We had a killer (pun intended) time at this week's Fluff n' Fudge Book Club as we discussed The Legs Murder Scandal by Hunter Cole. This chilling account resurrects the story of Ouida Keeton, a.k.a. "Mississippi's Lizzie Borden". The story that rocked 1935 Laurel, MS has been largely forgotten. If you missed it, click here to request a copy!
Now as for the fudge, it was simply to die for (again, pun intended). Here is the recipe for Killer Crack Peanut Butter Fudge. Enjoy!
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 cup JIF peanut butter
1 7oz. jar marshmallow creme
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine sugar, butter, and evaporated milk in a heavy 2 1/2 quart saucepan. Bring to a full boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Remove from heat. Add the peanut butter, stirring until melted. Add marshmallow creme and vanilla; beat until well blended.
Spread in a buttered 9x13x2 inch pan. Cool at room temperature, then refrigerate. Cut into squares when firm.
Be sure to join us next time, October 17th @ 10:30, as we read The Lost Years by Mary Higgins Clark. You can get a leg up by requesting it here. As for the fudge, like the book, it's a mystery. Join us to find out!
