Mom's Blonde Peanut Fudge
Family Tested & Approved
evaporated milk (not condensed)
Combine sugar, butter, salt, milk and peanuts in a heavy medium sized saucepan.
Cook over medium heat until candy thermometer reads 238 degrees (soft ball stage).
Remove from heat, add marshmallows and vanilla.
Beat with a wooden spoon until candy holds it's shape. This part seems to take forever. You will think it isn't going to set but just give it time.
Pour into a buttered 11"x17"x1" pan.
Let set until firm. Cut and store in an airtight container.
This can be frozen and eaten right out of the freezer.
