    Default Grandpa Carl's Famous Peanut Butter Fudge

    This has been passed down from generation to generation.

    1/2 c. Half and Half
    6 cups of white sugar
    6 T. light corn syrup

    Cook in large saucepan until 240F (soft ball stage). Remove from heat.

    Add:

    1 1/2 c. peanut butter
    1 t. vanilla
    1/4 c. butter

    Beat well, then pour into well-buttered 8x8x2 baking pan.

    Chill, then cut into squares.

    Your recipe is alot like my Grandmother's vanilla fudge recipe, only it says to cook to soft ball stage 236 degrees which I did. It failed. Now I have gooey caramel. Seeing your post made me realize that it needed to be cooked to 240 degrees. I was wondering if it would be possible to recook the goo and bring it back up to 240. Have you ever done this? I hate like everything to have to throw this mess out.

    I've never tried it. If you are going to throw it out, anyway, it can't hurt to experiment!

    I just realized that I messed this recipe up!! Hopefully, you will read this far!

    It should be ONE cup of 1/2 and 1/2. My recipe calls for 1/2 pint, and my tired mind didn't make the conversion.
