Jiff PB recipe by HALF?

I want to try this recipe. I am going to find the Peanut Butter extract first. Before I try this recipe I don't want to make a 13x9 pan (3lbs) half of it will be a good test. I have gotten in trouble with halfing before. Does anyone see anything in this recipe that would not just literally be cut in half?

Ingredients:
•Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
•3 cups sugar
•1/2 cup butter
•2/3 cupPET® Evaporated Milk
•1 2/3 cups Jif® Creamy Reduced Fat Peanut Spread
•1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow creme
•1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
1.LINE 13 x 9-inch pan with aluminum foil; spray with no-stick cooking spray.2.COMBINE sugar, butter and milk in large saucepan, stirring constantly on medium heat, until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.3.ADD peanut butter. Stir until well blended. Add marshmallow creme and vanilla. Beat until well blended. Spread in prepared pan. Cool. Cut into candy-sized pieces.
Yield: 3 pounds

LOL- You can help me out by buying lots of Chapstick, Gatorade (powder),
Coconut rum, Mott's juices, and any Cadbury product (which is the real easy part!)

Well.. you can make a fast peanut butter fudge that is very strong flavored

Dump butter and sugar in a pan with a touch of milk. Bring that to a boil and cook to just past soft ball stage..

Take it off the heat and stir in an the equivalent amount of peanut butter. the cool peanut butter will force it to start setting up immediately. It will be very stiff but very tasty.

Well that sounds easy and yummy.

How much butter and sugar would you suggest for say a 9x9 or so?

When you say equ. amount of PB do you mean the same amount as Butter and Sugar?

OK, these are guesses..
I would start with a stick of butter and 2 cups sugar, 1/4 cup milk and by the time it cooks down, 2 cups PB should be enough.. . I don't really know.. I just kind of cook it... usually in small batches since I can't leave it alone..

Oh, have the peanut butter set in a bowl so you can add it all at once and incorporate immediately. You have a VERY short pot time..

Adjust the volumes as you try a batch or two to your liking..
