This is my all-time favorite recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge. It's from a church cookbook and once I tried it, I was hooked. I've made it for bake sales, family gatherings, and to give as gifts. It's the easiest fudge recipe I have and it tastes as good as it looks. Thank you Dora!
This fudge freezes very well. I usually cut it into small pieces before putting it into the freezer. Be sure to enclose it in an air-tight container or a freezer Ziploc before freezing. To thaw, leave it in the container for 20-30 minutes. Enjoy!
PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
3 cups white sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup smooth or chunky peanut butter
Line an 8" or 9" square pan with foil. Put sugar and milk in saucepan and cook over medium heat until boiling. Boil 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add peanut butter. Use electric mixer to beat fudge until thick*, then pour into foil-lined pan and cool. Invert pan onto cutting board, peel off foil. Cut into small pieces. Great for gift giving. Freezes well.
*The original recipe advised to "...beat until it fudges". I love that.
