Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

I need an easy recipe for peanut butter fudge. Thank you. Love that fudge.



Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

This is the easiest, fastest and most delicious fudge.


Ingredients and Directions

Put one 12 ounce bag of Reese's peanut butter chips in a glass bowl, spread them out so that they are not all in the middle of the bowl and they will melt easier. Cook in microwave for 1 and 1/2 minutes. Take out and stir, then stir in one can vanilla frosting (not whipped), stir really well and put back in microwave and cook for 1 and 1/2 minutes. Take out, add 1 teaspoon vanilla and pinch of salt, and stir. Put in a 8x8 inch or 9x9 inch buttered pan. Cool in refrigerator for 20 minutes, cut and eat.

More variations of Fudge, you may add:

  • 1/2 - 1 cup of chopped nuts to any of the variations
  • Chocolate chips/chocolate frosting (this is for the die-hard chocolate-lovers)
  • Peanut Butter chips/chocolate frosting (tastes like Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
  • Chocolate chips/vanilla frosting (not as chocolately)
  • Mint chocolate chips/chocolate frosting (tastes like Andes mint)
  • Cherry chips/chocolate frosting (tastes like a chocolate covered cherry)
  • Vanilla chips/any flavor frosting
  • Milk chocolate chips/coconut
  • pecan frosting

Walmart seems to have all the different kinds of chips, in the baking aisle.

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

This recipe is so much fun and so easy to make that my husband made 12 batches of it to give out for Christmas to friends. He used his imagination and made many different kinds. My favorite was the coconut fudge. For this one, he used white chocolate chips, vanilla frosting, 1 teaspoon coconut flavoring, and about 3/4 cup of coconut. It was fabulous.

He saved the frosting mix containers, covered them with Christmas wrap and filled them with an assortment of the fudge, and popped a stick-on bow on the lid. This is something even the kids could do.

This one is by far the easiest and it's dairy free. I get a lot of compliments from this, it tastes a lot like the inside of a Reese Peanut Butter Cup.

Go to the grocery store and get some Marshmallow Fluff (Marshmallow Cream), there is a recipe on the side and it is delicious. Fluff is part of the recipe so it's also convenient. (01/06/2009)
