Simple Peanut Butter Fudge

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 5 mins

I like this recipe because it is simple and doesn't require the 'soft ball' technique. I picked it up online somewhere a few years back and my family loved it. They always ask around Thanksgiving when I am going to make my peanut butter fudge.


  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add brown sugar and milk and bring to a boil for about 2 minutes being sure to continuously stir mixture throughout.
  3. Remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla stirring until smooth.
  4. Place confectioners sugar in large bowl and pour heated mixture over top and mix until smooth.
  5. Pour into 8 x 8 dish and let chill.
  6. Chill until firm and cut into pieces. Makes about 15 servings depending on your cutting technique.

A very simple recipe for rich fudge, you would think you worked much harder to make it. The only thing I would do differently next time, is that I would sift the confectionary sugar while I was measuring it. Thanks for a great fudge.

Yummy! Really enjoyed this fudge. I added a hand full of peanuts when I added the vanilla and peanut butter. Really rich so cut into 25 smaller pieces. Thanks for posting! Made for New Kids on the Block Tag.
