We have always like peanut butter fudge and my grandmother made the best. She sent (back in 1970) me her recipe and in it, she wrote to add enough canned milk to make the mix good and runny. This is where I never could get it right. So, when peanut butter chips came out I made mine like the chocolate fudge from the marshmallow creme jar, but add extra peanut butter. And now we have pb fudge for Christmas every year, since 1991.
