Fudge is a dessert that isn’t just made around the holidays in my household. It’s the I-want-it-now kind of dessert! To be honest, I wasn’t a big fudge fan until I had peanut butter fudge. And now, there is no going back. This recipe is so easy since you don’t have to deal with any candy thermometers, few ingredients, and it’s super quick! This fudge is super creamy and delicious! It’s my personal favorite.
Peanut Butter Fudge
- 8 oz. unsalted butter
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 16 oz. confectioners’ sugar
Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper. Lightly grease with butter.
Combine the peanut butter and butter in a microwave safe bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Microwave on full power for 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave, stir, and microwave for another 2 minutes.
Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave. Add the vanilla and confectioners’ sugar to the bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until evenly combined. The mixture will become difficult to stir and will lose its sheen.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Place an additional piece of parchment paper directly on the surface of the fudge. Refrigerate until cool, at least 2 hours. Use a large knife to cut into desired size pieces. Store in an air tight container for up to 1 week.
