So many sweet treats remind me of the Holidays. One of my fondest memories of my Grandmother is the fact that every Christmas she would make homemade peanut butter fudge. I couldn't wait for Grammy to arrive Christmas morning with her batch of peanut butter fudge. Luckily one of my sisters has taken on the tradition, as it wouldn't be Christmas Morning without sneaking a piece of peanut butter fudge before opening presents Christmas Morning. I also have found memories of making fudge with my grandmother.
So you shouldn't be surprised to find a Fudge stamp in the new JustRite Baking Stamp Ensemble .
I purchased a candy box at my local Craft store and covered it with Christmas Paper from American Crafts. I decided to use the Fudge center in conjuction with the family secret Recipe border, since this is for a gift with my family secret recipe. Then I multi loaded the stamp with green and red ink from Versamagic to get this effect. What I love about this set is that not only can you interchange the borders and the centers but you can also use just the border and design your own message for the center. See here how I personalized the tag for another box of Fudge.
Several times I have purchased peanut butter fudge at a country fair in the hopes that it would taste like my grandmothers...but each time I was greatly disappointed. So just in case you were wondering how great Sarah's (my grandmothers) peanut butter fudge really was here is our Family Secret Recipe:
Sarah's Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe
2 1/2 C. Sugar, 1/2 Stick of Butter or Margarine, 1 can (5.33 oz) of evaporated milk, 1 -7 1/2 oz Jar of Marshmallow Fluff, 3/4 tsp. salt, 9 oz Peanut Butter(creamy or chunky).
Grease a 9-inch square baking pan; set aside. In large saucepan combine first 5 ingredients. Stir over low heat until blended. Over medium heat, bring to a full-rolling boil. hint: do not mistake ecaping air bubbles for boiling. Remove from heat, stir in peanut butter until blended. Quickly pour into grease pan and let cool. Once completely cooled cut into squares to fit your candy box.
Hoping this recipe will become one of your family secret recipes!!! The secret is in the Fluff!!
