I think this is the best batch of peanut butter fudge I've ever made! Be it the recipe, the candy thermometer, whatever it was, I'm marking the recipe, page and cookbook as a reminder for the next time.
This recipe is actually from the same cookbook as the divinity.....and was submitted by Joy Beard.
Easy Peanut Butter Fudge
4 cups sugar
1 can evaporated milk (not sweetened)
1 stick margarine (not soft type) (I used butter)
18 ounce jar peanut butter (I had 16 oz)
1 small jar marshmallow cream
Cook first three ingredients 9 minutes or until it coats spoon or makes soft ball. (I used a thermometer and cooked to soft ball temperature then this is when I removed from heat) Add peanut butter and marshmallow cream. Mix well, pour in pan (I buttered the pan) with edges as it's soft at this stage. Surface will appear slightly greasy until it sets. Allow to set 2-3 hours then cut into squares to serve.
