Peanut Butter Fudge

Had a craving for some fudge, so I whipped up some of this right after supper. It is fairly quick and easy. Took about 1/2 hour from start to finish (that is, eating it!).

Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe
2 cups granulated sugar
3 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup milk
pinch salt

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup marshmallow creme (I used 8 large marshmallows, melted in the microwave when it was time for the creme to go in.)
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine sugar, butter, milk and salt in large heavy saucepan. Heat and stir on medium until sugar is dissolved and mixture begins to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Boil slowly, uncovered for about 8 minutes, stirring twice, until mixture reaches soft ball stage (about 235 degrees F, 113 degrees C, on candy thermometer) or until small amount dropped into very cold water forms a soft ball that flattens on its own accord when removed. Remove from heat. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Stir in peanut butter, marshmallow creme and vanilla. Pour into greased 8 x 8 inch pan. Spread evenly. Cool. Makes about 1 1/2 lbs. Cuts into 64 pieces.
