This was my dad's favorite fudge. He has now passed. He would kid he needed some to make him better. I think of him every time I make it :-)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is easy to make and super yummy, but timing is very important in this peanut butter fudge recipe. If you go a second longer, the sugar can crystallize and you won't get a creamy texture. It's a decadent treat that's smooth and full of peanut butter flavor.
