Let's Make It
Line 9-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Bring sugar, butter and milk to full rolling boil in large saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook 4 min. or until candy thermometer reaches 234°F, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
Add peanut butter and marshmallow creme; stir until completely melted. Add nuts and vanilla; mix well.
Pour into prepared pan; spread to evenly cover bottom of pan. Cool completely before cutting into 1-inch squares.
Use Your Microwave
To prepare in the microwave, microwave butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH until melted. Add sugar and milk; mix well. Microwave 5 min. or until mixture begins to boil, stirring after 3 min. Stir well, scraping down side of bowl. Microwave 5-1/2 min., stirring after 3 min. Let stand 2 min. Add chocolate and marshmallow creme; continue as directed.
If you are only able to purchase a large (12-oz.) can of evaporated milk, be sure to use only 2/3 cup so that the fudge will set. Refrigerate remaining evaporated milk for another use.
For every 1,000 feet above sea level, decrease final recommended cooking temperature by 2°F.
If you don't have a candy thermometer, bring sugar mixture to full rolling boil, then begin timing 4 min. while mixture continues to boil on medium heat, stirring constantly.
