Super Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

Fran Miller Recipe

By Fran Miller TchrLdy71

I absolutely take no credit for this recipe. I found it floating around Facebook and it sounded so easy that I just HAD to try it. Guess what? It's not only easy, but it tastes delicious!

Mom always had trouble making any kind of fudge. It either didn't cook long enough & we ended up with "spoon candy" or it cooked too long & we had to let it melt in our mouths because we didn't want to damage our teeth. I guess Mom just never got the hang of testing a drop of candy in a glass of cold water. But we always loved the taste of yummy Peanut Butter Fudge. Like this easy recipe makes! =^..^=

Cook Time:
Cooking Method:
Stove Top

Ingredients

2 c
sugar
1/2 c
milk
1 tsp
vanilla extract
3/4 c
peanut butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Butter an 8 x 8" baking dish or any dish of similar size. I used a pie plate for this photo. Have all ingredients measured out before starting since you'll be stirring constantly once you start.
2
In a saucepan over MEDIUM heat, bring the sugar and milk to a boil, stirring constantly. Once it's bubbling all over, boil for EXACTLY 2 1/2 minutes. (I set the timer on the microwave. Really.)
3
Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla extract. Then stir in the peanut butter. Blend well, but quickly, until smooth.
4
Pour into buttered dish and smooth out. Cool before cutting into pieces.

    My mother has made her peanut butter fudge this way for over 50 years. I have a hard time too making fudge too but this recipe is a 'no fail' fudge as far as I'm concerned! Sometimes I use crunchy peanut butter instead of smooth.

    Hey, Diane & Jean! Thank you both for posting. Diane, let me know what you think after you make this. I think you're right about peanut butter appealing to the kid in all of us! Jean, I'm so happy you had "good" peanut butter fudge from your mom for all these years. I love your idea of using crunchy peanut butter, too. Don't you just love Just a Pinch? It lets me connect with really nice folks, like you two. Happy Cooking! =^..^=
