The Monday Recipe Blog

Howdy from the Sooner State!  After the holidays and in the midst of winter, sometimes things can get kind of depressing.  Cold, short days, long nights, winter doldrums.

What better way to get out of the depression ditch than to make a batch of candy?

Today, straight from the recipe box of Lois Elaine Mueller, is a recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge. For the next several months I will be featuring Lois Elaine's recipes every Monday. Her heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.

Lois Elaine's Peanut Butter Fudge:

2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. oleo (this means margarine or butter substitute)
1/4 c. corn syrup
1/2 c. milk
6 T. cocoa
1/4 t. salt
1 c. chopped nuts (your choice)
1 c. peanut butter
1 t. vanilla extract

Combine all but the peanut butter and nuts.  Boil 3 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Add peanut butter and nuts.  Beat well.  Mix in the vanilla.  Pout into buttered pan and let set up.
