Ingredients: 

Chocolate Layer:
3 cups sugar
 
12 T. butter (1 ½ sticks)
 
⅔ cup evaporated milk (not
sweetened condensed)
 
1 package (12 oz. or 2 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
 
1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow fluff
 
1 t. pure vanilla extract
Peanut Butter Layer:
3 cups sugar
 
12 T. butter (1 ½ sticks)
 
⅔ cup evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed)
 
1 cup peanut butter
1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow fluff
 
1 t. pure vanilla extract

Directions:

Line a 13X9 inch pan with foil, letting the edges extend over the sides. Butter the foil and set aside.  Make the chocolate fudge:  In a medium heavy bottom saucepan over medium heat, melt the sugar, butter and milk, stirring constantly.  After the mixture begins to boil rapidly, until a candy thermometer reads 234°F.  I usually set a timer for 3 minutes once it starts boiling, and remove it from the heat when the timer goes off. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate, marshmallow fluff and vanilla, stirring until well combined.  Pour into prepared pan, spreading into an even layer. Immediately cover warm fudge with plastic wrap, placing the plastic wrap directly on the fudge. This will prevent it from developing a hard or crunchy top.

Again, place plastic wrap directly on top of peanut butter fudge and set aside and allow to cool at room temperature. Cut into small squares and serve.
