This is a great recipe. I would highly recommend it. I like it because it calls for sweetened condensed milk and Marshmallow Cream. It turned out very well and did not take long to make. I did not add the walnuts but I think it would be good with them. I used crunchy peanut butter. I only used a 7 oz. jar of Marshmallow cream because it is all I had. Also I used one cup of granulated sugar and the rest of the sugar was powdered confectionery sugar, again because it is what I had on hand. I was worried because I had to make these substitutions that it may not turn out well but it did! It is really delicious. It has a wonderful flavor. The only thing is when you grease the pan it leaves the fudge just a little oily underneath so I dabbed it with a paper towel and it was fine.
Thanks for posting this! This is one of my favorite guilty pleasures! it is so similar to my g'ma's peanut butter fudge, but I'd recently misplaced her recipe. I believe her's used a little less sweetened condensed milk, so it wasn't as thick. For anyone else who wants to try this (which I highly recommend), I would suggest that you have all ingrediants ready to go before you start boiling the first 3 ingred. You have to move fast to get this fudge just right. And from my experience, you will have the first 3 ingred at a rolling boil for approximately 2 minutes, but definately use the water test as Lisa writes. thanks! yum!
