Creamy and smooth peanut butter fudge created using merely a couple of ingredients. It's dangerously good! No chocolate thermometer, no stove, only a couple of simple making this decadent fudge.
- 1 cup (250g) creamy peanut butter*
- 1 cup (2 sticks or 230g) unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 4 cups (460g) sifted confectioners' sugar*
- 3/4 cup add-ins, for example choc chips, peanuts, or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (optional)
- Line an 8-inch or 9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, departing an overhang around the sides to lift the finished fudge out.
- Melt the peanut butter and butter together inside a large bowl. I favor to slice the butter to create melting simpler. Steer clear of the microwave and stir the mix every minute until completely melted and smooth. Remove in the microwave and stir within the vanilla utilizing a large rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Add some salt if you need a salty/sweet fudge. Add some sifted confectioners' sugar and stir until completely combined. The mix is extremely, very thick and resembles cookie dough. If using any add-ins, fold them in to the fudge even though it is still warm.
- Press the fudge into prepared baking pan, smoothing the very best with the rear of a spatula or spoon. The very best is going to be somewhat oily. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and chill not less than 4 hrs or until firm. Reduce pieces.
- Store fudge within an airtight container within the refrigerator for approximately 7 days. Fudge might be frozen for approximately 2 several weeks. To thaw, simply transfer towards the refrigerator for just two-4 hrs.
- I suggest using commercially made creamy peanut butter, not homemade. If using natural, make certain the peanut butter isn't oily whatsoever. Crunchy peanut butter is alright.
- Sift confectioners' sugar before calculating. Weights can vary based on brand, make certain you measure exactly 4 cups. I made use of Domino.
