There are a million of them online, and I have some old recipes (where the fudge dries out pretty quick), and microwave recipes

Do you have a nice fudge recipe you are willing to share? Peanut butter fudge or half and half would be the family favorite, I want to make it and send it in a tin to some relatives. THNX!

The one on the marshmallow creme jar is easy and very creamy.  You can add nuts or not.

I deep sixed my other fudge recipes after I first made it. 

I do have a great recipe for Tiger Butter which is peanut butter and white chocolate fudge.

Peanut Butter Fudge
 
  • 2 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 stick butter or margarine
  • 1 can (5 oz) Evaporated Milk
  • 1 Jar (7 1/2oz) Marshmallow Fluff
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 9 oz Peanut Butter (creamy or chunky)

Grease a 9-inch square baking pan; set aside. In large saucepan combine first 5 ingredients. Stir over low heat until blended. Over medium heat, bring to a full-rolling boil being careful not to mistake escaping air bubbles for boiling. Boil slowly, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in peanut butter until blended. Turn into greased pan and cool.Makes 2 1/2 pounds.

Hint: As with all fudge recipes, cooking time will vary depending on factors such as humidity and altitude. For best results, use the softball test to make sure the fudge has been cooked enough.

with apologies as i know this should go in the recipe section, but i'm copying it right from the yummy book published by marshmallow fluff. and heading out the door.
