  • Easy Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

    This fudge recipe uses marshmallows as an easy cheat in place of more elaborate candy-making.
    Have your lined baking pan ready to go before you start and work fast once you remove the saucepan from the heat. As the fudge starts to cool, it can become difficult work with.
    1/2 cup whole milk
    6 regular-sized marshmallows (NOT mini or jumbo marshmallows, certified gluten-free if needed)
    3/4 cup (150 g) white granulated sugar
    3/4 cup (165 g) packed light brown sugar
    2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Light levels, low humidity or a missed watering or two can turn a pretty plant ugly in no time.
