It is so wonderfull I make it all year round.

I make this every year at Christmas. My husband loves it. I have a friend of my son asking for it weeks before Christmas. I use creamy peanut butter. I'm not a real big fan of peanut butter, but this is good!

The recipe is ok, but be aware that the fudge will be very "sticky" with a consistancey almost like cookie dough rather than fudge. I think that it would be fine if the recipe warned you of how gooey it is when finished.

Very tasty, but the cook time needs to be adjusted. Did not set up enough. I will try it again, but cook it longer.

I like this fudge but I could not get it to set. I have made it twice with the same results. After the boiling for 5 minutes are you suppose to beat the peanut butter and marshmellow cream like you do regular fudge. I am baffled.
- A Baker

the best fudge I have ever made. I love it

I would make this again, but it fudge comes out better if you cool in the fridge first before storing at room temprature, it makes it easier to cut into squares.
- A Baker

Like most fudge you need to boil it to the soft ball stage, and this took approx 8 to 10 min. Stirred it till almost all the glossiness diaappeared and it turned out perfect.
