"No Cook" Peanut Butter Fudge

As you might imagine, this was one of our favorites when we were kids. Makes 2 pounds.


1/2 cup soft butter

1/2 cup light corn syrup

3/4 cup peanut butter (smooth)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring

4 cups sifted confectioners sugar

3/4 cup chopped nuts



Blend first five ingredients in large mixing bowl. Stir in sifted confectioners sugar gradually. Turn onto board and knead until well blended and smooth. Add nuts gradually, pressing and kneading into candy. Press out with hands or rolling pin into square 1/2 inch thick. Cut into serving pieces.
