Oh, Fudge!

You Can Do It

The first sweet treat on the mind this Holiday season is fudge. It’s creamy, it’s delicious, and it’s simple to make.

The first recipe I’m going to show you has been a family secret for generations. My great grandmother passed it down to me, and her grandmother to her. And as they say, things only get better with age. Now, I’m here to pass this amazing peanut butter fudge recipe onto you.

Fudge is surprisingly easy to make. This recipe has little ingredients and does not require a lot of prep or cook time. Any one can do it, so give it a try!

Ingredients

¾ Cups milk

2 Cups sugar

½ TSP Cream of tartar

1 TSP Vanilla Extract

2 Giant Spoonfuls of Peanut Butter

Directions

  1. Combine the milk, sugar, and tartar in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Whisk until incorporated.
  3. Stir occasionally till it comes to a soft boil.
  4. Add room-temperature water to a clear container, then perform the softball test. (See video to learn how.)
  5. Once the mixture sticks, quickly add in the vanilla and peanut butter.
  6. Whisk until smooth.
  7. Pour into unprepared pie tin or desired shape.
  8. It will harden as it cools, no need to refrigerate.

Nutrition Conscious

For a lower calorie and lower fat option, try substituting skim milk for the regular milk. You could also try mixing real sugar with an artificial sweetener to create a blend. This should not interfere with the cooking process.

There are other fudge recipes that require no sugar at all. See here for the recipe.
