The holidays are closer

With the Christmas Holiday getting closer I thought I would post a recipe for fudge that a friend shared with me. I am not skilled in making fudge but this recipe is kinda forgiving. This is for a friend who was looking for a good recipe for fudge.

Peanut Butter Fudge

4 cups granulated sugar
2 cups whole milk
4 tablespoons butter
dash of salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup peanut butter

Combine the sugar and milk in a heavy kettle and bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes. Then add the butter. Cook to soft ball stage. ( she cooked hers till it would hold shape in cold water and you could take the lil ball out and roll it in your fingers like well chewed gum). When it reaches this point remove from the heat and add the vanilla and peanut butter with a dash of salt. Stir quickly and stir well. Pour into a buttered pan to cool. Cut and serve. This stuff is so good.

Enjoy! Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
