This is a very easy sauce for ice cream or cakes as an extra rich option! It is from my grandmother who used to make this when they were kids. Tastes like homemade fudge!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup milk must be whole milk for fudge (1/2 cup to make fudge)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla


  1. In medium saucepan add milk, sugar, and cocoa. Bring to a frothy boil at medium heat for about 5 munutes or until the consistency of the ingredients appear smooth. Lower heat and SLOWLY add vanilla and peanutbutter. Be careful, the vanilla can make it spatter! Bring back to a boil for about 5 minutes, cool a bit and serve. We serve for our kids with pound cake. If you want to make fudge with this recipe, just add 1/2 cup of the milk instead of a whole cup , the rest is the same, and at the end pour on wax paper and cool to form a harder fudge. Fudge is a bit tricky on the timing. Sometimes doesn't set up as well if the time/temp is not right on.
