{Fudge & Cookies}

So my first batch of peanut butter fudge that I made for my gift baskets turned out really well using a combination of Adams pb & Skippy pb - I didn't want it to have a ton of sugar and revamped a recipe I had to fit my needs. Well I ran out of Skippy and decided since I just use Adams when making pb & honey sandwiches it can't be all bad to use completely for my fudge recipe. I WAS WRONG....it turned out awful! So I ran out and bought some more Skippy - it won't go to waste as it's my Uncle's favorite pb for sandwiches.

I really do like this recipe alot and wanted to share it with you because it's fast and easy to make and tastes ooooh so good.

Arya's Peanut Butter Fudge

* 2 cups granulated sugar
* 2/3 cup milk
* 1 cup marshmallow creme
* 1/2 cup Skippy peanut butter (creamy or nutty)
* 1/2 cup Adams peanut butter (no stir pb)
* 1 teaspoon vanilla

Please note if you like super sweet peanut butter fudge you can forgo the Adams and just use 1 cup of skippy.


Boil sugar and milk in a medium saucepan, stirring occasionally, to soft ball stage*, or about 236° on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Pour candy into a greased 8x8-inch pan and chill. Cut peanut butter fudge into squares when cool and firm.

*To Test for Soft Ball Stage
A small amount of syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but is soft enough to flatten when picked up with fingers (234° to 240°).

I found this website while perusing blogs this morning. It has tons of cookie recipes - some old, some new and all look like fun to make.

This morning while taking the below pictures I was amazed at how quickly Ruth's mood changed - (just take a peek and you will see what I mean). The basket full of goodies are for the cookie exchange. I know not everything in the basket is a cookie but I had leftovers and don't want them to go to waste...
