2 Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge

2 Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge Great #frugal #holiday #dessert

 2 Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge is a long time favorite in our house! Over the years I have made this fudge for bake sales, family get togethers and for just to have around the house for a special treat.  Be sure to avoid cream cheese and whipped frostings, the fudge just doesn’t taste the same with those types of canned icings. I have used chocolate icing too, but I really prefer the plain old vanilla.

 This fudge is a perfect Christmas gift. I look forward to sharing it with the mail lady, Sunday School teachers, co-workers and anyone who drops in for a visit. Christmas is all about giving. Even if you don’t have lots of money to buy for others as special homemade treat is sure to warm someone’s heart.

    I love this recipe! I make it all the time! I have found that the fudge has a much silkier texture if you melt the peanut butter and icing separately, and then mix the two together. I line my glass pan with foil and then just pop out the whole thing to cut into pieces. Thanks for sharing!

    Just made this with chocolate icing & peanut butter….plus a few peanut butter chips (about a handful – seems to give it a bit firmer texture). The fudge on the spoon was Good=like a Reeses cup. waiting for it to harden & thinking I might be sorry I made this…it wont last long….my family loves Reeses cups!

    Hey i love your blog! The thing is… I don’t have a microwave (I know it sounds crazy) but, could I just heat the peanut butter and vanilla icing up on the stove top in a sauce pan?

      i’d be careful with direct heat, maybe try putting the ingredients in a bowl on top of a sauce pan of boiling water – like you would for melting chocolate. (Don’t let the water touch the bowl though)

    i sure wish I had come across your recipe yesterday… :-( I saw the same recipe on facebook and thought it would be something quick and easy I could do while the rest of the food was cooking… Only problem is, there was no mention of “not” using whipped or sour cream frosting…. Guess what I grabbed because there was no vanilla frosting left on the shelf? Sigh!!

        the only suggestion i have about using Nutella is to microwave it for less time. when we took it out of the microwave after the second minute there was an oily liquid separating. it took lots of stirring to get it mixed back it, not certain we entirely succeeded. it is still delicious.
