I am not lying when I say this Peanut Butter Fudge is probably the best fudge I have ever tasted. Rich, velvety, over-the-top fudge that is so simple to make, you may chuckle.
My daughter tasted this rich fudge at my house years ago and called me up the very next night for the recipe. She was unable to resist and had to make it immediately.
I gave her the recipe and she thought I was kidding. She couldn’t believe that there were only four ingredients. You wouldn’t believe that this fudge would be so rich and tasty given how easy it is to make.

Peanut Butter Fudge
With all the consideration we give chocolate fudge, I think the deliciousness of peanut butter fudge gets neglected.
Peanut butter fudge carries memories of my youth, noses pressed up against candy cases, choosing the perfect piece of fudge to buy and take home.
The perfect blend of sweet and creamy, remains a favorite for not only kids but adults as well.
Easy Peanut Butter Fudge
The key to making peanut butter fudge with the correct consistency is in the powdered sugar. It disintegrates into the fudge easily with no lumpiness at all.
You can melt everything in the microwave or on the burner. Anyway you make it, it’s alarmingly simple. Your kids are probably going to begin asking for this fudge on a regular basis.
Fortunately, this is a recipe that is simple enough for them to learn how to make all alone! In addition, with no stovetop cooking required, you can instruct them how to make this fudge without the fear of them burning themselves accidentally on the burners.
How to Make Fudge in the Microwave Oven
This recipe utilizes the microwave oven for melting all the ingredients together.
While I’m not typically an enthusiast of microwave cooking, nothing beats having the option to melt the ingredients to the ideal consistency in minutes. It just requires 90 seconds of cooking time to melt the peanut butter and butter to the correct consistency, in addition to a couple of minutes of mixing.
Add the powdered sugar to the other ingredients and mix well until the powdered sugar dissolves.
On the off chance that you don’t turn out to be a lover of the microwave, or don’t have one, you can simply dissolve the butter and peanut butter on a stovetop burner. It will simply require a couple of moments longer. Heat the ingredients over low-medium heat and mix prior to adding the powdered sugar.
I cut this fudge into 1” squares, which makes it perfect for a quick snack or to give as a gift. This fudge is perfect with an ice-cold glass of milk, a hot cup of coffee or a mug of hot cocoa!
