Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge



Peanut butter (creamy works best)

Powdered sugar

Butter or margarine

Vanilla extract (optional)


Choosing Your Method: You can make this fudge in the microwave or on the stove-top. Both methods work wonders, so it's up to your preference and convenience.

Melting the Ingredients: Combine your peanut butter and butter or margarine in a saucepan on the stove over low heat (or in a microwave-safe bowl if you're using a microwave). Stir occasionally until both are fully melted and combined.

Adding the Secret Ingredient: Slowly add in the powdered sugar. This is the game-changer. It'll dissolve perfectly into the mix, ensuring there's no grittiness but just smooth, creamy perfection.

Final Touches: Pour the mixture into a square dish lined with parchment paper. Smooth out the top with a spatula. Let it cool for a bit, then transfer it to the refrigerator.

Set and Serve: Once it's set, which usually takes about 1-2 hours, cut the fudge into squares and serve. Watch your guests' eyes light up with the first bite.

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. But let's be real; there probably won't be any left!


For a hint of added flavor, a dash of vanilla extract can be stirred into the mix.

Feel free to get creative! Mix in some chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or even swirl in some jelly for a PB&J version.

This peanut butter fudge is more than just a dessert—it's a declaration of love for simplicity and flavor. Give it a try, and you'll see just how quickly it disappears from the plate!
