Peanut butter fudge is Mav's favorite.
Peanut Butter Fudge

5 oz can evaporated milk
3 cups sugar
Cook for four minutes or until it reaches 234 degrees on a candy thermometer.
Remove from heat, add 1 package peanut butter chips, a teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 jar marshmallow cream.
Pour into a buttered 9 X 9 pan until firm.
* You can substitute chocolate chips for the peanut butter chips.

Again, one of Mav's favorites. He requested them this morning before 8:30 . . .
Remember the homemade mustard relish? The boys got off the bus early this week and said the bus driver had asked if I was giving out the mustard again. I had already planned on giving her chunky apple butter, but she may just get two gifts instead of one!
Do you enjoy receiving homemade gifts? I sure do! I enjoy giving them, but always wonder if the recipient feels the same way. What kind of homemade gifts have you given/received?
I've given fleece no sew blankets in school or favorite colors, baked goods, canned goodies like jams or jellies, mustards, etc. I've also made my own vanilla extract but because I couldn't find an affordable source for small glass bottles, I may not be able to give this. I've also given the brown sugar hand scrub and the peppermint hand scrub. I sure wish I knew how to make scarves because that would definitely be a gift!
