Elizabeth's Peanut Butter Fudge

Ingredients for 15 oz. jar of fluff:
4 cups white sugar
1-1/3 cups evaporated milk
2 cups Skippy Chunky Peanut Butter
15 oz. marshmallow fluff
Ingredients for 13 oz. jar of fluff:
3 cups white sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
1-1/2 cup Skippy Chunky Peanut Butter
13 oz. marshmallow fluff

Check the jar of marshmallow fluff and see how many ounces it is; then make sure you use the correct set of ingredients above.

Grease and set aside a 9x13" baking dish. Measure peanut butter and marshmallow fluff into a large mixing bowl and set aside. Combine sugar and milk in a large flat-bottomed saucepan. Over high heat, stirring constantly, cook to the soft-ball stage. Pour hot mixture over fluff and peanut butter and stir well. Quickly pour mixture into the greased dish. Cut before fudge cools completely.

This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law, Elizabeth Netz, a candy-maker extraordinaire in her day. She will be 90 years old tomorrow.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
