Peanut Butter Fudge (easy)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by SwoR8193

This peanut butter fudge is made with 7 common kitchen ingredients. (Corn syrup might be an exception for some kitchens.) This is easy to make and it is smooth and creamy. I have been making it for years and it is great for fund raisers. You can use crunchy peanut butter but I prefer creamy.

I learned that I do not care for fudge that is predominantly sugar. It tasted more like peanut butter sugar crystals. Didn't cut well either. No one cared for. I would prefer a good creamy fudge recipe and use pb chips instead of choc. chips.
