Our guest blogger today is Patricia Cole Tucker, whom I met in an online recipe group. I loved what she shared there.
Patricia wrote, “This is my mom’s handwritten peanut butter fudge recipe. She passed four years ago this month. This recipe was one of my favorite things she made. When she passed away I framed it and hung it in my kitchen.
I sometimes make it just like she did and other times it is a flop. However, every time I make it my mind is flooded with memories of me watching her make it and hearing her laugh with me each time I tried to make it.”
The recipe, lovingly displayed with lace and a burlap rose in a vintage style frame, is a tribute to her mother and their good times together in the kitchen.
For easier reading, I’ll transcribe her recipe.
Peanut Butter Fudge
2 cups sugar 1 jar marshmallow creme – small
1 tbls cocoa 1 – 12 oz peanut butter
1 cup milk 1 tsp vanilla
Combine sugar, cocoa, milk – cook to soft ball stage. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, marshmallow creme, vanilla. Beat until thickens. Pour into greased pan, cut in squares.
Someone commented, “there is nothing more comforting than seeing my mom’s handwriting. I miss her so much. Thanks for sharing your awesome creation!”
Hang your framed recipe where it won’t get direct sunlight that might fade the ink or you can buy special glass that blocks UV rays. This is an idea that we all can take to heart.
