Delicious old fashioned peanut butter fudge recipe just like grandma used to make.
When I was a very small child my great grandmother lived with us for a few years; she used to make some of the most magical recipes, or at least to my young mind they were! One recipe that has always been a family favorite is her old fashioned peanut butter fudge. I can’t tell you how many times I have had this treat. It is so simple and delicious and sometimes temperamental too! I am not kidding about that last one either, I remember being taught this recipe in my teenage years and the advice to not attempt it during that special time of the month; whether it’s an old wives tale or the humidity, all I can tell you is, her advice was good.
We always made it in the same green Jadeite pie pan as kids and I’ve sworn to my mom ever since then that one day the pie pan will be mine! I love fudge, as you may already know and this fudge is probably the reason for said addiction. It is sweet, creamy and filled with delicious peanut butter flavor; I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!
