This recipe always makes me think of the Holidays and my Grandfather. I remember he decided one weekend to make something sweet and tried a couple of recipes before he got this one right. The first one he tried had chocolate and marshmallow creme in it and it turned out like soup! It was pretty awful but we all had a laugh about it. That failed fudge soup recipe that weekend is one of my more vivid childhood memories. Grandpa kept trying and finally hit the ball out of the park with this peanut butter fudge recipe. Because my kids and I are definite peanut butter fans, this easy to make five ingredient fudge is one of our favorite melt in your mouth decadent treats. It has become a Holiday tradition in my family and I’m excited to share it with you.
You will want to use a candy thermometer to get this recipe just right. I use a Taylor Candy and Deep Fry Stainless Steel Thermometer that I purchased from Amazon.com (I pretty much order EVERYTHING from Amazon). I love the way these yummy little fudge bites melt in your mouth so I use creamy peanut butter. If you prefer some crunch, crunchy peanut butter will work too. This fudge can be served at room temperature but I prefer it refrigerated as indicated in the recipe. Serve with a glass of ice cold milk and enjoy! I hope this recipe becomes a traditon for your family as it has in ours.
Fudge makes a great gift! The fudge in this recipe can be packaged in decorative tins or cellophane bags and given as Holiday or host gifts.
