Ray’s mom gave me this recipe the first Christmas that Ray and I spent together. It’s one of their family’s Christmas favorites. They love to offer an unsuspecting guest a drink of soda to go with the fudge and watch the reaction to the “explosion” that results from the combination.
1 stick of butter
1 small can of evaporated milk
2 1/2 cups of sugar
1 cup of creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp of vanilla
1 7-ounce jar of marshmallow cream
A few willing assistants
Grease a 9X12 dish
Put butter and evaporated milk in pan. Do a little math while measuring the sugar into the pan: how many 1/2 cups make 2 1/2 cups total?
Heat and stir to boiling. Allow to boil for five minutes stirring often.
Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter until smooth.
Add vanilla and marshmallow cream. Stir until smooth.
Pour into 9X12 pan.
Lick the spoons.
Cut into squares and store in a covered container, dividing the layers with waxed paper.
