I was craving fudge on Sunday, specifically peanut butter. So I read through a few recipes and came up with this one. The original recipe was taken from All Recipes and I modified it a bit. Anyway, it’s just too damn good and easy not to share. I don’t have any photographs because my card reader seems to be broken. Forgive me for that. But it’s super easy. I promise.
What you will need
- 8 x 8 square pan
- wax paper (optional)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups powdered sugar
Fill mixing bowl of KitchenAid with powdered sugar. Set aside.
Melt butter in your saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and milk. Stir often. Let the mixture boil and after it boils let it go for 2 minutes. It will bubble up quite a bit.
After 2 minutes or so, remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla extract. Stir up until mixed well.
Pour liquid over powdered sugar.
Using the KitchenAid beater attachment, mix that until all the powdered sugar is incorporated.
Spoon into your square pan, evening out as much as possible. Cover the surface with wax paper. It’s going to be oily. That’s normal. Refrigerate. You’re done!
Oh my goodness, there are none. This recipe could not be any simpler. I had fudge within the hour.
I bet adding some peanuts or chocolate chips to this recipe would be divine. If you try it, let me know.

I’m still pregnant. Duh. Last night I had this weird sensation that I was going to go into labor. Obviously that didn’t happen. I’m not sure how much more my pelvis can take. It feels really bruised and I find walking more and more impossible. Granted, it doesn’t help I had to dig my car out of an igloo of snow yesterday. Yeah, that was fun.
But enough listening to me bitch; go make some fudge!
That sounds delicious! And easy! I like easy desserts & treats. Thanks for sharing.
I just may make this this afternoon! Thanks for the recipe and best wishes for the remainder of your pregnancy and beyond!
I’ve seen other recipes that use sweetened condensed milk for this; it seems to cut down the steps and ingrediants even more.
Hey make Toby do the digging, take advantage of your pregnant state while you still can :)
I made this fudge and it was AMAZING! Thank-you for the recipe!!! I am also pregnant and this hit the spot. I added some chocolate chips (I chilled them in the freezer first so they wouldn’t melt too much, but still did a little, left a lovely swirly pattern). It was like being in Reeces Pieces heaven. This was my first time making fudge and it was a success…thanks!
Thanks for the recipe!
This fudge was delicious! We all loved it. Big time. Next time I’ll add chocolate chips (good idea from a reader to freeze them beforehand). Thanks!
Love the picture of your big boy holding your little one :)
