Super Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

Hey Guys!!

One week from today is Christmas!!!

Today I have the easiest fudge recipe for you if your looking for a last minute sweet treat!

When I was in high school I worked for this adorable little gift shop and they sold the best fudge. The peanut butter was my favorite flavor and for years after the owners retired I tried to find a recipe that came close.

Alton Brown’s Peanut Butter Fudge recipe comes pretty close and it’s so easy!!! I make this every year during Christmas at the request of my youngest son and little brother.


Peanut Butter Fudge

Recipe Courtesy of Alton Brown


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, plus more for greasing pan
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound powdered sugar


Combine the butter and peanut butter in a 4-quart microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 2 minutes on high.

Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. (Use caution when removing this mixture from the microwave, it will be very hot.)


Add the vanilla and powdered sugar to the peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon.


The mixture will become hard to stir and lose its sheen.


Spread into a buttered 8 by 8-inch pan lined with parchment paper.


Fold the excess parchment paper so it covers the surface of the fudge and refrigerate until cool, about 2 hours.

Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
