Peanut Butter Fudge - Without this, it's not Christmas in our family!

Because I love you, and because this treat gets requested more than any other in our family around the holidays, as my gift to you, to kick off the holiday season, I give you, our "secret" Peanut Butter Fudge recipe.  Now mind you, this is a LITTLE like that Friends episode where Pheobe thinks her mom made a super secret custom chocolate chip recipe, but it turned out to be the recipe from the Nestle Tollhouse morsel bag... (because it is an adaptation of Kraft's Fantasy Fudge) BUT still, trust me you NEED to make this.  Really.

Peanut Butter Fudge (which has far surpassed chocolate fudge in popularity in our family)
What you need:
3 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter
2/3 c. evaporated milk
1 7 oz jar of marshmallow cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 c. creamy peanut butter

What to do:
1.  Place sugar, butter, milk in a heavy saucepan over medium heat.  Heat to a full rolling boil.  Stir frequently.  Once boiling you must stir CONSTANTLY for 5 full minutes.  (That part is super important!)
2. Remove the mixture from heat, and stir in the peanut butterm, marshmallow cream and vanilla until well blended.
3. Pour into a buttered 9 by 9 or 9 by 13 inch pan (depending on how thick of squares you want to cut).
4. Allow to cool, fudge will be firm enough to cut when cool.  Cover with saran wrap to keep from drying out.
5. Give to your family and watch them say yes to anything you ask.
