Peanut butter fudge or chocolate fudge? Doesn't matter because this easy fudge recipe will let you make whichever one you like - or make both.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 5 pounds
  • 4½ Cups Sugar
  • 13 Ounces Evaporated Milk
  • 1⅓ Cup Creamy Peanut Butter (don't use natural peanut butter that needs to be stirred)
  • 7 Ounces Marshmallow Cream
  • ½ Pound Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Cups Chopped Walnuts (optional)
  1. Add the sugar and milk to a deep (at least 5 quart) heavy pot.
  2. Heat over medium high heat and bring to a boil (stir occasionally). You may have to adjust the heat to keep it from boiling over, but still boiling. Boil the mixture for 6 minutes. (You need to watch this because it WILL boil over if you're not paying attention to it.)
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and add the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Stir until everything is melted and mixed. The mixture will also firm up. Don't get discouraged while you're mixing it. It will all come together. It helps to mash the blobs of marshmallow while you're stirring.
  5. Pour the mixture into a well buttered 9" x 13" pan.
  6. Let cool to room temperature, then store overnight in the refrigerator if you like.
  7. Cut into cubes or bars.
You can very easily cut this recipe in half. Just pour the mixture into an 8" x 8" buttered pan instead of the larger pan.
