Definitely a hit. My boyfriend loves fudge and peanut butter, and asked for me to make some for him. I tried this recipe and WOW it was so easy and tasty. I may have stirred it too much at the end, before pouring it in the pan, because it was very very stiff and didn't pour at all. I had to press it down with saran-wrap covered hands, and once it rested/cooled a bit, it was just great. Very tasty.
Great flavor for peanutbutter fudge! I cant wait to try making this with evaporated milk!
