People regularly request the recipe once they try my peanut butter fudge dipped in melted white chocolate. It's a nice contrast to typical chocolates on a candy platter. —Tall Pines Farm, Gloria Jarrett, Loveland, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon plus 3/4 cup butter, divided
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 package (10 ounces) peanut butter chips
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 pounds white candy coating
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, optional
  • 1 teaspoon shortening, optional

Directions

Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with foil. Grease the foil with 1 tablespoon butter; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, evaporated milk and remaining butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the peanut butter chips until melted. Add the marshmallow creme, nuts and vanilla; stir until blended. Pour into prepared pan. Cool.
Remove from pan and cut into 1-in. squares. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; freeze or refrigerate until firm. In a microwave, melt candy coating, stirring often. Dip the squares into the coating; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets until set. If desired, melt the chocolate chips and shortening; drizzle over the squares. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 3-1/4 pounds (about 9-1/2 dozen).

"Dipping the fudge in white almond bark is a pain. Next time I will just drizzle with almond bark and add more chopped nuts. Very Delicious Fudge!"
