    Peanutbutter fudge. It was your Father’s speciality, and it was my Son, Scott’s favorite Christmas treat. I was not able to make myself make it this year. Maybe in years to come. We both have such wonderful memories don’t we. When I saw the picture it overwhelmed me, I could see his eyes light up when the little plate was piled high and sit on the side bar where I put the goodies at the holiday meal.

    ooh, if only we didn’t have a peanut allergy. Stinker, well I guess that means I won’t be making these. Made press cookies yesterday with my daughter AND…. was reminded why I don’t bake. It’s a skill I’ve not mastered LOL. Thanks for sharing. Hope you’ll pop over my blog as I’ve posted a Christmas message.

    Oooo,yum. No doubt daddy’s “peanut buttah fudge” would be a hit anywhere (other than the allergies,Bum-Mer!). I had dear neighbors 20+yrs back that made PBFudge that you couldn’t stop eating, and they are gone now…so I feel like I need to make this (and watch my butt grow because I won’t be able to stop eating it-still). Thank you for posting the recipe. Wishing you joy…-s-

    My Grandma always made Peanut “Butta” Fudge. Always a favorite. We looked foward to it every year. She would make it for days so that each grandchild could take a big container home. I always freeze mine. Gets really cold but not hard. Her recipe is a bit different and a bit more complicated. The thing I liked the most about it…is she used chunky peanut butter instead of adding other nuts. I miss her and her PB fudge. This year we attempted it… yummy but not the same as Grandma’s :) Happy Holidays! :)
