Peanut Butter Fudge

This will be hard for some of you to believe, but I have never made fudge before. I adore chocolate, but fudge is not my favorite treat, so I’ve just never tried. My mom, on the other hand, loves fudge. So when she was down last week, we made fudge. We debated between pumpkin pie, eggnog, and peanut butter fudge. This recipe won out because I thought it would be a little less sweet, and because it looked the easiest. (We were tired, OK.)

It was very simple, rich, and yummy. If you like peanut butter, you should try this. If you wrap it up tightly and store it in an airtight container, it will last a few days. (Probably longer, but ours was totally eaten up by then.)peanut butter fudge-recipe

    I’m in CO and found only 2 1/4 cups of powdered sugar was neccessary to prevent over drying…

    • Thanks for the tip! I guess maybe the amount of powdered sugar needed depends on climate, altitude, etc? That’s why I don’t make fudge very often. LOL!

  2. Recipe is wrong …..way too dry!
