This Peanut Butter Fudge is so silky and smooth it melts in your mouth. It’s easy to make and only requires four ingredients to produce a fool proof easy peanut butter fudge that is absolute perfection!

The perfect peanut fudge must absolutely be silky and smooth. There’s nothing worse than a grainy peanut butter fudge. This recipe is absolutely fool proof and is made in the microwave for a perfectly smooth peanut butter fudge every single time.

  • How to Store Fudge:

    Fudge should be stored in an airtight container. I like to use a plastic storage container or a resealable plastic bag, but you can also wrap it in aluminum foil. Fudge can be stored at room temperature, but will last longer when stored in the fridge. It will stay good in the fridge for about 3 weeks.

  • How do you make microwave fudge?

    All of the ingredients can be combined directly in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Microwaving for longer periods of time, or for too long will result in burnt chocolate that becomes grainy and difficult to work with. The ingredients will continue to melt outside of the microwave as you stir them so it is best to simply stir until melted once only small lumps remain.

  • Can I add peanuts for a crunch peanut butter fudge?

    Yes! You can stir peanuts into this peanut butter fudge recipe to create a crunchy bite. Add 1/2 cup of roughly chopped peanuts into the fudge mixture just before pouring into your pan to refrigerate.

PRO TIPS: It’s absolutely vital to use sweetened condensed milk to create perfectly smooth fudge. It works every single time and provides the perfect level of sweetness.  Use a high quality white chocolate in this recipe for best results as well.

Hi from Australia,

I am new to cooking and was wondering if this can be made without peanut butter or will I have to adjust the recipe to suit?

Cheers
Steph

Substitute peanut butter with 12 oz of semi sweet chocolate chips for chocolate fudge.

Steph, try almond or cashew butter if peanut butter isn’t agreeable

For years (about twenty!!!) I have been testing recipes for peanut butter fudge in an effort to replicate one a co-worker made, under a well guarded secret recipe. I have finally found it! This is the one! The taste and texture of this peanut butter fudge is simply superior, and I could not be more thrilled to have found it. Thanks! My hunt is finally over.

Thanks for this simple, easy, and delicious recipe! Thanks for all your recipes…they are never complicated, they use common everyday ingredients, and my families always ask them to be repeated! And, the videos give me a visual example of how to do it. I appreciate your work. Mary.
