  • 2 cups White Sugar. Powdered or crystal, as per your choice
  • ½ cup Milk. Or 1 can of Evaporated Milk

Cooking Instructions;

  • Remove the pan from heat when butter is all molten. Now mix in the peanut butter and cook it again till the mixture combines well together. Once it is all smooth, remove it from heat and let it cool to room temperature.
  • Next, add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract to the mixture. Use a wooden spoon to beat the mixture well until it smoothens.
  • Add nuts if you wish to use them in your fudge. Then, very quickly, start setting the mixture in the greased dish and put it in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours or until the candy is cool and firm.
  • Cut it into 1-inch squares, and your Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe in Karo Syrup is ready to eat!

Did You Know Fudge Was Just Another Experiment?

The history of Fudge dates back to the 18th century. It was first invented in America in Baltimore, where a student wrote a letter mentioning that her classmate’s cousin invented Fudge. The most interesting thing about Fudge is its name that originates from the verb, ‘OH Fudge!’ Now we don’t know what came first, but certainly, we love that caramel making got a little messed up and resulted in fudge.
