Loretta Lynn’s peanut butter fudge
3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cocoa
3/4 cup water
1 stick butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup smooth peanut butter
In a large bowl mix the sugar and cocoa well. In a saucepan bring the water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and add the cocoa mixture. Cook to soft-ball stage or about 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and add the butter and vanilla. Stir until the butter melts. Remove the pan from the heat and quickly add the peanut butter. Stir just until blended. Pour immediately into a greased 9-inch by 9-inch by 2-inch baking pan. Score 1-inch squares while warm. Let cool about 20 minutes and cut when firm. Makes 24 squares.
