I Make peanut butter fudge for my supreme peanut butter fudge eater. In fact I had to watch when he was little because he would eat so much he would feel sick. He love anything peanut butter and this is one of his all-time faves. He like the creamy peanut butter but if you like crunchy then by all means use it. As you can see he has already samples it so I had to get a quick pic before it was all gone. Gus this is for you!
- 1 can carnation evaporated milk
- 3 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 peanut butter
- 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 8 X 8 square cake pan buttered
In a medium heavy bottom pan heat milk, sugar 240°f or soft ball stage. You have to stir the fudge the whole time it cooks so it doesn’t burn. This takes up to 20 minutes to reach this temp. depending on your stove and pan. You can also use the water method to test for soft ball stage. You just have a small glass with cold water in it and drop a few drops of the fudge in the water if it stays together in a little ball that when the water is poured off keeps it shape it’s ready. add the butter stir until melted the add the peanut butter, vanilla and salt and stir. Pour into the pan and let set until completely cool. Slice with a knife and serve. I like to use an off set spatula to remove the pieces without making a mess.
