Are you intimidated by making candy? I recommend you start with fudge! My oldest daughter loves experimenting with different flavors of fudge recipes and different toppings. Infact, a couple of years ago she taught a candy and fudge making class to her fellow 4-H peers. She entered this peanut butter fudge recipe at the county fair and it was a show stopper. Judges were whipping out their phones just to take a picture of her recipe! So give it a try! It is so easy!
For this Easy Peanut Butter Fudge you will need:
14oz sweetened condensed milk
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
Reeses Pieces for topping
In a large glass bowl, melt the milk, chips, and peanut butter in the microwave for about 90 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Spread into a parchment lined 8″ square pan. Sprinkle Reeses Pieces on top and chill for at least 3 hours before cutting. Store in a sealed container. I’m not saying it would be wrong to swap out the Reeses for Snickers or another one of your favorite candy bars.
Like I said, this is an easy recipe that is a show stopper and tastes so good! I’ll put the recipe on the RR FB page and the Your Ag Network App and Website!
Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 4 children near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.
Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her current role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.
You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the Jones Ranch.
