Peanut Butter Fudge


Homemade Peanut Butter Fudge is Easy

As a kid, I waited not so patiently for the holiday season for the Peanut Butter Fudge to be made.  About a week before Thanksgiving, I’d come home from school and it would be in the fridge, just waiting to melt in my mouth.  Of course, I’d sneak it every now and then, but during the holidays, there would always be a plate of fudge on the table to snack on.  While I like chocolate fudge, Peanut Butter Fudge is my all-time favorite.  When I found out how easy it is to make, it’s hard to keep it just to the holiday time, but I do, keeping it special for my family.

Three Ingredients for Homemade Peanut Butter Fudge

Peanut Butter Fudge is one of the easiest fudges to make.  There’s no boiling sugar, or waiting for a certain temperature.  It starts with softened cream cheese, a great base for many soft candies.  Your favorite peanut butter gives the candy it’s classic flavor.  I use Jif peanut butter because it’s what I grew up with and  my favorite, but you can use whatever peanut butter you like, even homemade.  Confectioner’s sugar rounds out the trio for Peanut Butter Fudge, making the creamy ingredients melt in your mouth and perfect for a smooth, delicious candy.  It’s an amazing combo that makes the best Peanut Butter Fudge I’ve ever had.

  4. Cut into squares and serve, or keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Peanut Butter Fudge as Gifts

I love making up extra Peanut Butter Fudge and giving it as gifts.  It fits nicely in pretty little tins, and goes well with not only other fudge flavors, but also with all kinds of cookies and cakes.  Peanut Butter Fudge is fantastic for cookie walks or bake sales too, just make sure to label it as containing peanut butter and check with the coordinator to see if they have a special section set aside for items containing the ingredient.  Better safe than sorry with that allergy!  Make a little bit of heaven and have Peanut Butter Fudge on your cookie buffet.
