[this recipe came from Mema’s cousin, Carilyn]
I had to try this! Jonas loves peanut butter but there’s one thing Jonas loves even more – Sunbutter. His preschool is a tree-nut free school so he has developed a deep love of Sunbutter sandwiches! So when I was going to try Mema’s Peanut Butter Fudge recipe I thought, why not try Sunbutter instead and I’m really glad I did – delicious! And a wonderful treat for those with peanut allergies. Also, very easy and quick to make! I think I’m going to make some for Jonas’ teacher for a teacher appreciation gift this week.
1 lb. extra fine confectioner’s sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. Sunbutter (or peanut butter)
4 T. butter
4 T. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Place all ingredients except vanilla in top of double broiler in which the water is boiling. Beat until smooth. Add vanilla and beat again. Quickly pour mixture into 7×9 inch buttered baking dish. When candy cools, cut in squares. Refrigerate and remove from pan when cold.
