Peanut Butter Lovers Fudge

Since November is Peanut Butter Lovers Month I couldn't bypass my Dad's peanut butter fudge.  I made my first batch of peanut butter fudge when I was 12 years old and my Dad loved it so much it became a tradition.   This recipe is so easy peasey and if you're a peanut butter lover you'll be even more in love with just how easy it is to make.  So, lets get started.

What You Need

1 (14oz) can of good quality sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of your favorite creamy peanut butter
1 (12 oz) bag of white chocolate chips or 2 (6 oz) white baking squares chopped (which ever you like best)
3/4 cup chopped peanuts (I like to pop mine in the toaster oven for a few to toast them a bit)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (you can use Imitation but pure gives it a much better flavor)

Let's Make It!

  • Line either an 8 or 9 inch square baking pan with wax paper.  Make sure the paper extends over the edges of your pan
  • Heat the sweet condensed milk and peanut butter together in a heavy saucepan over medium high heat until just bubbly stirring constantly.  Remove from heat when it's bubbly and add your white chocolate, stir until smooth and immediately stir in nuts and vanilla
  • Pour your fudge mixture into your pan and using a rubber spatula scrape all of it out and spread evenly in your pan
  • Cover and chill for 2 hours or until just firm.  To remove fudge out of pan just life up on your edges of wax paper place on clean cutting board and cut into squares.

  • That's it!  Didn't I tell you it was easy peasey?  
  • Until next time, see you in the kitchen,
