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???
