Peanut Butter Fudge Drops?

The other day I was in the mood to bake. I wanted something that was easy and wouldn’t make a huge mess. I decided to look at a cook book my MIL gave me a couple years ago. The cook book was a fund raiser that the high school did. It’s full of lots of great recipes – especially desserts! So I found a recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge and decided I needed to make it.

Well, I forgot I suck at making any sort of fudge or candy. Please see this example. Maybe my mixture wasn’t at the soft-ball stage or maybe it was too humid out. Whatever the reason, I didn’t end up with peanut butter fudge. My fudge never set and I ended up with Peanut Butter Fudge Balls/Drops/Spoonfuls/Forkfuls. I even tried to freeze it so I could maybe get a picture of a square that looked like fudge is supposed to. No Luck.

It still tastes mighty yummy, I'm just disappointed it didn't set.
