Easy to make yes. Good peanut butter fudge. NO. I followed the recipe to the letter at first, but as I was mixing it. I noticed the color was almost white. What kind of peanut butter fudge is white?

I have made "quick, no mistake fudge" type fudges before and everytime I make a peanut butter one it actually LOOKS the color of peanut butter and is smooth and creamy.
I will not make this again. It was definitely NOT fudge. Candy, yes, FUDGE, no. As a "candy" it's not bad.

Anyone who has never made real fudge before though would not know this. Anyone looking for a true fudge recipe, this is not it.
I give this recipe 3 stars only because it wa
