Peanutbutter Fudge

2 Cups Sugar
1/2 Cup Milk
1 Stick Butter
2 Cups Peanutbutter
1 teaspoon Vanilla

In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar milk and butter, bringing them to a full boil. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally until it reaches the hard ball stage, use a candy thermometer to be sure you have reached the correct stage. Next, remove from heat, and stir in the peanutbutter and the vanilla. Mix until desired creamy texture is reached. Pour immediately into a greased brownie pan, if the recipe is doubled, use a 13" X 9" pan. Cool , cut into squares and serve.

Optional: You may add chopped walnuts or chocolate chips to the recipe or garnish the top of the fudge with nuts also.

IMPORTANT NOTE:You may double this recipe, but do not try to more than double it as it will fail to set properly, and your fudge will be runny.
