The important thing to remember with fudge is to plan ahead. Have all ingredients pre-measured because when the fudge is ready to prepare, it is a fast process!
Before beginning, pre-measure 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 pint jar marshmallow creme...
...and 1 cup peanut butter. Feel free to use chunky peanut butter as well as creamy.
Grease your measuring cup with a little butter to ensure peanut butter slips right out!
Place a candy thermometer along the side of a heavy-bottomed kettle.
Ensure that the thermometer is not touching the bottom of the kettle.
Measure 2/3 cups evaporated milk.
Pour evaporated milk and 2 cups sugar into kettle. Being to a boil, stirring constantly.
Once boiling, watch the thermometer. Bring to a soft boil or 240 degrees. Do not just turn the stove on high! Perform this process slowly, stirring constantly.
When the mixture reaches a soft boil, remove from heat and add vanilla, peanut butter, and marshmallow creme. Stir constantly until completely dissolved.
Pour into buttered 9x9 pan and let cool completely.
