Butterscotch Peanut Fudge Recipe

Butterscotch Peanut Fudge Recipe

I am a substitute teacher and found this fudge recipe in a very old book in our school library. It was written before microwaves, so I modified it to make a quick treat. The faculty and staff gave it rave reviews. —Peggy Key, Grant, Alabama

"This fudge is to die for and so easy to make that it is ridiculous. The second time I made it I used the peanut butter-milk chocolate chips and it was really yummy too. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. SJS9"

"Turned out well, though I felt like it had a bit of a personality crisis (war between the butterscotch and peanut butter). I think I'll make this again, and swap out the butterscotch chips for peanut butter chips and enjoy a straight peanut butter fudge."

"This was ok. Family thought it was good but didn't eat it as much as the other flavors of fudge we had over the holidays. I had to leave out the peanuts due to family preferences."
