Creamy, YES, however it is too creamy texture-wise. As in semi-firm-paste consistency. Even after setting up overnight, it is still not fudge-firm as I feel it should be. I made this with the intention of including it in goodies boxes to be shipped to family and friends, and that's just not going to happen with this recipe... I will keep them in the frige, and nibble far too many squares I'm sure, because flavor-wise it is DELICIOUS. I wish I would have used the other "easiest" recipe on this site, but don't want to use up a whole other jar of peanut butter to find out now. I have made many fudges in the past, so I don't think it was a novice-issue, and I took care to follow this recipe EXACTLY, btw, even setting a timer for the 7 min and stirring constantly! I think with less evap. milk and maybe a half stick of butter more you may get a firmer, and for me more desirable, consistency... even straight out of the frige this is sooooft... melt in your mouth, yes, but also in your hand, in the bag on the counter, etc. ***** Was actually able to salvage this... rolled the crumbly paste into balls, popped in the freezer for 30m and then followed the recipe for the chocolate part of Buckeye Balls, came out AWESOME--- like Reese's balls! But I'm not ammending my 3-star rating because as FUDGE, this failed for me. Just thought I'd mention the Buckeye Balls in case anyone else ends up where I did...
