    I can't begin this season without thinking of this wonderful recipe that I have been using for years in my gift bags that I give.  It is hands down the best candy recipe that I have gotten from this board..people always rave..and of course I have to give Dorothy all the credit.

     Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

    4 C. sugar

    1 C. brown sugar

    1/2 C. butter

    1 - 12 oz. can evaporated milk

    1 - 7 oz. jar marshmallow creme

    16 oz. peanut butter

    1 tsp. vanilla


    Grease a 9x13 pan. 

    In medium pan over medium heat combine sugar, brown sugar, butter and milk.

    Bring to a boil.  Stir constantly.  Boil for 7 minutes.

    Remove from heat, stir in marshmallow creme then peanut butter and vanilla.

    Spread into prepared pan.  Let cool and cut into squares.

    Thanks Beach_Bum for posting the fudge recipe.  I have been looking for another fudge recipe to make and send out to my brother besides my usual chocolate. I normally  just make cookies to send him, but this year, to change things up, I'm going to do homemade candies.  I'm sure the fudge will be a nice addition.

    Thanks BEACH_BUM for this recipe. My DH loves peanut butter fudge. After we do our travelling, I will have to make this one for him. latinrose

    This is the BEST PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE.....we LOVE it..

    So soft and creamy and makes a bunch....We usually end up making 2 batches, to hand out...

    This is a keeper for sure and always on our Christmas Eve buffet table....

    I use a pizza cutter to cut the pieces....

  • Re: Dorothy R's Peanut Butter Fudge

    Daryl, what a great review...I am not much of a fudge maker but I may give this a try.

    BTW, Christmas goodies at our house always include your cheese/broccoli dip...even the little ones dearly love it!


  • Re: Dorothy R's Peanut Butter Fudge

    thank you for the R & R.  Dorothy has the best recipes!  Going to add to my favorites so I can make this. Big Smile

    I tried this recipe for peanut butter fudge last night. SUPER easy and quick! I tried some this morning after it had set overnight and wow is it good! Not a super sweet and not overwhelming peanut butter taste! Just right! Thanks so much, I can't wait to put this on my goodie trays!

    This makes enough for the neighbors, the bus driver, the coach, the classroom teachers and even the grand parents. It's so good it's scary good -- that is our highest compliment!

    Dorothy R’s Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

    4 cups granulated sugar
    1 cup light brown sugar
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
    1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
    1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow crème
    1 (16- to 18-ounce) jar peanut butter
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    Grease a 9- by 13-inch baking dish with the wrapper from the stick of butter.

    In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, brown sugar, butter and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, and once it reaches a boil, boil for exactly 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Remove from heat; stir in marshmallow creme until well incorporated and melted; this will take a minute or two. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Pour into prepared pan and smooth top.
    Let cool on countertop for several hours or better yet, overnight.

    Cut into small pieces  with a pizza cutter...(8 long rows by 16 short rows).

    Store in tightly covered plastic container or an airtight tin.
    Makes 128 pieces.

    Ingredient notes: Use regular peanut butter in this recipe, not the old-fashioned or “natural” style. If you use unsalted butter, add a sprinkling of salt, too.

  • Re: Dorothy R's Peanut Butter Fudge

    Thanks for bumping this up. I love peanut butter fudge. Not a huge fan of peanut butter but I do love this fudge. It is made very much like my chocolate fudge but with peanut butter. Thanks, Dorothy.

    I've been looking at a lot of "new to me" peanut butter fudge recipes, this year, but hadn't had a chance to try any of them yet. Must have been fate, because, with all of the raves I'm seeing on this one, I'll give this one a try, first.

    Thanks for the post, Beach Bum!!
