Peanut Butter Fudge
In a large saucepan Put:
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of condensed milk, like Pet
Boil gently until it comes to a soft ball.
(Using your candy thermometer, heat it to “soft ball”…If you don’t have a candy thermometer you can test it by dropping a drop of the candy into a glass of water. When the drop forms into a little soft ball, it’s ready. If the drop of candy scatters, it needs a little more cooking)
As soon as this happens, take it off the stove and put:
1 cup of peanut butter
1 tablespoon of vanilla
1 cup of chopped pecans
Beat until creamy, be quick about this or it will set up in the pan.
Put mixture on a buttered plate.
This is a recipe Jack taught me to make when we got married.
I have been making it ever since.
It is a wonderful candy, too much temptation to make. A real diet buster.
