Peanutbutter Fudge

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter 
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces 
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
  • 3 cups powdered sugar 
  • 1/2 cup Raw Peanuts, toasted and coarsely chopped 
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Grease 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with butter. Line pan with parchment paper allowing extra to overlap sides. Place peanut butter and butter in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until mixture begins to bubble. Stir peanut butter mixture. Microwave on HIGH 1 1/2 minutes. (Take precaution as mixture may bubble up sides.) 
  • Stir in vanilla extract. Add powdered sugar, stir until thickened and well blended. Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan. Sprinkle toasted peanuts over top; gently press into surface. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until set. 
  • Use edges of parchment paper to lift fudge from pan. Cut into squares. Place chocolate in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 1 1/2 minutes; stir every 30 seconds until melted. Transfer to small plastic re-sealable bag; secure top. Snip tip from one end of bag. Gently squeeze bag; drizzle chocolate over top. Allow chocolate to set; serve.


  1. Have you made this? Is it easy? I always thought fudge was hard to make, but this sounds so easy! I could make little Christmas gifts or something.

  2. I made it with soynut butter... It kinda tastes like Reeces... Although I think next time I'm going to make it I need drizzle it with more chocolate... Or maybe dip the squares in chocolate itself.
