Peanut Butter Fudge

peanut 3

He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers ate some of the marshmallows I was going to use in this recipe, then complained when he ate a piece of the finished fudge that his piece didn’t have any marshmallow in it. I had to explain to him (after I stopped laughing), that the marshmallow had melted into the recipe.

2 Cups small marshmallows

2 Cups sugar

2//3 Cup evaporated milk

125gm butter

3/4 Cup peanut butter (I used a blend of maple syrup and peanut butter – Yum).

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix the sugar, evaporated milk and butter in a large saucepan and dissolve the sugar over a low heat. Bring to the boil, stirring continuously, then boil at a lower heat for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Take the mixture off the heat and stir in what is left of your marshmallows, the peanut butter and vanilla. The little coloured blobs in the picture below are the marshmallows that He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers didn’t eat.

Press the mixture into a tin lined with baking paper and refrigerate. Cut into small squares.
