Hey Grandpa, What’s for Supper? – Candy Kitchen Peanut Butter Fudge

If you have a sweet tooth like I do you definitely want to give this recipe a try.  I actually make this frequently if I need a small gift, like a hostess gift or a Christmas gift for a neighbor.  But you might want to save a few pieces for yourself.  Hide it from the family in the freezer if you must!

The story behind this recipe is that former U.S. Rep. Todd Platts used to make this fudge and share it with former President George W. Bush, who couldn’t get enough of it.  Please see the story on the witf.org website from April 1, 2015 for the full story which was originally published in the York Daily Record, authors Flint McColgan and Gordan Rago.
