Oh how I love dorky titles for blog posts! Almost as much as I love fudge. Peanut Butter fudge to be exact. I made a little pan of this stuff a couple of days ago and it didn’t last long, it was sooooo good. I’ve made this before, it’s my stand-by peanut butter fudge recipe, but it’s so much easier to do now that I’m using a gas stove. Yay for the power of fire! Recipe:
Peanut Butter Fudge
-2 cups sugar
-2 TB light corn syrup
-2/3 cup vanilla soymilk
-1 TB margarine (I use Earth Balance whipped)
-1 tsp. vanilla extract
-1/2 cup natural peanut butter (salt free)
-chocolate chips (optional)
Also needed: large saucepan, candy thermometer, 8″ baking dish
1. In the large saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and soymilk. Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring constantly until the mixture reaches 234 degrees F. Remove pan from heat. Please be extremely careful, hot sugar mixtures are like napalm.
2. Add the margarine and mix until well combined. Let the mixture cool until it’s warm but not insanely hot. Stir it once and while during the cooling process to break up any sugar crystals.
3. Add in the vanilla and peanut butter. Beat with a hand beater until the fudge is matte and airy. Press the fudge into the baking dish and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Cool well before serving.
