I had a lot of fun making cookies and cream fudge and Nutella fudge. So I decided to tackle peanut butter fudge.
Before I had a chance to experiment, I came across this super easy recipe by Alton Brown.
It’s only four ingredients and doesn’t even use chocolate, which is what I had planned on doing.
This recipe takes only five minutes to put together. I did think they tasted too sweet. I might try to reduce the sugar next time or try experimenting using white chocolate and peanut butter.
Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge
8 ounces unsalted butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter (store bought)
1 pound powdered sugar
Combine the butter and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute and stir. Microwave for 1 more minute and stir again until mixture is completely melted and smooth. Add the powdered sugar to the peanut butter mixture and stir until batter is smooth. Spread into an 8 by 8-inch pan lined with parchment paper. Press another parchment paper on surface and use palms to smooth out top. Refrigerate for about 2 hours to let set. Cut into one inch squares with sharp knife. Keep uneaten portions stored in fridge.
