Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe: Sweet, Dense, and Indulgent
This peanut butter fudge recipe defies the norm, serving a crowd (it makes more than 60 servings!) and taking under 15 minutes to prep.
Oftentimes the words “simple” and “dessert” aren’t found in the same sentence. To many, a sugar fix entails grocery store shopping, preparing, mixing, baking, waiting, and then finally noshing. This recipe makes it easy to get in a deliciously rich and dense dessert without the labor.
There is nothing healthy about this fudge recipe, and that’s perfectly okay. Balance is key, and sometimes, all you want is the real deal – real sugar, real milk, real indulgence. Each bite of this peanut butter fudge recipe is a simple dose of sweet satisfaction that will settle your cravings and top off your dinner meal with a joyful essence. Keep your serving level to one or two squares and you really won’t be doing any harm at all.
This peanut butter fudge recipe is children-approved, foolproof and a definite crowd pleaser. It homes in on peanut butter and its universal appeal, but you could just as easily swap in any nut butter you like, such as almond, cashew, pecan, or a mixture of various nut butters.
If you want to improve presentation a bit and add in some more exciting flavors, get creative! My suggestion: drizzle melted white or dark chocolate over and sprinkle chopped M&Ms atop the fudge squares. The sweeter, the better!
Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe
Makes more than 60 servings
Grease an 8-inch square pan with butter and set aside.
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the sugar and milk to a boil. Let boil for 3 minutes before adding in peanut butter and marshmallow cream. Mix. Once evenly combined, pour the mixture straight into the square pan.
Place the pan into the refrigerator and let sit there for an hour or two to set. Once set, cut into small squares and serve!
