Peanut Butter Puzzle Fudge

READY IN: 50mins




  • Line a 9” x 13” deep baking pan with baking parchment.
  • Place the sugar and milk into a heavy based saucepan fitted with a sugar thermometer and heat gently, giving it a stir from time to time until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Keep heating until the mixture starts to bubble rapidly. Boil for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly until it reaches soft ball stage on a sugar thermometer (240F). You can also test this by dropping a little of the mixture into a cup of cold water using a teaspoon If it forms a ball and is soft to the touch then it is ready. It is very important to get to this temperature otherwise your fudge will not set.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and beat well until smooth and thick. Pour into the prepared tin and leave to cool completely, preferably overnight.
  • Turn the fudge out onto a board and cut into the required shapes.
  • Melt the coloured candy melts in the microwave, one at a time, stirring until smooth. Add a little vegetable shortening to make them thin enough to dip the fudge into.
  • Dip the fudge shapes into the candy melts and leave to set on a wire rack.
  • Melt the black candy melts and scoop into the small piping bag. Pipe lines onto the fudge to separate the blocks. Leave to set.
