While I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, sometimes it’s nice to have that pure, unadulterated peanut butter flavor.
To make Peanut Butter Fudge, you’ll bring 1 1/2 sticks of butter (I use salted butter), 3 cups of sugar, and some evaporated milk to a boil in a saucepan. Boil for 5 minutes while stirring continuously. Remove from heat and stir in 1 bag peanut butter chips, 1 jar of marshmallow creme, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir until smooth and quickly pour into an 8 or 9-inch square pan lined with aluminum foil.
Refrigerate until set and then cut into squares. Peanut Butter Fudge can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container.
Tips for making Peanut Butter Fudge
Instead of using peanut butter, this recipe uses peanut butter chips. You can find them in the baking aisle with the chocolate chips.
