Cake Frosting Fudge Recipes

October 24, 2005

Peanut butter fudge made with cake frosting and peanut butter.A huge thank you to a wonderful thrifty member. She sent a no bake, bake sale recipe for fudge. It was one cup of peanut butter and one tub of pre made frosting. I made it this weekend.


Microwave the peanut butter (I used chunky) for one minute add triple chocolate frosting and microwave for another minute, then I added cashews. Stir and pour in a wax paper lined dish. Yes, it took two minutes, was a huge hit and will be a staple for gifts in the future. Don't pass up this excellent recipe. Thank you for sharing this with all of us!

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

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 real 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.

This recipe is so easy that my husband made all the fudge this year with this recipe, trying many different combinations. We make homemade fudge and give to friends every year. The one that he made that is my favorite was with white chocolate chips, vanilla frosting, 1 teaspoon coconut flavoring and 1 cup of flake coconut.


Remove the labels from the frosting cans, wash, dry thoroughly, and replace the label with bright Christmas wrapping paper. Fill cans with cut pieces of assorted flavors of fudge for gift giving. Perfect gift for the mailman, paperman, favorite bank teller, etc. You get the picture.

I have had success using Allrecipes. It recommends an 18 ounce jar of peanut butter and a container of frosting

Yes you will need a tub of frosting but the amount of peanut butter you add will also depend on you. The reason you see people saying 1 cup and other saying 16 ounces is because they like it to have a more peanut butter taste.


I would start of with the 1 cup of peanut butter and go from there. Mix it well and you can always add a little more if you do not feel it has the right amount of peanut butter for your taste.

I used a 16oz jar of pb and microwaved for 30 seconds, and did the same with a can of chocolate frosting. I then combined the 2 in a bowl, mixed, and poured in a pan to cool. Delicious!
