Directions

  1. Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish and set aside. Butter a 3 quart saucepan.
  2. Place buttered saucepan over medium heat, and combine sugar, evaporated milk and 1 cup butter within. 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.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and marshmallow creme. Beat vigorously until smooth. Pour quickly into prepared baking dish. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.

I finally found a peanut butter fudge that sets up!! If you don't have a thermometer, just boil (med-low heat) for 6 minutes after boiling begins. Also, 4 large marshmallows = 1 ounce. Cheaper than creme and works great !!

I have this recipe except it calls for 1 jar of peanut butter(18 ounces) and it is really good fudge. So easy to make. My advice is to have the baking dish lined with waxed paper or foil ready and have the marshmallow fluff, peanut butter and vanilla in the bowl so when you remove the milk/sugar mixture from the heat, you can just dump the fluff/peanut butter in the pan and get right to mixing it up quickly. You got to work fast and trying to scoop the fluff out of the jar is too time consuming.

GREAT FUDGE! I ALSO USE MARSHMELLOWS INSTEAD OF THE CREME. THEY ARE CHEAPER AND WORK JUST AS WELL. :-)))))
