Can be made with or without the peanut butter, I always get rave reviews from this rather easy-to-make fudge, using ingredients you most likely have on hand. This recipe does requires a candy thermometer.
Without a thermometer: Drop a dribble of the boiling fudge into a small glass of cold water. Dip your fingers into the water and try to gather the syrup into a ball. If it easily forms a soft, chewy ball, its ready. If it falls apart in your fingers, cook it longer and try again. This method produces perfect fudge every time. If you don't cook it to "soft ball" stage, your fudge won't set. If this happens, scoop it back into the pan and cook it some more. - 17 May 2011
Used different ingredients. Dairy-free or Vegan You can use Nuttelex margarine instead of the butter, and soymilk instead of the milk. Works perfectly. Fabulous recipe! - 17 May 2011
Something else. Ooh, thanks for the tweak, it never occured to me to try it that way (me who is always subbing apple sauce for butter when I can). Thanks! - 30 Jul 2010
