Easy Peanut Butter Fudge – Marshmallow Fluff Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

This Easy Peanut Butter Fudge has always been one of my favorite holiday sweet treats.  At Christmas time, I always make batches of it.

 You really can’t leave me around a jar of peanut butter.  It will be gone before you know it.

This recipe is one that my aunt used to make that I have adapted.  It sets quickly and is pretty much fool proof.Easy peanut butter fudge

Heck…anything with peanut butter is a favorite of mine. I’m a bit like Claire from Lost in that regard.

If you enjoy making fudge during the holidays, be sure to check out my tips for making perfect fudge to get great results every time.

One of the ways to tell if fudge will set quickly is to see if the recipe contains marshmallow cream. There is something about adding it to a fudge recipe that makes a believer out of those of you who don’t think they can make good fudge.  

This one sets VERY quickly!

The fudge texture is amazing. It is sweet and creamy with a lovely crispness that comes from perfectly set fudge. It will even stay set if it’s stored outside of the fridge.

In step 2 of your instructions it says to add the peanut butter with the sugar and evaporated milk... but then it says to add the peanut butter to the mixture at a later point when you are mixing in the marshmallow cream. Confused as to at which point the peanut butter is supposed to be added.

Hi April. Sorry for the confusion. There was a typo on the card. The peanut butter is added with the sugar and evaporated. Then the marshmallow creme is added and beaten well. I've fixed the recipe card.
