This recipe brings back lots of loving memories of my parents. Mom made this for my Dad for as long back as I can remember. Of all the candy that Mom made, this was his favorite.

How to Make Mom's Blonde Peanut Fudge

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine sugar, butter, salt, milk and peanuts in a heavy medium sized saucepan.
  • 2Cook over medium heat until candy thermometer reads 238 degrees (soft ball stage).

    Let set until firm. Cut and store in an airtight container.
  • 6This can be frozen and eaten right out of the freezer.
