Peanut Butter Fudge

Posted on November 9, 2013
Hi Everyone! Happy Weekend! It’s a cold, windy day here, the trees are beginning to lose all their colorful leaves and we are supposed to get our first snow next week. It seems like winter is almost here! And since the holiday season is just around the corner, I wanted to share this recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge with you today! If you will be making lots of goodies in the kitchen this year either to give away as gifts, to bring to parties, or for your family to enjoy, this is the perfect sweet treat to add to your list! If you are a peanut butter lover, you will love this super creamy fudge!
(Recipe from All Recipes)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Optional: add chopped unsalted peanuts for extra crunch
First, measure out all your ingredients, because you will need to have them on hand, as the fudge comes together pretty quickly. Place the confectioners’ sugar in your electric mixer bowl. Then, in a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat, making sure that it doesn’t burn. Once the butter has melted, add in the milk and brown sugar and whisk until you have a smooth mixture. Constantly whisking, bring it to a boil, then cook for another two minutes, continuing to whisk. Remove from heat, and add in the peanut butter and vanilla extract and stir until you have a thick, creamy sauce. Pour it into your electric mixer with the confectioners’ sugar, and mix until completely smooth and creamy. Pour into an 8×8 inch pan (line the pan with parchment paper) and let chill until the fudge is firm, then cut it into small pieces using a sharp knife. (*Note: I cut the recipe in half and made a smaller batch, and it was still a lot of fudge!)

Happy Cooking, Everyone!
