Tasty Thursday: 15-Minute Peanut Butter Fudge

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!
