This fast and simple recipe yields tasty peanut butter fudge with a surprising "nut-like crunch" that will confound all who try to guess what it is! It is also very inexpensive to make, because it does not require butter or nuts!
Mix sugar and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. Place all remaining ingredients in a bowl. Pour hot mixture over them and mix thoroughly. Pour into a buttered or sprayed pan (I use 2 pie tins). Let cool in refrigerator. Cut and enjoy! Ask folks to guess what makes the subtle crunch!
Note: I have stirred in a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips just before pressing into the pan, for a nice change. It makes a marbled look and has a flavor similar to a peanut butter cup.

Sounds quick for kids can I melt marshmallows if I do not have marshmallow creme thanks. soon time to feed winter birds. lol
It is very quick! Don't know if melted marshmallows would work, worth a try, though!
Please help. I tried this recipe. It sounded great. I followed it to the letter. It was a horrible mess. Sticky and gooey. Not able to cut it at all. Refrigerating it did not make it firm.
Spoostad, I can't guess what might have gone amiss. I double-checked the recipe and it is typed out the same as I have made it several times. Just troubleshooting; did the sugar and milk come to full boil? I think that, and the cooking of the sugar and milk for 5 full minutes is what makes it set up. Not enough cooking time for these two ingredients is the only thing I can think of that could make it gooey without getting firm. I do keep mine in the fridge after making, because it sets up faster. But it always starts to firm up within minutes. This does make a somewhat "softish" fudge, but it is definitely firm enough to be cuttable when I make it. Sorry it didn't work out for you. I feel guilty that my thrifty recipe caused someone to lose money and food!
