These old-fashion peanut butter fudge squares are as creamy as they are addictive. Just make sure to resist temptation and wait for them to cool completely before cutting, so you end up with these cute little squares and not a big old peanut butter mess!
Peanut Butter Fudge
(Makes 1 dozen squares)
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup soy creamer (original or vanilla flavor)
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1) Lightly grease a 9" x 9" baking dish.
2) In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, bring sugar, brown sugar, soy creamer, corn syrup, and salt to a boil, stirring constantly. Once at a full boil, cover and cook for 1 minute.
3) Remove cover; do not stir. Continue cooking until the candy thermometer reaches 240F. If you don't have a candy thermometer handy, you can also test for this temperature by dropping a pea-sized amount of fudge into a glass of ice water; the fudge should easily form into a ball in the water and melt as you remove it from the water. Without stirring, spoon on peanut butter mixed with vanilla. Remove pan from heat and allow to cool on the counter for 20 minutes.
4) After 20 minutes, stir fudge with a wooden spoon until it begins to thicken and become creamy, about 2 or 3 minutes.
5) Spoon into prepared baking dish and smooth the top. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
