Peanut Butter Fudge

I've always used my Mom's recipe through the years to make peanut butter fudge but I found one that I like better than my Mom's!  (Shhh, don't tell my Mom hehe)  I got it out of my 1989 Tennessee Mountain Home Cooking Cookbook and tried it for the first time tonight and its great.
