This confection is usually appreciated for any occasion or as a gift. This page contains peanut butter fudge recipes.
This is a guide about making peanut butter fudge using vanilla frosting. A new twist on fudge making starts with packaged cake frosting.
This fast and simple recipe yields tasty peanut butter fudge with a surprising "nut-like crunch" that will confound all who try to guess what it is! It is also very inexpensive to make, because it does not require butter or nuts!
Mix sugar and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. Place all remaining ingredients in a bowl. Pour hot mixture over them and mix thoroughly. Pour into a buttered or sprayed pan (I use 2 pie tins). Let cool in refrigerator. Cut and enjoy! Ask folks to guess what makes the subtle crunch!
Note: I have stirred in a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips just before pressing into the pan, for a nice change. It makes a marbled look and has a flavor similar to a peanut butter cup.

Does anyone out there have a tried and true peanut-butter fudge recipe using marshmallow cream? Also, how I can freeze it?
Thank you very much.

Easy and good Peanut Butter Fudge!
2 Cups sugar
1/2 Cup milk
1 1/3 Cups Peanut Butter (I use crunchy)
1 - 7 oz. jar Marshmallow Fluff
Into a large saucepan, pour milk and sugar and bring to a boil for 3 minutes stirring constantly so it doesn't burn.
Take off burner and add the peanut butter and marshmallow fluff. Mix well (until it's smooth and creamy... your arm will feel like falling off!) and pour into a buttered 8" pan. Chill until set and cut into squares.
This recipe came from my step-mom and it's the only peanut butter fudge my hubby will eat! Very rich and very tasty! Doesn't last more than a couple of days with just myself and my husband to eat it... he eats most of it!

Robin, here in Ohio we call these "Buckeyes" because Ohio is known as the Buckeye State. They are delicious. When we dip them in chocolate, we don't cover them completely, we leave a bit of the peanut butter showing and they look just like buckeyes that we get off the trees. They're especially popular in the fall when we have a huge rival football game between Ohio and Michigan. Thanks for sharing. (12/11/2009)
Line a 13x9x2 inch pan with foil and grease the foil with a teaspoon of butter; set aside.
In a large heavy saucepan, combine the peanut butter, cheese and remaining butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until melted. Remove from the heat. Gradually stir in confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract until blended (mixture will be thick). Spread into prepared pan. Chill for 2 hours or until firm.
Using foil, lift the fudge from pan. Discard foil; cut fudge in 1-in. squares. Store in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
Very different but delicious

Mix Fluff, PB and Vanilla in warm metal bowl. Mix sugar and milk in large sauce pan and bring to boil. Soft ball stage 234- 238 degrees F. Remove from heat. Let cool to 175 F before mixing with fluff, pb and vanilla. Beat until mixture becomes dull. Pour into buttered 6 x 10 pan.
The temperature of the mixture will determine the consistency of the fudge. At 234, the fudge will be softer, at 238, the fudge will be firmer. (03/09/2007)
