MY REVIEW

"Came together so quickly, and turned out delicious! I like a little texture, so I used chunky pb. I liked that I didn't need a candy thermometer & already had all of the ingredients on hand. This will be a go to recipe for sure!"

"Finally!!!

I have been trying to find a good Peanut Butter Fudge recipe off and on for years!
The results have been - too dry, too sweet, blah, broke a wooden spoon trying to get it out of the pan, etc., etc.!! But, I knew there had to be a 'good' one somewhere!
Eureka - I found it!!
Quick - Easy - Smooth - Creamy - Fantastic - Enjoyed by all!!
I did use 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk.
Next time I will use dark brown sugar to see if it turns out more like the color of the photo.
I enjoyed seeing 'real' smiles on faces this year instead of 'fake' ones in past years when I tried to 'force feed other PB fudge'!!!
10 stars if I could!!"
