Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 cups sugar
3/4 butter
2/3 cup canned evaporated milk
1 package (10 ounces) peanut butter chips, Resses' brand
3 tablespoons peanut butter, creamy kind
1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon vanilla


Stir together butter, sugar, and milk in heavy 3 quart saucepan.

Bring to full boil stirring constantly.

Boil 5 minutes over medium heat or until candy thermometer reaches 234 degrees, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.

Remove from heat.

Gradually stir in peanut butter and peanut butter chips until melted.

Add marshmallow creme and vanilla and mix until well blended.

Pour into greased with butter pan, 9"x13".

Cool at room temperture, cut into squares.

Makes about 3 pounds of candy.
