Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe (1)

I switch back and forth between creamy and crunchy peanut butter, it means you have nuts throughout adding a wonderful crunch. But if you like your fudge smooth just use regular creamy peanut butter. I’m thinking about making a chocolate peanut butter one too, not much better than the two together!

    hi ash, can I use margarine?


    • Ashlee Marie

      I am super anti margarine and I would never use it for baking and cooking.

    This fudge is amazing. Never in my 70 years have I had better peanut butter fudge. I used chunky peanut butter. Everyone at my thanksgiving table wants fudge for a Christmas present.


    • Ashlee Marie

      you just MADE my year! I adore this fudge and it’s so nice to hear that others do too!

    I live on the coast of Maine in an inlet. I assume this is sea level….? I have heard of “below sea level”, so I wonder. My candy therm (brand new) won’t go above 225. If I cook it any longer, it will burn. My temp is medium heat. (How I hate my electric stove!!) It still seems to set up, but I am still wishing the temp would go up to where you say! Any thoughts??????


    • Ashlee Marie

      remember the recipe is in Fahrenheit, not Celsius. the candy thermometer should go up to 400 degrees. I’d assume your sea level but it’s worth doing a water boil test to make sure. bring some water to a boil and the moment it boils note the temp. It should be 212 at sea level, anything different from 212 and use the difference to make make your adjustments.

    • Ashlee Marie

      I love this fudge, I’m so glad you enjoy it as well!

    This fudge is wonderful and everyone who tried it liked it 🙂 I would like to add chocolate and make a chocolate peanut butter fudge but don’t know how much chocolate to use and what kind?


    • Ashlee Marie

      you could do a thin layer of this fudge then a thin layer of chocolate fudge, or you can pull out part of this mixture while it’s warm an add chocolate to it then swirl together
