"Flying back from Hawaii this Thanksgiving - and sat by the nicest couple that shared their snacks and a recipe for fudge to die for! He asked me to call it Fat Pete's Fudge if I got it published in honor of him! Thanks to Fat Pete!"

This fudge was fantastic. My only regret was that I didn't find the recipe before Christmas. I followed the recipe exactly and the only thing I would change is add nuts next time. It did take more cooking time (about 30 minutes) but that could have been because my butter was cold from the fridg. I'll warn you...this makes a lot. I poured it into two 9x13 cookie sheets. The peanut butter addition really made this special. Everyone loved it and I will definitely make this again and again. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
This is easy but tastes just OK--nothing phenomenal. It didn't harden in an hour; it took overnight. Still looking for a really special fudge recipe.
I have tried all my life to make fudge. I have tried so many recipes and this is the only one I could get to work and it tastes great--my boys love it, I can't keep it in the house!!
This recipe was perfect. I made this fudge for Valentines day and it went over so well. Warning it makes a lot! Only change I made was adding a bit more chocolate (4 ounces more of the chocolate candy). AMAZING!
Very tasty! I'm a first time fudge maker, and a few things happened that I'm not sure were supposed to: 1) Because of the large quantities of ingredients in this recipe, I used my cheapo stock pot so I would have room to accomodate everything. Even though I turned the heat down to medium low and stirred constantly, my butter/milk kept scortching. 2) There was no way that after I had squished the fudge into the 13x9 pan, room temp peanut butter was going to incorporate itself into the fudge no matter how much knife swirling I did. I melted the peanut butter in the microwave, poured it over the top and then swirled it in. It tastes delightful upon initial sampling, and once I cut it up a little more, I'll let you know how it holds together
My husband, who is our resident kitchen disaster made this fudge himself and it turned out great!
This stuff is awesome! It is so easy to make compared to other candy recipes I've tried, it feels almost like cheating - I just made a half-batch in about 10 minutes yesterday while entertaining my 7 month old. I'm a bit of a fudge snob so I was surprised how good it is - really creamy. I made it without the peanut butter and it's still good - I used Hershey's and am going to try it with Ghirardelli next time since I'm guessing it might be even better - but awesome either way. Thanks Fat Pete!
If you like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, then this super easy fudge is for you! So smooth and delicious! I would rate this 10 if I could!!!
