Peanut Butter Fudge


Who knew  that making Peanut Butter Fudge would be this easy and rewarding.

The best part about this recipe is there is no candy thermometer.

This fudge is like the inside of those eggs you get for Easter. It reminds me of the inside of a peanut butter cup only better.

It is fluffy and has great peanut butter taste. This will definitely go on my cookie tray not just for Christmas, but for all my celebrations.

It can also be made in advance and frozen or stored in the refrigerator until given as gifts or just eaten straight away. If you freeze it, thaw it in the refrigerator for a couple of days before you eat it.

Peace be with you,

    Wow, that does look easy. I like the fact that it uses powdered sugar so there’s no grittiness.

    This recipe reminds me of my Mamaw, who made peanut butter fudge every Christmas. I’ll have to compare her recipe with yours. I like the easiness of your recipe, and since Mamaw hated to cook, I wouldn’t be surprised if hers was the same.
