This is probably one of the best Peanut Butter Fudge recipes out there. My uncle Rick kept this fudge recipe a secret from everyone for decades.

Now I know why. After applying some gentle pressure, he agreed to share his recipe with me so here I am going to share with all of you!

Making fudge is not terribly difficult. But it is important to get the right consistency. You must have a good candy thermometer to achieve the desired result.

If you don’t have one yet, do yourself a favor and get one. They are not expensive and will ensure you don’t under or overheat the sugar mixture.

If you prefer a more classic type of fudge, make sure you check out my Marg’s Classic Fudge recipe. Or for a little fancier fudge, try my Root Beer Fudge recipe.
