Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge


Who knew making fudge was this easy and cheap! Seriously, I made this in just a few minutes and the taste is amazing. My grandkids have been devouring our peanut butter so I thought I would see what they think about Peanut Butter Fudge. This would make a great fudge for the holidays too so save this one!

Place foil in an 8” x 8” square dish.



In a medium bowl pour in the milk, powdered sugar and butter.



Using a spatula mix until the powdered sugar is mixed with the milk.

Microwave on high for 2 minutes.



Use a hand mixer and mix for about 30 seconds.

Microwave on high an additional 30 seconds.



Add the peanut butter.



Mix with the hand mixer until the peanut butter is

combined but don’t mix too long or it will start to set up.



Place the mixture into the foil lined dish.



Let the fudge set up and then pull the fudge out of the pan by the foil edges.

Carefully pull the foil away from the sides of the fudge.



Using a thin sharp knife, cut the fudge into approximately 1” squares.

Fudge will keep for about 2 weeks at room temperature, however,

to keep it from drying out follow the wrapping directions below.

Wrap each piece of fudge individually in waxed paper or place the fudge on a sheet of waxed paper and completely cover with more waxed paper. Then place the wrapped fudge on a sheet of foil and seal the foil. Place the wrapped fudge in an airtight container and set on the counter.
