This is a very sweet and creamy fudge. It reminds me of the fudge you get at the state fair. This is a recipe that I received from my wonderful mother-n-law. All my friends love this recipe and my chocolate fudge recipe. I give it away for Christmas gifts.
- mix the sugar and milk in a medium sauce pan.
- boil 4 minutes or until soft ball stage (I go by the soft ball stage on the candy thermometer) take off the stove add the vanilla, peanut butter, and butter mix well until smooth line a 9x13 baking dish with aluminum foil pour ingredients into pan and let cool.
- when completely cooled, cut into squares peel fudge from alum. foil. enjoy!
Very grainy and dissatisfying. I have made fudge several times in the past with no problems, but this fudge was anything but creamy. All I taste when I eat it is massive amounts of sugar grains. My roommate seems to enjoy it, however, so it can't be all bad. Still, this fudge is nowhere near what I expected. I will stick to recipes that include marshmallow cream from now on, as these are all I have used in the past (and these have all had the smooth, creamy texture I think of when I have fudge).
I have NEVER made fudge in my life, and this one was super easy and quick! I didn't have a candy thermometer so I timed the boiling, and kept a cup of cold water by my work area. It set up quick so I had to work fast to put it in the pan, but it tastes wonderful!! I'll be trying it again with chocolate instead of peanutbutter next time! Thanks for posting!!
I have always had trouble making fudge. This one was no different. But I think alot of time we don't take into account our thermometers. Mine turned out dry and set up instantly but when I tested my thermometer in water (heated water to a boil-knowing that 212F is boiling in this area). I found I was 12 degrees off. So before I blame the recipe I will either buy a new thermometer or calculate for the difference & try again. Thanks Aunt Dawn I bet I find it's fine next time but just so you know, hubby has already eaten half a pan of the other.
