This is one of the easiest fudge recipes. It takes only 4 ingredients and comes together in 15 minutes or less. The fudge has soft texture and is loaded with peanut flavors.
1CPeanut Butter preferably creamy
½TspVanilla Extract Optional
Grease 8 X 8 pan and keep it aside.
Take the sugar, milk and butter in a thick bottomed pan. Bring to boil over medium heat stirring to combine everything. Let it boil for 2 minutes. Keep stirring to prevent the sugar from caramelizing or sticking to the bottom. If you feel the heat is too much reduc e to low.
Turn off heat and add the peanut butter and vanilla extract, if using. Stir well until the mix is uniform. Stir to mix and pour into the prepared pan.
Let cool and slice – for a slightly harder version refrigerate and slice .
Most store brands of peanut butter have sodium added. When using no sodium peanut butter or making your own add a pinch of salt.
When making large quantities use a candy thermometer and heat the sugar mix to soft ball stage before turning the heat off.
Add the peanut butter as soon as you turn off the heat – do not let the sugar mix cool down .
The color of the fudge varies slightly based on the sugar used – I have used raw sugar hence the brownish fudge.
If the oil has separated from your peanut butter stir it back in before using.
