This blog is a culmination of two forever-bakers who have spent countless hours reading about, thinking about, and dreaming about baking delicious treats in our spare time. After taking a few cake decorating classes, our interest has soared to no end. While living and working in the same city has been a sweet treat in itself, a move across the state has spawned the desire to keep in touch by taking our love of baking and everything kitchen to the next level. So wipe your feet on the mat and stay awhile!

Peanut Butter Fudge

Whenever I think of fudge, I think of the old time candy shops down in Galveston, TX where they have things like rocky road fudge, classic chocolate, and usually peanut butter fudge.  I'm not entirely sure who's bright idea it was to have candy shops next to a place that requires women to show off every bulge to all of kingdom come, but when I was a kid with a metabolism it was a great place to be.  This recipe makes the creamiest and most decadent peanut butter fudge right in the comfort of your own bathing-suit not required home.  The great thing about it is that for the candy making novice I feel like it wasn't super difficult!  Please don't be frightened by the amount of sugar in the recipe, some things just require five cups of sugar to attain greatness...

Peanut Butter Fudge
from allrecipes.com

4 c. white sugar
1 c. light brown sugar
1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
1 (7 oz) jar marshmallow creme
1 (16 oz) jar peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Grease a 9x13 baking dish and set aside.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat combine the sugar, brown sugar, butter, and evaporated milk.  Stir constantly until the mixture reaches a boil (try to keep sugar crystals from sitting on the edge of the pan, they can crystallize and give you crunchy fudge).  Once the mixture boils stop stirring and let boil for 7 minutes without any stirring.  This part gave me a heartache because I just KNEW it was going to do something crazy, but just trust that it'll come out fine.  Remove from the heat and stir in the marshmallow creme until melted and well combined, then stir in the peanut butter and vanilla until smooth.  Spread in the prepared baking dish and let cool completely before cutting into squares and devouring the entire pan.
