Oh my goodness, this has to be the best peanut butter fudge I have ever tasted and it is so easy to make, it takes about 15 minutes.¬† My family has been using this recipe for as long as I can remember.
My mom originally got it from my kindergarten teacher when I was younger…it might as well be a family recipe now.¬† I whipped up a couple batches this year to send to family and friends out of state.¬† I hope they enjoy it as much as I do each year.
15 Minute Peanut Butter Fudge
- 2 Sticks of Butter
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 c. of creamy peanut butter
- 1 lb. box of confectionery sugar
Butter a baking dish on all sides, set aside.¬† In a pan, melt 2 sticks of butter.¬† Once the butter has melted, stir in 1 cup of peanut butter.¬† Remove pan from heat.¬† Add 1 tsp. of vanilla extract to peanut butter and butter mixture.¬† Gradually whisk in powdered sugar until the peanut butter mixture gets thick.¬† Pour into the baking dish and refrigerate until fudge is hard.¬† Enjoy!
* The first batch of fudge I made I used the whole box of confectionery sugar.¬† It was not as peanut buttery as I like it.¬† The second batch I used approximately 3/4 of a box and it was perfect!¬†
