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


  1. Butter the pan that the fudge will be cooked in, as well as a 9X13 inch pan.
  2. Bring first 4 ingredients to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down.
  3. Immediately reduce the heat to medium so there's a steady boil.
  4. Cook 5 minutes stirring constantly.
  5. Remove from heat and add the marshmallow creme, peanut butter, and vanilla. Add nuts if desired.
  6. Stir 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.
