Peanut Butter Fudge- Hill Family Recipe
I know, I know. This isn't a foodie blog. But let's face it, I'm a little bit of a foodie. (That's why I only send the food National Calendar Days to my Story Squad.
I make this recipe every year at Christmas time, and often 2 or 3 other times per years. Usually at the request of a family member (like for their birthday) or for some other holiday (like Easter). So, here it is:
1 pound Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp. White Sugar
1 Tbsp. Butter
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. Corn Starch
1 tsp. vanilla
18 ounce jar of Peanut Butter (2 and 1/8 cups)
Directions: Dissolve brown sugar, white sugar, butter, and milk. Cook until soft ball stage. (235 degrees Fahrenheit)
Dissolve corn starch in a little cold water and add to mixture.
Take immediately from stove and beat well. Add in vanilla and peanut butter. Beat together and transfer immediately to a 9x13 pan to cool. (It sets VERY fast, so do this quickly).
***If it sets up crumbly, you cooked it too long on the stove. If too soft, it needed longer. It can take a few tries to perfect the technique, and it can very by your stove and its heat output.***
