Peanut butter has been around forever, and I bet you had lots of peanut butter sandwiches when you were a kid just like I did. 🙂 If you have children of your own now, I’m sure you have this food item in your kitchen. Well, it’s child-friendly, plus you can utilize it for many things, not just for sandwiches. You can make vegan or regular ice cream from it, pancake batter, cookies, energy bars, brownies, smoothies, crepe, pudding, and a whole lot more.

Let’s see how it’s made.
This Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge recipe is ridiculously easy to make that even a small kid can make it. But when it comes to the taste, it’s a real winner.
3/4 c. peanut butter
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Butter a piece of foil that is slightly larger than a 9×9 square pan. Press the foil into the pan with the butter side up.
- Bring the sugar and milk to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Boil for about 2 to 3 minutes and stir occasionally.
- Remove the mixture from heat and add the vanilla extract and peanut butter. Stir until smooth and then pour into the pan. Let it set for about 1 to 2 hours.
It would be much easier to slice the peanut butter fudge if you remove it first from the pan.
So there you go with the easiest, tastiest, and creamiest Peanut Butter Fudge recipe ever. When compared to other fudge recipes, this one right here is the simplest. You won’t have to stress yourself out in looking for the ingredients because, for sure, you already have the needed items in your kitchen. You also don’t need to tire yourself out when it comes to stirring. Plus, it sets quickly. Your mixture might even be ready in just an hour.
Can You Freeze It?
Of course, you can! All you have to do is wrap it in plastic or parchment paper (double it as much as possible) and throw it in the freezer. It should last for up to 3 months. You can simply thaw and slice it later on.
Once sliced, you can expect your peanut butter fudge to last for a few days as long as it is stored in an airtight container. Keep in mind though that it may dry out, so it would be better to consume it within 5 days.
