Absolutely the best peanut butter fudge I've ever made. My Mom, who is a fudge expert, thought it was better than her favorite recipe, and that's saying something! This fudge is very creamy and has a nice peanut butter flavor. This fudge is easy to make and would make a great recipe for someone who has never made fudge before. I plan to make this every Christmas.
Did not come out great. Made two batches--first one was tasty but didn't look smooth. Second batch was crumbly. Followed the directions and was disappointed. Read the reviews prior to trying it so I was surprised at the results. Really don't like this recipe much at all. Some of the reviews mentioned that they had been using it for years--interesting because Jif Reduced Fat Spread hasn't been on the market for years.???
I gave this recipe 4 stars because it has a great basic flavor. I do not think I would make it the same exact way again. Next time I will use way less sugar and see how that goes. I might even cut it down to 2 cups. The fudge was far too sweet. I'll update this with the results next time I make it. I have decreased sugar in other fudge recipes with positive results, so I doubt this will be a problem. Also, some of the sugar still seemed to be crystallized, although the fudge set perfectly. Anyone know what causes this?
This is a simple, foolproof recipe.
This is yummy and makes up just like the recipe says. I used regular peanut butter. I cooked this to "fudge" temperature on a thermometer and it took exactly 5 minutes.
I received this recipe from a friend in 1983. Every time I make it I receive requests for the recipe and great praise. This is truly a "You can't eat just one! kind of a fudge!!
This was yummy and very easy to make. The firmness is perfect, and the consistency is very near so. I detect just a tiny bit of "grainyness". It is very similar to the PB fudge my dad used to fix. I wonder if using regular PB instead of reduced fat would make it even more peanut buttery. I've tried the Aunt Teen's choc fudge 3 times and came up with a hard crumbly mess each time, so I'm glad to see that this came out great. I suspect it may have something to do with adding the marshmallow creme AFTER boiling the mixture.
I followed the recipe, every detail. It did not turn out as I expected. When I let the mixture boil for 5 minutes and then took it off to stir in the peanut butter, it started getting chunky and then I stirred in the marshmallow, it got a little better. Tastes good, just looks bad.
