|Well, it's that time of year, again -- time to start making candy and treats for Christmas. I usually start with the fudge, buckeyes, and other candy before moving onto cookies a couple of weeks before the big day. Here's my favorite peanut butter fudge recipe.
Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge
This is a GREAT recipe. You cook the butter and sugar a certain amount of time, not to a temperature, so you don't need a candy thermometer. ENJOY!
4 c. white sugar
1 c. light brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
1 (12-oz.) can evaporated milk
1 (7-oz.) jar marshmallow creme
1 (16-oz.) jar peanut butter
1 t. vanilla extract
Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, brown sugar, butter, and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil for 7 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in marshmallow creme until well incorporated and melted. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Spread in prepared pan. Let cool before cutting into squares. NOTE: This is my absolutely favorite peanut fudge. It's even better than the regular marshmallow crème kind, and I think it's the brown sugar that makes the difference. The marshmallow crème kind is good, but this recipe is “richer.”
