Aunt Hannah’s Foolproof Peanut Butter Fudge

Recipe by NanaRLL
READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 1 13x9 pan




  • Lightly butter or grease a 13x9 pan; set aside.
  • Measure out peanut butter, marshmallow creme and vanilla onto a large, lightly buttered or greased plate; set aside.
  • Place evaporated milk and sugar into a large heavy pot; stir until combined. Add butter or margarine and salt.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat while stirring; adjust heat until a consistent medium-boil is achieved. (You need to lower the heat if the bubbles are popping and spurting dangerously close to your hand while stirring.).
  • Boil 12 minutes (more or less), stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat; quickly add remaining ingredients and beat by hand until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour into prepared pan. Let cool. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Cover tightly with aluminum foil.
  • Note for subsequent batches: If your batch is less firm than you’d like, increase cooking time a minute or so. If it’s too firm, or becomes dry or crystal-ly when cooled, decrease cooking time or add more peanut butter.
