Peanut Butter Fudge

Peanut Butter Fudge

This is awesome! Perfect for fulfilling that Peanut Butter & Chocolate craving. The recipe is for the Peanut Butter Fudge. But we can do some extra to really bring this up.

Use crunchy peanut butter because when the bits of peanuts hit the hot sugar and milk. It caramelizes the peanuts and gives a really good flavor. You can also use Smooth too.

The Fudge by itself is Sugar and Milk Combined and Cooked for 2 Minutes and 30 Seconds over Medium-High Heat. The Peanut Butter with Vanilla is then mixed in really quickly and poured into a tray to cool down. Careful this stuff gets really Hot.

With Peanut Butter Cookies

A good variation is to make peanut butter cookies and using the dough. Spread over a pie crust and bake. Then Pour the Fudge over top. Cook the Peanut Butter Cookies till just done or a little before, because when the Hot Fudge goes on it will cook the Peanut Butter Cookie more.

With Chocolate

When you pour the Fudge over the Peanut Butter Cookies wait like 3-5 Minutes. Then Sprinkle as many Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips on top as you want. Wait a few minutes. The Hot Fudge will melt the chocolate chips and you will be able to spread the chocolate around in a nice even layer.

Huge Reese’s Pieces

Pour a little fudge into a muffin tray. Enough to make a small round disk-like Reese’s Pieces. Once cooled down get them loose from the muffin tray and set them aside.

Heat some Chocolate and Pour into the muffin tray with a brush move the chocolate around to coat the sides as well. Let Cool. You can optionally repeat this step to get a thicker Chocolate base and walls. Place the fudge inside. And Pour Chocolate over it. Creating Reese’s Pieces. Let Cool.

Cook the fudge for 2 minutes to get a softer fudge.
Add in 1 Tbl Graham Crumbs into the peanut butter mix.
