Peanut Butter Fudge

Believe it or not - I've never made this before yesterday. It is good stuff. This is definitely what needs to get out of my kitchen (in little gift bags) before I eat it all. So good and addicting, creamy and delicious!
This recipe is from Tina, who has been making it for 20 years - a family recipe. Thank you for sharing the recipe and for the tips on how to make it come out just right (without a candy thermometer!)

5 cups of sugar
1 large can evaporated milk
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 jars marshmallow fluff (7 oz each)

Melt sugar and milk over low heat - add butter, stir until completely melted. Bring to boil for about 10 minutes (I had to raise the heat to about a 6-7) - stirring constantly! :) (You get your arm workout for the day!). When it begins to thicken, remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and marshmallow fluff (who can't like this stuff, I mean, its totally not healthy for you, but so good). Pour into a buttered 10x15 pan with sides. Smooth out. Let chill (in fridge or on counter). Cut into small squares and give away!
