Yield: Depends how big you cut them!

What you need: 8 or 9 inch greased square pan

Ingredients

1 can (12 oz.) EVAPORATED Milk
12 oz. (1 1/2 Cups) granulated (regular) Sugar
1 1/2 Cup creamy Peanut Butter
1 (7 oz.) can Marshmallow Cream
1 1/2 Tablespoons Butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon (heaping) Nestle's Quick ( cocoa mix drink stuff)

Instructions

1. In a pan, on medium heat, bring to a boil the sugar and evaporated milk until soft ball stage (234 degrees). Remove from heat and, add the remaining ingredients.
****** Please note, if you have a thermometer the mix needs to reach 234 degrees, if not, as a guide, just boil for about 10 minutes, stirring and then if you fill a cup with cold water, drop a little bit of the mix into the cold water and if it's ready, it forms a soft ball.

2. Combine well then transfer to a 9" Buttered sq. pan and let cool to room temperature and tightly cover, and put in refrigerator to cool for several hours or overnight then cut into squares.

Nanny Pat's Top Tip : When cutting the fudge, use a sharp knife and cut DOWNWARDS, try to do it in one move as the fudge will crumble if you cut like you would a loaf of bread.

  1. For the peanut butter fudge, do you have to add cocoa drink mix. I’ve made fudge for many years then found some new recipes, but not sure what this is for. Can it be made without it? Thank w
