Peanut Butter Fudge

Busy!  Everyone lives a busy life!  Am always on the lookout for tasty, easy recipes.  Mother makes this fudge and it is always a hit!  It is tasty, quick and only has four ingredients.

Peanut Butter Fudge

2 cups white granulated sugar
5 ounces of evaporated milk
1 cup of peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

  • sift sugar
  • combine sugar and evaporated milk in a heavy sauce pan (I use my iron skillet)
  • over low to medium heat,  cook sugar and evaporated milk mixture until soft ball stage (soft ball means a soft ball will form when dropped into cold water)
  • when sugar and milk have reached soft ball stage, turn off the heat, add one cup of peanut butter and vanilla and mix well
  • pour fudge into greased 8 x 8 pan
  • cool and cut into one inches pieces
Tip from Mother--make fudge on a day with low humidity.  The fudge will be creamy.
