Works For Me Wednesday!
Sometimes making candy can be just too challenging. The candy thermometer has to actually work, the weather has to cooperate, the planets must be aligned, and the moon should be blue. This recipe is awesome and very forgiving. It always works for me.

Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Fudge

2 cups sugar
2/3 cup milk
2 Tbsp corn syrup
pinch of salt
2/3 cup peanut butter

Combine first four ingredients, and cook together until it reaches the soft ball stage. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter. Pour into buttered 8”x8” or 9”x9”. This will set up quickly.
Let cool, and cut into pieces.

Peanut butter can be smooth or chunky. You can use any kind of milk: whole, 2%, 1%, skim, even evaporated milk diluted with water. I used smooth peanut butter with 1% milk.

At the softball stage, this fudge is soft, but will hold a shape when cut. If you like your fudge a little firmer, cook it a little longer. My candy thermometer wasn’t working, so I cooked it over medium heat until the bubbles looked thicker and slower and not foamy. I was given this advice on a cooking board, and it worked great!

This recipe sounds wonderful! I'm going to share it with my SIL who loves to make fudge.

You know, I have a candy thermometer but it's still in it's original package and has never been used. What does that tell you? :)


I've done a WFMW Grocery Game post. Stop by and take a peek.

Oh, and thanks for stopping by to look at Snuggle Bug dressed as Tigger ! I do appreciate it!

Good grief, this sounds good. I have to ask you. What is 196 milk? Why don't I know that? This candy will be a big hit with my family!

I was so confused, but then I realized that my font must not be showing up correctly on everyone else's computer. On my screen it reads one percent milk. :o)
