Recipe by Marlene.
I just got this from my sister today, who told me my Grandma used to make this. Posting in response to a request :) *cook time is fridge time *** Just in case you don't read the reviews of recipes, this is most definitely a soft fudge, it doesn't set up firm like typical fudge!

I am a bit torn about how many stars to give this recipe and can only settle on 4.5. Because I really want to make it again, it gets 5! I cut this recipe way down and did a test run to see how it would turn out. I had no trouble with the fudge setting up and yes it was still a bit sticky from in the fridge but not gooey and falling apart. I loved the soft, melt in your mouth texture but after a few bites the beautiful peanut butter taste seemed to get slightly overpowered by the sweetness of the sugar (and that's saying a lot coming from a sweet tooth like me) Since I like the texture of this fudge so much I am going to try maybe using more peanut butter to balance the sweetness of the sugar. I don't want to mess with the corn syrup amount as I am sure it has something to do with the lovely soft texture of this fudge but using less sugar may make this a sticky, gooey mess. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Definitely can't wait to make/enjoy it again. Edit: I made it again by upping the peanut butter and it really changed the texture. I think I will stick with the original recipe and cut the fudge smaller.
