Questions & Replies

  1. What type of milk should be used?


  1. Super yummy, and I got the comment a lot that it almost had a butterscotch taste to it. I also discovered it's delicious with pretzels hehe. I used Simply Jiff (lower sugar amounts) and it still was pretty sweet. Since I made some chocolate fudge (15304) I had to try them together and it was amazing. Oh and mixing in my lumpy confectioner's sugar was a pain in the butt. Maybe I should have sifted it first, because I had to use our little manual hand mixer to get it to mix in all the way. I hope no one else runs into that haha. It was worth it tho. Thanks for sharing :)
  2. Very tasty and very easy. Set up without any refrigeration. Based upon other's suggestions, I reduced brown sugar to 2 cups, powdered sugar to 3 cups, and upped peanut butter to a full cup. I also used heavy cream for the milk, since I had some extra in the fridge (that, or it would have been skim milk. Skim milk and fudge seem to be the antithesis of each other.) Thanks!
  3. YUM!!! I switched the brown sugar to 2 cups and upped the peanut butter to 1 full cup like others suggested. I felt like this came out a little dry-but I think that it was my fault. I wasn't paying allot of attention to the time after it started boiling. Hubby and my 14yr old son had the pan eaten in less then a day and are asking for more already!
  4. YUMMO! This is a great recipe! I love it! Very smooth and delish. I did use 2 c brown sugar, a scant cup of PB, 3 c of powd sugar then I added 1/2 pkg butterscotch chips. YUM!
  5. Wonderful! I too cut down on brown sugar and powdered sugar and increased peanut butter. Used a wisk and stirred constantly for 2 minutes at a rolling boil. Set up fine without putting in fridge. So easy and so good!


  1. This is the worst fudge I have ever made and I am the best making fudge there was way too much sugar three and a half or three and a quarter cups of white sugar it is terrible I will never make it again I have wasted my money and my time making this fudge it is terrible all dried up couldn't even get the sugar dissolved in what was in the pan the peanut butter in the butter way too much sugar for this recipe and I don't want to save it horrible
  2. I added 1/2 teaspoon salt with the peanut butter to help balance out the sweetness.
