PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
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
- ⅛ 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!
