Peanut Butter Fudge Recipes

Once a year, at Christmas I make several batches of fudge. I scour everywhere for new and different recipes to try. Here you'll find some good peanut butter fudge recipes, plus some tips that will help you make some delicious fudge.

Fudge Making Tips

1. Follow the directions exactly.

2. Once the fudge has cooked to the soft-ball stage (235 degrees F or 115C ), don't over stir. Just mix until the ingredients are blended. Otherwise the sugar in the fudge may crystallize. This will give the fudge a sugary taste. You want the fudge to be creamy, not sugary.

3. It helps to pour the fudge into a bowl when adding chocolate chips, marshmallow crème and similar ingredients. If you don't want to use a separate bowl, be sure not to stir down the sides of the pan. If the sugar is going to crystallize this will cause it.

4. If this is your first time making fudge, stick to the recipe with marshmallow crème. This is an easier one to use without having the fudge crystallize. Recipes with Karo syrup also work well.

5. Read through the entire directions before starting.
