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....
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!
thank you for the R & R. Dorothy has the best recipes! Going to add to my favorites so I can make this.
Here is another review with some extra notes/tips...

Linda, its always nice to know someone is enjoying my recipes. You made my day!!
This truly is wonderful peanut butter fudge. It makes so much I always share it with my neighbors. I even have had a 14 year old boy stop me in the street to ask for the recipe!
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!!
