With 15 Grandkids I make fudge every Christmas. They all ask for Peanut Butter so I try different ways to make it. This is the newest for this year and the test batch came out delicious. It's a simple add to my traditional Peanut Butter recipe.

How To Make peanut butter and jelly fudge

  • 1
    Rub some of the butter on the sides of the saucepan to help prevent sticking. Add sugar, evaporated milk to saucepan. Heat over med-high heat, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth.
  • 2
    Insert a candy thermometer and continue to cook until it reaches a full boil. Continue stirring until it reaches soft ball stage, 235 degrees.
  • 3
    Remove from heat. Add Fluff, peanut butter and remaining butter. Stir throughly and pour into an 8x8 or "fudge" pan.
  • 4
    place dollops of jelly on top and run knife through to marble. Allow to set at least 2 hours or overnight. Cut and enjoy! HINT: I find that marshmallow "creme" tends to make a softer fudge. I did not care for the way it set, but if you prefer softer fudge then by all means use the creme instead of the Fluff.
