Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

It’s not Christmas without my mom’s homemade peanut butter fudge.  She makes her Fudge Recipe both with and without nuts to please everyone!  If you love Peanut Butter, you’ll want to make this!

This Peanut Butter Fudge freezes really well and even tastes amazing while it’s still frozen.  My poor freezer has been opened and shut about 100 times today! I break off  a “little” piece at a time and then go back for more 2 seconds later!

Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 Cups White Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Sticks of Margarine
  • 2/3 Cups Pet Milk
  • 1 Cup of Peanut Butter
  • 7oz Marshmallow Creme
  • 1 Tb Cocoa
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Chopped Walnuts (optional)

Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe Directions

  • Melt margarine in a heavy duty pot on the stove.
  • Add the Sugar and milk and stir
  • Continue stirring over medium-high heat until it boils
  • Reduce heat to medium and boil while stirring constantly for 5 minutes
  • Quickly Add Peanut Butter, Marshmallow Creme, Vanilla, Cocoa, and Nuts (optional)
  • Stir until well combined (Again, do this quickly before it sets up)
  • Pour into a greased 13×9 pan (for easy clean-up and removal, you can line your pan with aluminum foil)
  • Let cool and then cut into squares

Homemade Bread Stuffing Recipe

Homemade Stuffing Recipe
Homemade Bread Stuffing Recipe

  • 3/4 cup margarine or butter (To cut calories, I use 1/2 cup)
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 9 cups dry bread cubes
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. poultry seasoning
  • 1-2 cups of chicken broth (or 2 bouillon cubes dissolved in 2 cups of boiling water)


  • Melt margarine in a large pot over medium heat.
  • Cook celery and onion in margarine for 2-5 minutes (depending on the size)
  • Remove from heat and add bread cubes, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning
  • Slowly add chicken broth and stir until you get a nice consistency. The dryer your bread crumbs, the more broth you will need.*

This is an EASY and FRUGAL side dish. Freeze leftover bread instead of throwing it away and once you have enough, use it for this recipe!  This is the only way I will use bread that has been frozen.  The other ingredients are also inexpensive so for only a few dollars, you can have delicious, homemade stuffing!

We make this Homemade Stuffing Recipe throughout the year – not just at Thanksgiving!

*If you are using this Homemade Bread Stuffing to stuff a turkey or chicken, do not use as much broth.

Easy Homemade Whoopie Pies Recipe

Whoppie Pies Recipe

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t love Whoopie Pies?  These delicious cookie sandwiches with a big glass of milk are to die for!  They also freeze really well.  My husband likes EXTRA icing on his whoopie pies so we either double the icing recipe or only use half the cookies (and freeze the other half).  When using the frozen cookies,  I simply thaw them on the counter and make a fresh batch of icing!

Have you ever wondered why they are called Whoopie Pies?  Food historians say that they  got their name when Amish women would bake these cookie sandwiches and put them in the farmers’ lunch boxes.  When the farmers would open their lunch boxes and find these yummy desserts, they would shout “Whoopie!”……I think my husband has the same reaction when I make these for him!

According to Wikipedia, Whoopie Pies are also called Black moons, gobs (Pittsburgh region), black and white bobs or “BFO” for Big Fat Oreos.  I’ve always called them Whoopie Pies even though I’m from Pittsburgh!

The recipe I use to make these Easy Homemade Whoopie Pies was passed down from my mother-in-law.  I make these every year for my husband’s birthday!  For a Halloween treat, you could simply use a little orange food coloring in your icing!  Recipe makes approximately 4 dozen.  Keep these in the refrigerator.
