Peanut Butter fudge with a twist

A friend recently shared her favorite recipe for peanut butter fudge.  I was eager to try some for Thanksgiving, but because I never have been good at following rules, I decided to put my own spin on it.  If peanut butter is good, then peanut butter with chocolate is even better right?  Right!

I used this recipe from, but made some changes based on other reviews of the original recipe. 

1/2 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups confectioners' sugar

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over confectioners' sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth; pour into an 8x8 inch dish. Chill until firm.

Once the fudge hardened, I spread the top with chocolate ganache (melt 3 T butter or heavy cream with 1/2 cup chocolate chips) and popped it back into the fridge to cool.  Chill until firm and cut into squares.               

There are no words to describe the goodness.  I think I felt the earth move...and this is coming from the girl who completely missed the earthquake last week here in Texas...didn't feel a thing, but this fudge moved me.

I guess I can say it's my own recipe...sort of.  I'm calling it Fudgey Peanut Butter Cup Goodness.  Clever hu?


  1. I'm definitely going to give this a try! It sounds wonderful!

  3. My mouth is watering!
    I definitely want to try this. Will need to make it sometime when my sugar-aholic daughter isn't home. Or I'm sure I won't get any of it! hahaha
