It’s the middle of summer and the last thing you are probably thinking about is making fudge. Am I right? It’s okay, I get you. You are probably one of those people who only make it around the holidays? You only eat pumpkin desserts in the fall, and carrot cake is only made at Easter.

If that’s you, then please PIN this recipe for Christmas. Ha! If you LOVE eating outside the box then stay put. Because this Maple Peanut Butter Fudge is fantastic and is meant to be eaten all year long.

No seriously. 5 minutes over the stovetop, no oven required, what’s not to love about this easy, delicious fudge recipe? No candy thermometer? No problem…this fudge recipe doesn’t require it.

Every beach vacation we go on, there is always a little mom and pop fudge store. You know the one I’m talking about. They have dozens of flavors, and you pick the size box you want, they cut you a hunk of fudge, and off you go. Only to accidentally leave that fudge in your blazing hot car while you are on the beach. Whoops.

Even though I know how to make fudge at home, I still have to buy fudge on every vacation.

I love the combo of maple and peanut butter. There is something so scrumptious and rich about sinking your teeth into a soft fudge.  On a recent vacation I saw this flavor combo and while I didn’t try it that time, I tucked it away in my brain (Okay fine, I wrote it down), knowing I would want to try it at home.

You guys. If you LOVE peanut butter you MUST try this.

I know I’ve made several peanut butter fudge recipes in the past…but this one is different. The maple adds so much flavor you’d be surprised.

And before you even ask….no, you may NOT substitute maple syrup for the maple flavoring in this recipe. The maple flavoring can be found on Amazon or in your grocery store near the vanilla extract. It’s worth picking up a bottle…because you’ll want it to make these Maple Iced Oatmeal cookies and this Maple Walnut Fudge.

  1. I love going in those little fudge shops for recipe inspiration. Ok, fine and for a piece of fudge…but I’ve never let it melt in the car.  It disappears too quickly for that!

  2. I love the maple and peanut butter combo- these would be so delicious with maple infused peanut butter for extra maple flavor! 

  3. This looks so, so enticing! And yes, maybe it is the heat of summer, but fudge is delicious any time of the year, so I don’t see what should stop us 🙂

    Love your site, can’t wait to make somce fudge for my niece who always said that it made her crazy. She always was in line fot the free samples on the board walk. in Wildwood, NJ. My plan is to to make several kinds for her but to make sure that my sweetie pies(her kids) get their own tins, after they have helped me to make and tasteto see if there is a genetic link into fudge related crazine
    I will wrap it up in a pretty tin and say just for you, you don’t have to share!! I hope that you know that a broken cookie, slice of cake, have no calories because once there is an opening, all of the calories just fall out. That is my story and I am sticking to it. Peace to fellow candy makers.

  9. I LIKE trying different recipes and enjoy seeing some of your to try.

    Do you have a peanut butter candy recipe? Could you do this one but leave out the maple and use vanilla instead?
