Peanut Butter Fudge

Perfect fudgey peanut butter, it doesn’t last long! This is an old family recipe, spanning back three generations!

What you will need:

  • A large pot (6 quarts or larger)
  • Wooden spoon
  • Candy Thermometer (optional)
  • 2 quart, 8″ x 11″ pan


4 cups sugar
4 cups milk
slightly less than 1/2 a lb of peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla
Cooking spray or shortening (to grease 8″ x 11″ pan)

Tip: You can use either smooth or crunchy peanut butter! We used crunchy!

Tip: If you rest the wooden spoon across the top of pot, it helps prevent the candy from boiling over

How to make it:

  1. Grease 8″ x 11″ pan
  2. Put sugar and milk in large pot
  3. Cook over medium until softball stage (240 degrees on candy thermometer) is achieved. This can take a while. (No candy thermometer? Follow steps at bottom of recipe to test candy for correct temperature!)
  4. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla
  5. Mix until smooth
  6. Pour into 8″ x 11″ pan.
  7. Let cool.

Refrigeration is recommended.

To test for correct temperature without candy thermometer:

Take cup of very cold water and drop a small amount of candy into water. Candy is correct temperature when you can pick it up, but it flattens.
