Simply Delicious Peanut Butter Fudge

This is just some amazingly yummy fudge!  It was one of the treats we made this weekend and I absolutely loved it because it was pretty delicious when I made it Saturday night, but it’s gotten even better as it’s been in the refrigerator for a few days.  (How many recipes can you say that about?)  It also makes a ton, so it’s the perfect treat to make to share with friends and family this Christmas.  Here’s how to mix it up in your kitchen:

  1. Okay enough with the yummy treats. I think I am gaining 10lbs just by looking at the photos LOL.

  2. Laurie (a Different Laurie!) says:

    I love this idea. One of my bosses is allergic to chocolate and loves peanut butter cookies! I bet he’ll love this too! I was trying to figure out what else I could make him for xmas! I’ll make the other guys cookies and brownies and I can make him peanut butter cookies, sugar cookies and this fudge!


    • Laurie (love your name btw!) :), I promise he will LOVE this!!! It definitely like it best after a little refrigeration – it’s almost like a sweetened version of the inside of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Christmas Tree (not that I’ve eaten many of those lately to know . . . ) Let me know if he likes it!

  3. I have used this recipe for many years. Be sure to USE MARGARINE, not real butter. Margarine is key for perfect texture in this recipe. The use of real butter makes it turn out hard and dry.

  4. Why is it when I try to print from the print friendly version, it doesn’t print the ingredients? This is not the first time it has done this.

  5. I have also been making this recipe for years- so easy!

  6. Robyn – I think I figured it out (I’m so glad you said something!) It looks like when the ingredients were formated as “bullet points” they weren’t included, but when I change them to numbers they are – crazy! I changed them so it should work now. Thanks so much for letting me know!

  7. It printed just fine that time, thank you so much!

  8. I was wondering if I can use marshmellows instead of the marshmellow cream? Please let me know. I went to the store and got everything but the cream.:(

    • I’ve only tried it with marshmallow creme and I’m not sure it will work without it – if you try it let me know Kristen!

  9. Wow, was this recipe easy to make and there was oodles of it to share! I have never made fudge before, but may start now that I have this delicious recipe.

  10. I did it last night with Marshmallows and it came out great! 🙂 I followed the recipe, but instead of the marshmallow creme… I measured out 7oz of mini marshmallows. 🙂 It is very yummy and sweet!

    • So good to know Kristen! I’m glad it worked for you . . . I’ll try that next time (I hate spending so much on marshmallow creme!) 🙂

  11. I love fudge, and to add peanut butter, my mouth is watering! I’d love to have you share your recipe at Delicious Dishes link party at Balance Today.
