A sweet family friend of ours, Mrs. Doris, was kind enough to share her grandmother’s Peanut Butter Fudge recipe. I’ve longed for a good peanut butter fudge recipe for years, and this one is it! It’s simple, creamy, and delicious…just what you want in a fudge recipe. I feel sure your guests would love a sample of this at your holiday gathering, don’t you? :)

Peanut Butter Fudge

3 cups granulated sugar

2 cups milk

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

Butter a 9×13″ baking dish and set aside. Butter sides of a 5-quart saucepan. Add sugar and milk to saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook to soft ball stage (this can be done using a candy thermometer for measuring the temperature). Remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until the mixture loses its gloss or until the peanut butter is completely melted. Pour mixture into prepared pan and allow to cool and set.
