a rolling boil for approximately 2 minutes, but definately use the water test as Lisa writes. thanks! yum!
