PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE: You don’t even need a candy thermometer to make this Peanut Butter Fudge. All you need are a few simple items. Great for a simple treat!


Do you like sweets with peanut butter? I adore them so much! Many of you loved the easy chocolate fudge recipe I shared a few months ago. Today I’m going to show you a peanut butter version that tastes just as rich and good.

There are only five things you need to make this easy peanut butter fudge, plus a little salt and vanilla extract. It doesn’t even need a candy thermometer and doesn’t need to be baked at all. You could easily just use a microwave to make this too. I like to make it on the stove.

I love this dish even more because I always have the ingredients on hand. You can even make half of this dish or all of it.


  • 1 cup (230 grams) unsalted butter, sliced into tablespoon-sized pieces
  • 1 cup (250 grams) creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  •  teaspoon salt
  • 3 and ½ cups (420 grams) powdered sugar


  • Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Put away.
  • Add the peanut butter and sliced butter to a large pot. Place the saucepan over medium-low heat and stir the mixture often until the butter and peanut butter melt and the whole thing is smooth.
  • Take it off the heat and add the salt and vanilla extract. Then stir it in. Whisk in one cup (120 grams) of powdered sugar at a time until everything is well mixed. Then, add the last ½ cup (60 grams) of powdered sugar and stir until everything is smooth.
  • Put the mixture in the baking pan that has been prepared and press it down hard to make a single layer. Make the top smooth, then put it in the fridge for at least two hours to chill.
  • Cut the fudge into pieces when it’s hard, and enjoy!
