Peanut Butter Fudge

by aimee @ shugarysweets on August 19, 2012

Peanut Butter Fudge with a chocolate drizzle! So delicious and soft.
I couldn’t decide how I wanted to garnish this fudge. Even afterwards, both style’s held a special place in my heart, and my stomach. The chocolate and peanut butter drizzle on the first one is just a classic combination. 
But the peanut butter drizzle alone? It’s almost like a bag of reese’s pieces. No need to wait all year to enjoy fudge, why not whip up a batch of this today?!

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 3 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: 81 pieces

Ingredients

    For the Fudge:
  • 3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cup white chocolate morsels
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 7oz jar marshmallow cream
  • For the Drizzle:
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter morsels, melted
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels, melted

Instructions

  1. Line a 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper or foil. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat granulated sugar, butter, salt and heavy cream until combined. Bring to a ROLLING boil and stir continuously for 4 minutes (set your timer)!
  3. Remove from heat. Quickly whisk in white chocolate, marshmallow and peanut butter (I usually put these ingredients in my kitchen aid and whisk them for about 1-2 minutes). Pour fudge into prepared pan and refrigerate for 3 hours, until hardened.
  4. Remove from pan, remove lining. Cut into bite sized pieces. Drizzle with melted peanut butter, melted chocolate or both! Allow to set, about 20 minutes. ENJOY.

I seriously love peanut butter fudge, but have never made it myself. I think I’ll have to change that now! Btw, I love that you decorated the squares individually instead of doing it before you cut the fudge. My OCD is obsessed :)

I would love it if you would link up Martha Mondays, open now through Wednesday night!

Aimee! I wish I saw this fudge yesterday- a busy day at work kept me from blogging- bc I needed a peanut butter treat like this! I think the choc/pb swirl looks fab, but the all pb swirl steals my heart! Between this and your Cinnabon fudge, I feel like I need to make me some fudgy candy soon!!

This looks heavenly, Aimee! My husband and oldest daughter love fudge – and PB is their favorite. I’ve been wanting to make some at home for them, but recipes I’ve found just haven’t appealed to me. Yours, however, looks like one I want to try. It’s printed off!

Do you melt the white chocolate morsals before adding them to the mixure on the stove?What is your secret to making the drizzle? The chocolate was more of a slobber and the peanut butter just got smooshy. I’m not a wiz in the kitchen so I need more direction.

Thanks

Ps. It is still finger licking good!

aimee @ shugarysweets December 8, 2012 at 4:43 pm

Hi Ruthann,
I do not melt the white chocolate. Pouring the hot mixture over it, and then whisking it is enough to get it smooth!
As for the chocolate and peanut butter, Honestly I just melt them in separate bowls in the microwave (30seconds) put it in a ziploc, snip off the corner and drizzle. Have fun with it. Lots of practice helps!!!

Hi
I would love to make the peanut butter fudge. Does it turn out creamy, or pretty firm and sugary? I notice you time the boil, but do not use a candy thermometer and I think the cooking process will determine final results. Any hints or tips on this?
Thanks

Juli December 11, 2012 at 10:40 pm

I did not read through all the comments, so if my question is answered there….I apologize for asking…..

aimee @ shugarysweets December 12, 2012 at 7:19 am

The fudge turns out pretty firm. I don’t usually use candy thermometers. But if you bring your mixture up to a rolling bowl and allow to boil at the temperature for the given time, you should be good to go! I make this version of fudge all the time, no problems! Just make sure it’s a good ROLLING boil before starting your timer!

Do you mix all the ingredients in your kitchenaid? Or just the three before you add them to the hot mixture?

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets November 8, 2013 at 7:59 am

I put the three in the kitchenaid, then pour the hot mixture OVER those. Use the whisk attachment and mix them up until everything is melted and smooth (about a minute)! Pour into your pan, set and enjoy!

Just have a question I will be making this for gifts for christmas. I totally read it wrong and bought a boat load of peanut butter chips. Do you think the 3/4 cup peanut butter could be substitued for the peanut butter chips I bought in excess. Thanks.

Reply

Robyn December 18, 2013 at 1:02 pm

Would the fudge need to be kept in the fridge or can it be left out at room temp?
