Peanut Butter Fudge, the All-American Candy

Being a peanut butter fan and a fudge fan, I especially like the two combined. This may be the first All American candy…. after all peanut butter was invented as we all know by the good Booker T Washington in Alabama. So, without his fabulous discovery, no peanut butter fudge.

This recipe seems straight forward and I plan to try it, so I will have real American candy on the 4th of July:


  • 4 cups sugar
    4th of July treat

    Mmmm, Fudge! Peanut Butter! Happy 4th of July


  • 1 cup whole, or evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup white corn syrup
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups peanut butter, creamy
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix sugar, milk, syrup, butter and salt together in a large saucepan. Boil for 5 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add peanut butter. Return pan to heat and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. and add vanilla; beat until slightly stiff. Pour onto butter platter. Let set a couple of hours and cut into squares.
