  • 3/4 cup peanut butter

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 16 ounces brown sugar

  • 3 1/4 cup powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract


  • Take a medium-sized, deep bottomed saucepan and add butter, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla extract to it. The saucepan should be deep else; the liquid will bubble up and overflow the pane.
  • Cook the syrup on low flame and keep stirring until the butter melts and sugar dissolves.
  • Now you can change the flame from low to medium and mix continuously until the syrup begins to boil. Let the mixture boiling for at least 3-4 minutes.
  • At this step, turn off the flame and add the peanut butter; stir until the butter is melted and soft. Combine this mixture with the powdered sugar in a large bowl and mix it with the help of a whisk. Mix until the mixture is well incorporated and has begun to cool.
  • Take an 8X8 inch pan or baking dish and grease it with butter or line with buttered foil.
  • When the fudge sets around the edges of the bowl, shift the fudge blend to the prepared pan and then press it. Take a spoon and spread it smoothly. Let it rest for 3-4 hours or refrigerate it for 2 hours. When the fudge is firm, remove the foil and slice it. Cut into one-inch squares.


  • Use powdered or confectioner’s sugar to make peanut butter fudge with the right consistency. It makes grit-free fudge by dissolving into the fudge easily and smoothly.
  • Regular peanut butter is better to make smooth peanut butter fudge, but if you desire to add a touch of crunch to the fudge, go for the crunchy peanut butter or add some other nuts to make it crunchy and give a texture to it.
  • When the mixture comes to a boil, don’t leave stirring; otherwise, the fudge will get gritty.
  • When you cut the fudge into slices, grease the cake knife with a cooking spray to make clean slices. Clean off the blade of the knife with a wet piece of paper towel or cloth before cutting the next one.
  • Chill the fudge for the hours as directed in the recipe.  
  • To double the taste of the dessert, stir in marshmallow or chocolate before transferring the mixture to the baking dish.
  • You can freeze the leftover fudge in an airtight container for one week. When you have to serve it, let it come to room temperature.
  • If you want to make this fudge dairy-free, use coconut milk instead of cow milk.
