Big Pine Lodge Fudge

Big Pine Lodge Fudge

3 cups sugar

2/3 cup cocoa

1 pkg unflavored gelatin

½ teaspoon salt

Mix above and add:

1 ½ cups milk

Stir over medium high heat to boil and add:

½ stick butter

Heaping (really, really big) tablespoon of peanut butter (I use a serving spoon, so it’s probably more like ¼ cup)

Almost ½ cup corn syrup

Handful marshmallows

Stir constantly and bring to soft ball temperature on thermometer (or dip test by dropping a little into a glass of cold water until it forms a soft ball) This takes 10 – 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and place pan on cold stone surface or sink of ice water. Stir and add ½ stick of butter, 1 tsp. vanilla. Keep stirring until thick peaks form then pour onto buttered dish. (This slow cool down takes about 5 minutes and if you have a granite countertop you’ll move to a new cooler spot every 30 seconds.)

David, it's a family recipe I learned from my uncle years ago. Big Pine Lodge is the name of my home which is nearly 2000 miles from the Florida Keys. Please stop advertising your website on my hubs, I'd rather direct folks to www.bigpinelodgebooks.com Thanks!
