Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

My sister shared the recipe for this unbelievably easy peanut butter fudge with marshmallow cream. I prefer using creamy peanut butter for this mouthwatering dessert, but the chunky style works just as well. —Mary Jane Rummel, Linglestown, Pennsylvania

      I can’t make fudge the old fashioned way because I can’t stir or hold on to the spoon long enough to bring it up to temp needed to set correctly. I now use the Marshmallow Creme to make all my fudges.

      This is a favorite in our house and easy to make. I add melted chocolate across the top for an added kick.

      Super, easy, super creamy and so delicious. Makes terrific Instant Gifts. It also freezes very well. Nice clean cuts into perfect bite sized squares. I used crunchy Peanut Butter for that extra little Peanut Butter Taste. VFE
