Tips & Tricks

  • For best results, do not use a natural peanut butter. It can separate and prevent the fudge from holding together. You can use crunchy peanut butter if you prefer it over creamy, but the texture won’t be as smooth.
  • For a delicious chocolate and peanut butter combo, top this fudge with some chocolate chips or chopped peanut butter cups after pouring it into the baking pan.
  • Be sure not to overcook the milk and sugar mixture. This can cause the fudge to have a dry and crumbly texture.

How Do I Store Peanut Butter Fudge?

Store any leftover fudge in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 weeks. You can also refrigerate it but be aware that this could dry it out.

Can I Freeze it?

Yes – fudge freezes really well. Wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag, and it should keep for up to 3 months in your freezer.

    How much sugar, milk and peanut butter do use

    1. Hi Nancy,
      If you go to the recipe card at the end of the post, you can find all that info. There’s also a jump to recipe button at the top of the post if you want to get there quickly. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂

  2. Would a non-dairy milk work in this recipe?

    1. I haven’t tried it but I don’t think it would work as well. It would probably change the texture of the fudge too much.

  3. Kids loved it,so amazing an quick Thankyou so Much****

    1. So glad it was a hit! Thanks for sharing 🙂
