I have not tried this fudge. I'm posting this for safe keeping. I found this recipe in Taste Of Home Quick Cooking 2005. With a smooth texture and lots of nutty flavor, the fudge is sure to get smiles from peanut butter lovers of all ages. Note: Reduced fat or generic peanut butter is not recommended. I plan to use Splenda for baking in place of the sugar.
- In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, sour cream and salt; bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Uncover and cook over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 238 (soft ball stage).
- Remove from the heat; stir in peanut butter and vanilla. With a wooden spoon, beat until thick and creamy, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a buttered 8-inch square dish. Cool and cut into squares. Store in the refrigerator.
This is by far the very BEST peanut butter fudge I have ever made. It disappears in a hurry! I would, personally, give this recipe TEN STARS it's that good!
