Sorry, this one didn't really work for me as a fudge. It never set firm enough and it had more of a caramel look and consistency with a just a mild peanut butter taste. I did manage to salvage it however by rolling it in chopped dry roasted peanuts and making small log shapes...taste like a payday...mmmmm. So, while this didn't work out for a fudge for me, I do like the payday I ended up with. I did use reduced fat peanut butter and canned evaporated milk, so that could've been the reason it didn't set???
Ok Kimberly, your right!! This is the best Peanut Butter Fudge we ever had! Thank you very much for fantastic recipe! This one will be used for years here..
