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
