Easy Peanut Butter Fudge
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 cup marshmallow creme
1 cup peanut butter, creamy or chunky
1 teaspoon vanilla
Boil sugar and milk in a medium saucepan, stirring occasionally, to soft ball stage*, or about 236° on a candy thermometer.
Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Beat well with a wooden spoon until the fudge begins to turn glossy.
Pour candy into a greased 8×8-inch pan. Cut peanut butter fudge into squares when firm. Enjoy!
*To Test for Soft Ball Stage
A small amount of syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but is soft enough to flatten when picked up with fingers (234° to 240°).
