A fabulous recipe for true PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE. I adapted from my aunt's recipe that called for chocolate. It has been a family favorite ever since. My Dad gives me the same Christmas Tin (huge) back every year so that I will fill it just for him!!


  1. Over medium-high heat stir milk and sugar together and bring to a boil.
  2. Bring milk and sugar to soft ball stage (234 degrees).
  3. When you drip some of the syrup into cold water it should form a soft ball in your fingers.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Add peanut butter, marshmallow cream, and vanilla.
  6. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  7. Pour mixture into a lightly greased (PAM works well) 13 x 9 pan.
  8. Allow to cool.
  9. Eat up!

I have my own peanut butter fudge recipe that I make every year at Christmas but this year I did not have all the ingredients on hand so I decided to try yours. Thanks to you I will never make mine again, your recipe is far better and the best peanut butter fudge I've ever had. I did'nt even want to put it on the cookie trays I give away because I wanted to keep it all for myself, but I did and it was all eaten up! Thank you I can't wait to make it again.

This was the best pb fudge recipe I have ever tried. All of my kids loved it, even my son who doesn't really like peanut butter. It was easy to make and i would definitely make it again.

This was the first time I made fudge using a candy thermometer so I was a little worried about getting it right. No trouble though - this fudge turned out great. I even experimented and substituted Splenda for half the sugar. It was smooth and creamy and tasted wonderful.
