Things are busy with Christmas just around the corner. Today the kids and I made fudge for the neighbors. It works great poured in any pan, but a holiday shaped tin just adds to the fun!
There are only four ingredients needed for this Peanut Butter Fudge and odd are, you’ve already got them all at the house!
Quick Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Bring sugar and water to a hard boil and cook for a minute. Remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla. Pour on a platter and cool.
A hard boil for the sugar / water mixture will look like the picture above. This is when you can stir the mixture and the bubbles keep coming back as quick as you can stir.
Here’s what your fudge mixture will look like when all four ingredients have been added in and it has been stirred well. It is now ready to pour into the pan of your choice.
This peanut butter fudge is SO easy to pour!
Here’s one of our peanut butter batches that we made today. We used the flexible Christmas Tree Mold. Once the fudge was cool, we were able to easily flip it out onto the Reynold’s wrap covered cardboard that we used so we could send it over to the neighbors. We placed the covered cardboard on top of the Christmas Tree Mold and quickly flipped it.
Since our Christmas Tree Mold had fudge cooling inside it, we made ourselves a batch of Peanut Butter Fudge in a regular pan so we could have thick pieces to snack on.
Never made fudge before? NO worries with this recipe, it is a sure fire recipe each and every time – enjoy!
