Peanut Butter Fudge

This Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Fudge recipe has been passed down for three generations. This stuff is sweet and intensely peanut buttery. It's a family tradition delicious enough to keep going for another 50 years at least.

  • Cuisine: American


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup marshmallow creme
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Spray or butter an 8x8 inch baking pan and set aside.
  2. Clip a candy thermometer onto a medium sauce pan and put it over medium heat. Add sugar and evaporated milk and stir to combine. Heat mixture to the soft ball stage (234 degrees F, 112 C), stirring frequently. Once it starts to bubble, I stir it constantly.
  3. Either before you start to boil the sugar or just after you add it to the pan, measure out your marshmallow creme, peanut butter, and vanilla. Just put it in a small bowl so it will be ready to add all at once later.
  4. As soon as your sugar mixture reaches the proper temperature, remove it from the heat and add remaining ingredients. Stir until smooth. This could take a while, but just keep working at it until it all comes together.
  5. Pour the fudge into your waiting pan and allow it to cool. 
  6. Once it's set, cut the fudge six times in each direction and gently remove from the pan. Store in an air tight container.



  • Make sure you prepare everything before your sugar mixture starts to boil. Once you reach that point, everything needs to happen very quickly, so get ready.
