Grandma's Peanut Butter Fudge
December 04, 2006

I don't know why but this recipe would not work for me and I really wanted it to. Determined, I attempted it 3 times. My first attempt I used the candy thermometer, removing it from the heat once the temperature reached soft ball stage. It never set up. The second time, I tried letting it boil for a full six minutes as was suggested by another reviewer. It never set up. I blamed the weather, it was rainy and unseasonably humid on the day I attempted it and have read this can definitely have an effect on fudge setting up. My 3rd attempt, the weather was dry and cold. I let the mixture boil for a full 8 minutes this time. It never set up. All 3 attempts ended up as a sugary sludge that found its way down my garbage disposal. My 4th attempt was another recipe that turned out perfectly on the first attempt. I really wanted this recipe to work. I have no idea what went wrong but one thing that I do know for sure is that I will never attempt this recipe again.
