Fudge has become my nemesis.  I actually think fudge kinda hates me.  I can make an absolutely delicious tasting mixture of ingredients that should become fudge.  I can pour that delicious tasting mixture into my well greased dish.  I can set that dish in the fridge to cool & NEVER set.  Seriously, everytime I have tried to make fudge, it does.not.set.

It pisses me off.

So don’t let that horrible picture above deter you from making this AMAZING recipe!  It may not be pretty but it’s daaaaaaammmmmn good.  So make it.  Today.

And I’ll pray to the fudge gods that yours sets better than mine!

Taffy Tan Fudge

Servings 16 large squares


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 jar 7 ounces marshmallow cream
  • 1 & 1/2 cups peanut butter original recipe called for crunchy, I used creamy
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • In a large saucepan, combine the sugar & milk. Bring to a boil; then lower heat to medium. Stir 5 minutes over medium heat to soft ball stage (about 238 degrees). Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the marshmallow cream, peanut butter and vanilla. Beat until well blended. Pour into a greased 8x8 inch pan. Cool.
  • It it sets for you, cut into squares. If not, feel free to dig in with a spoon. We won't judge.
