Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

This is an old fashioned recipe that requires cooking ~ no 'instant' on this one.

1 cup light brown sugar
1 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla
1 8 oz. jar smooth/creamy peanut butter

Combine brown sugar, butter, sugar and milk into heavy saucepan. Cook to softball stage or 234 to 260 degrees on candy thermometer (can also check by dropping small amount into a cup of water ~ when it's at 'softball' stage, it will form a soft ball in the cold water)
Stir in cornstarch dissolved in small amount of water
Remove from heat
Beat well
Add peanut butter and vanilla and beat until smooth
Pour into glass baking dish and let set
