Favorite Peanut Butter Fudge

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Favorite Peanut Butter Fudge
A favorite peanut butter fudge recipe with peanut butter, sugar, optional and nuts.


  • 2 cups sugar (half brown sugar if desired)
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 to 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional


Mix sugar, salt, syrup and milk in pan. Bring to boil slowly.

Cook until small amount forms soft ball in cold water, about 235° on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat, add peanut butter and vanilla. Do not stir. Cool to lukewarm then beat just until creamy, losing gloss and beginning to hold shape. Stir in nuts if used. Pour into a buttered loaf pan or 8- x 8-inch pan and cool. Cut in small squares.

*To Test for Soft Ball Stage
A small amount of syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but is soft enough to flatten slightly when picked up with fingers (234° to 240°).
