  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine milk and sugar. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in margarine, peanut butter and vanilla. Quickly spread into a 9x13 inch dish. Allow to cool almost completely before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container.

I'm crushed. My first time making fudge and followed the recipe EXACLTY. Even got the fudge to the right temperature and it wouldn't set up. It's still runny. Any ideas what I did wrong?


I made a sugar-free version of this for my father-in-law who is diabetic. I used Splenda in place of the brown sugar. (I just used 1/2 the amount listed because Splenda is quite sweet). It was a great success! I am about to make a second batch.


I followed this recipie to the letter. I have made fudge in the past, tho it has been many years. The directions are not complete which leads to disaster. I let the concoction set for 2 hours and all I had to show for it was a pan of sludge. Now that I know what I need to do, I think I'll find a different recipie. You really should update your directions to be ALL inclusive instead of assuming everyone knows what to do. We don't, that is why we are here looking for help.
