    NanaRLL's Note:

    Creamy. Soft. Peanut Buttery. My sister-in-law gave me this recipe nearly 30 years ago, and my family and friends have insisted that I make multiple batches of it during the Holidays ever since. They’ve been known to monitor the amount they each receive in goodie packages, and to actually fight over it. I usually omit the nuts, so that the creamy, melt in your mouth texture isn’t hindered.

    My Private Note



    13x9 pan

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Lightly butter or grease a 13x9 pan; set aside.
    2. 2
      Measure out peanut butter, marshmallow creme and vanilla onto a large, lightly buttered or greased plate; set aside.
    3. 3
      Place evaporated milk and sugar into a large heavy pot; stir until combined. Add butter or margarine and salt.
    4. 4
      Bring to a boil over medium heat while stirring; adjust heat until a consistent medium-boil is achieved. (You need to lower the heat if the bubbles are popping and spurting dangerously close to your hand while stirring.).
    5. 5
      Boil 12 minutes (more or less), stirring constantly.
    6. 6
      Remove from heat; quickly add remaining ingredients and beat by hand until thoroughly combined.
    7. 7
      Pour into prepared pan. Let cool. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Cover tightly with aluminum foil.
    8. 8
      Note for subsequent batches: If your batch is less firm than you’d like, increase cooking time a minute or so. If it’s too firm, or becomes dry or crystal-ly when cooled, decrease cooking time or add more peanut butter.

      This was fantastic! I used Crunchy Jif PB. I took some to work and in 3 hours it was gone! I never got so many compliments on a dessert before! This is a keeper! Thank you for posting.

      As much as I LOVE chocolate & peanut butter, I've never liked the taste of Reese's PB cups, but THIS fudge blends both flavors so well! I did omit the walnuts, but then used extra crunchy PB! Very, very nice, & definitely a keeper, especially for winter holiday gift-giving! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
