This is a wonderful fudge. If you like peanut butter this is for you. I don't even like peanut butter and I love it.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk*
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup peanut butter

3 cups powdered sugar, sifted

Melt butter in medium saucepan. Add milk and brown sugar and bring to a boil. Boil two minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add vanilla and peanut butter. Mix well with a portable mixer or stir like crazy with a spoon. Pour over powdered sugar--I sift mine first--and mix with a mixer, again, or stir like crazy with a spoon, until all sugar is incorporated. Pour into an 8 inch square pan. Chill, cut and serve.

*We don't keep milk in the house so I put about 2/3 of a half-cup measure full of canned milk and fill the rest of the cup with water--it works fine.

PS It's best eaten warm, right out of the bowl. Don't tell anyone. Only the one who makes the fudge should have that information.

PPS I have made batches and batches of this. Everyone who tries it loves it. This takes less than fifteen minutes to make.

I had a little problem when making peanut butter fudge (although the recipe isn't what you have here)

I've tried two differ recipes, and they both came out sticky

I was wondering if yours were sticky too even after chilling?

Thank you

I've never had a problem with it being sticky. I think I boiled it too long once and it was almost too dry. I made it for Christmas for family and neighborhood gifts and I must have made maybe fifteen to twenty batches. Perfect every time except for that one worrysome dryish batch.

Good luck with your future fudge making.
