My sister shared this recipe for this unbelievably easy confection. I prefer using creamy peanut butter for the mouthwatering fudge, but the chunky style works just as well.—Mrs. Kenneth Rummel, Linglestown, Pennsylvania

"The best peanut butter fudge ever! We never use another recipe. It's like a fluff sandwich on sugar steroids!"

"This turned out perfectly. I read previous reviews before trying this one. The problem with a lot of recipes is lack of details. Have your marshmallow creme jar open, and your peanut butter - I used Jif No Stir Natural Creamy Peanut Butter. already measured out. Prep your pan before you start. I line a 7"x10" glass pan lined with parchment. You must first bring the milk (I used evaporated milk) and sugar to a full boil - one that does not go away when stirred. I usually start with medium-high to get the boil going, then back off to medium once it's boiling. You must stir constantly. Begin your 3 minute timing once the mixture comes to a full boil. Take the pan off the heat! I immediately stirred in a tsp of vanilla. Now you've got to work quickly. Add your peanut butter and marshmallow creme. Stir with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined. Pour into your prepared pan. Let it cool completely at room temperature. To cut it, just lift it our with the parchment paper and place it on your cutting surface. Cut into 1" squares because it's quite rich. LOVE this recipe! Plenty of peanut butter flavor for me."

"Mine turned out great. If it burns, that means your heat is too high. Try medium heat."
