Watch the color of the fudge, it will actually change from a dark chocolate brown to a lighter brown just before it's done.
It will boil and bubble just keep stirring a wooden spoon is great as it doesn't get hot.
When the fudge changes color do a test. Stir the fudge the leave a small amount in the spoon, when you pour a small amount into your cokd water it should make round balls in the bottom of the glass. And splatters and it needs to cook longer, this is the secret to cooking perfect fudge. Once it is done and you get a good hard balls in the bottom of clean cold water, the fudge is just about ready. Cook 3 more minutes. Remove from heat. Add margarine, vanilla flavoring, mix until melted. Then add peanut butter, stir until completely melted. Pour into the buttered platter.
