Peanut Butter Fudge

Fudge can be really simple to make.  The most important step to being successful is timing.

Peanut Butter Fudge

This recipe like all fudge is incredibly sweet and rich. I cut it in really small bite size pieces cause one goes a long way.

  4. Refrigerate.
Recipe Type: Dessert

In a large saucepan over high heat add 4 cups of sugar.  I know it’s alot but hey we are making fudge, not some weird diet food.

To the sugar add the milk, (calcium, that’s fairly healthy)

Peanut Butter Fudge (3)

Butter, (umm……).  I melt mine to make it easier to measure.

Peanut Butter Fudge (4)

And vinegar.

Peanut Butter Fudge (5)

Mix them together well and bring everything to a boil.  Be careful, boiling sugar is really, really hot.

Peanut Butter Fudge (6)

Boil the sugar mixture for about 6 minutes.  The best way to tell if the sugar is ready is to drop a little bit of the hot mixture into cold water.  If it turns solid immediately it’s ready.  Remove from heat.

Peanut Butter Fudge (7)

Add the marshmallows.  I cut them in half so they would melt better.

Peanut Butter Fudge (8)

If you find the mixture is cooling too fast to completely melt the marshmallows then put it back on the stove to heat it up again.

Next add the peanut butter.  Yes you read the ingredients right…ONE POUND.  If it’s any consolation to your thighs I did use low fat peanut butter and the fudge still turned out great.

Add the vanilla.

Again the mixture will start cooling really fast so keep it warm on the stove to mix everything together well.

Peanut Butter Fudge (11)

Pour the fudge into your dish.  The recipe calls for 9″ baking dish but here I used a medium sized bar pan.  It gives you a thinner fudge that you can cut into smaller pieces. Or one giant rectangle to knaw on late at night.

Peanut Butter Fudge (13)

Spread it out evenly in the pan.  Resist the urge to start eating it with a spoon.

Peanut Butter Fudge (14)

The fudge is already beginning to cool so it’s a lot easier to cut it if you do it before it’s completely hard and crumbly.

Peanut Butter Fudge (15)

Oddly I turned my back and a piece went missing.

Peanut Butter Fudge (16)

Oh there it is!!!  Doesn’t it look fantastic.  Butter, peanut butter and sugar.  Can’t deny the wonderful team they make.  Refrigerate to set completely and enjoy.
