A few days ago, my friend Erica (she’s an Army Wife too & our husbands worked together at JBLM in Tacoma, WA.) said she was making peanut butter fudge and my ears perked up like a dog who heard a fire truck and wanted to run after it! Immediately, I asked for the recipe and Erica responded with 5 simple ingredients. Seriously, could fudge be that easy? This recipe comes from her Grandma Dillow… which means it’s sure to be a winner if it comes from Grandma!
So today, I tried it. Erica’s recipe didn’t call for the use of a candy thermometer, but I had a brand new one I wanted to try out, so I used mine. I can’t say I’ve ever really been a successful fudge maker, but after making this recipe… I think I am!
Grandma Dillow didn’t top her fudge with chocolate, but I LOVE chocolate and peanut butter so, I added a thin layer of chocolate to the top of the fudge. YUM!
Thanks Grandma Dillow and thanks to Erica for sharing this yummy family recipe!
