What's your favorite peanut butter fudge recipe?

Asked by Seek (34714points) May 14th, 2010

My aunt used to make out of this world peanut butter fudge. Unfortunately, I don’t have the recipe! I’m pretty sure it was just peanut butter, sugar, and butter, but I really don’t know.

I have a hankering for fudge, and I love cooking projects with my little one, so I just need a recipe. I asked the Google Gods, and there’s a lot of really sugary-sounding marshmallow based recipes (gag! I hate marshmallows), but that doesn’t sound right.

Do my fellow Flutherites have a trusted uber-yummy recipe for me?

Yeah, I saw that one during my google trip. It has a lot of reviews, and many of them claim it’s a weird texture and way too sugary. I’m amazed at how many 5-star reviews there are that also say they had to change the recipe to get a good result. You shouldn’t have to alter a 5-star recipe, folks. o.0

That’s why I was asking for personal recipes. I want to know something’s good before I waste good food on it. ^_^

You’re in luck! I just got my mother’s super awesome fudge recipe a few weeks ago. ::Drool::

Peanut butter fudge

2½ c sugar
½ stick butter or margarine
1 can evaporated milk, 5 oz (not sweetened condensed milk)
1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow fluff
¾ tsp salt
9 oz peanut butter (creamy or chunky)

Use at least a three quart saucepan to cook fudge.

Grease a 9” square pan with butter.

In saucepan, melt butter, whirling pan to spread butter up sides. Add next four ingredients. Stir over low heat until blended. Over medium heat, bring to full boil. Boil for five minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until well-blended. Turn into prepared pan and cool completely.

Makes 2½ pounds fudge.

My favorite recipe for any combination of peanut butter and chocolate or fudge would be “kindling”.

The cocoa fudge recipe on the Hershey cocoa can. Just use peanut butter in place of the butter.

@ubersiren I got clogged arteries from reading that:

Peanut butter fudge / aka fatsicles

2½ c sugar (ahem)
½ stick butter or margarine (oy)
1 can evaporated milk, 5 oz (not sweetened condensed milk) (who neds to sweeten after 2½ cups of sugar)
1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow fluff (for good measure)
¾ tsp salt (shouldn’t taste too sweet)
9 oz peanut butter (creamy or chunky) (i.e., smooth fat or chunky bites o’ fat)

Use at least a three quart saucepan to cook fudge.

Grease (yup, more fat) a 9” square pan with butter.

In saucepan, melt butter, whirling pan to spread butter up sides. Add next four ingredients. Stir over low heat until blended. Over medium heat, bring to full boil. Boil for five minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until well-blended. Turn into prepared pan and cool completely.

I’m just kidding. I’m not writing this, my auto-snarkmaster 2000 is.
I died from a heart attack minutes ago.

Ha ha ha ha!

I still haven’t made fudge with marshmallows in it. I’ll have to try it someday.

The fudge I ended up making was just peanut butter, confectionery sugar, and butter. I mixed up a little dark chocolate to spread on top, too. It was quite good!
