I absolutely take no credit for this recipe. I found it floating around Facebook and it sounded so easy that I just HAD to try it. Guess what? It's not only easy, but it tastes delicious!

Mom always had trouble making any kind of fudge. It either didn't cook long enough & we ended up with "spoon candy" or it cooked too long & we had to let it melt in our mouths because we didn't want to damage our teeth. I guess Mom just never got the hang of testing a drop of candy in a glass of cold water. But we always loved the taste of yummy Peanut Butter Fudge. Like this easy recipe makes! =^..^=


2 c
1/2 c
1 tsp
vanilla extract
3/4 c
peanut butter

Directions Step-By-Step

Butter an 8 x 8" baking dish or any dish of similar size. I used a pie plate for this photo. Have all ingredients measured out before starting since you'll be stirring constantly once you start.
In a saucepan over MEDIUM heat, bring the sugar and milk to a boil, stirring constantly. Once it's bubbling all over, boil for EXACTLY 2 1/2 minutes. (I set the timer on the microwave. Really.)
Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla extract. Then stir in the peanut butter. Blend well, but quickly, until smooth.
Pour into buttered dish and smooth out. Cool before cutting into pieces.

When you let it cool do you cover it, or put it in the fridge?

I was trying to make a double batch and was wondering if the cook time changes or stays the same for the double batch?

wweeeellll... I am not a cook. Do not have milk in the house, we don't drink it, so used condensed milk.... and did not dilute it.... how do you get burnt sugar and peanut butter off wooden spoons and a pot? And the smell out of the house. Actually have a smoke cloud in the house. Wanted to surprise my husband and I think I did....
