Super Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

Fran Miller


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! =^..^=

About 8-12 pieces


5 Min


10 Min


Stove Top


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

Directions Step-By-Step

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.
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.)
Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla extract. Then stir in the peanut butter. Blend well, but quickly, until smooth.
Pour into buttered dish and smooth out. Cool before cutting into pieces.
