Simple to make. Excellent results! I gave this out as gifts and it didn't last more than a few minutes. I did have to raise the temperature on the stove a couple of notches above medium to help it reach the 234 degree point and it set just fine. I used natural (kind where oil separates) chunky peanut butter. Read More

This fudge did not set very well. In fact it didn't set at all. I will give it two stars because it was quite tasty but fudge isn't fudge unless it sets properly. Next time I'll use my tried-and-true fudge recipe and substitute it with peanut butter chips (instead of chocolate chips). You might want to do the same thing. Read More

I made several batches during Christmas and everyone loved it. I did find that after the mixture started boiling I had to stop stirring except occasionally for the temperature to rise in a timely manner. Read More

this is really a great recipe!! I've made it about ten times and it has never failed to set or been grainy. I've started putting chocolate chips on the top and letting them melt...It makes a giant Reese's peanut butter cup. My daughter loves it! Read More

I thought this was very yummy. It was very easy and very fast. Can't ask for much better in a recipe. The only change I think I am going to make next time is to add in some chopped peanuts right before I pour this into the pan to set. Read More

I must have done something horribly wrong. I first suspected a problem when while stirring in the marshmallow the mixture thickened and I barely got it out of the pan in big clumps. I definitely had no problem with it setting up but it wasn't edible. This came out as hard as a rock. Too bad as the flavor was nice on the chunk I sampled. This didn't work for me. I think I'll stick with marshmallow creme recipes. Read More

Candy can be tricky to make but this recipe was especially problematic. I used a candy thermometer (which appears well calibrated) and the temperature rose steadily until it reached about 215 F and remained there for about 30 minutes until I gave up and poured it in the pan anyway. The fudge had a pleasing flavor but it never really firmed up. Was not worth the effort. Read More

I agree with the rest of the reviews. This recipe did not turn out like I had anticipated. I noticed it was rather liquidy so I started to add more marshmellows in the hopes of it firming. I doubled the recipe and used 2 (9X13) and 1 8X8 sized pans. The 8X8 firmed nicely. The other 2 not so much. Read More

I really liked the taste of this and it was super easy to make. The only downfall for me was it never hardened. It remained soft which made it difficult to cut. Read More
