Peanut Butter Candy

Linda James


This is our family's favorite candy recipe. It was given to me many years ago by a friend when we went on a bus trip to Branson, Missouri. She had made the fudge and brought it with her. It's just out of this world. I like it best with pecans or walnuts in it, but you can do what you choose. Enjoy!

How to Make Peanut Butter Candy


  • 1Butter the pan that the fudge will be cooked in, as well as a 9X13 inch pan.
  • 2Bring first 4 ingredients to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down.
  • 3Immediately reduce the heat to medium so there's a steady boil.
  • 4Cook 5 minutes stirring constantly.
  • 5Remove from heat and add the marshmallow creme, peanut butter, and vanilla. Add nuts if desired.
  • 6Stir well until the candy starts to set a little bit, and then put it in the buttered 9x13 inch pan. When completely cooled, cut into pieces. I store it in the fridge in a tupperware box.
