I made peanut butter fudge yesterday afternoon. It never set up. I was hoping to give this to my pregnant SIL who is craving it. I am so sad. I made 2 batches. The first batch I used milk from the fridge and didn't think about it being skim until I was stirring in the PB. The second batch I used whole milk. The fudge is gooey- even after sitting in the freezer all night and has a grainy texture.
WORLD FAMOUS PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
2 C. milk
1 C. sugar
1 C. peanut butter
1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow crème
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Stir sugar into milk over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, leave on medium heat without stirring until mixture reaches soft ball stage (it will start to turn a pale gold color).
Remove from heat; immediately stir in peanut butter, marshmallow crème and vanilla extract, in that order. Stir rapidly because mixture will thicken quickly. When it is completely mixed and thickened, pour out into a buttered 8-inch square pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, then cut into squares. This will melt in your mouth!
Thanks for your help!
