peanut butter fudge

October 25th, 2011

After my trip to New York this weekend, I’ve started to get autumn on the brain — even though we’re off for a week on the beach and Texas is still in the middle of summer, weather-wise! 

But one of the best things about this time of year is thinking about holiday baking!  Whether you’re going to a friend’s party or hosting your own, everyone needs a great, easy dessert recipe to whip up in almost no time.

Making fudge is normally a big endeavor — but because this recipe is heavy on the already-nearly-solid ingredients, it comes together easily without the fuss of a candy thermometer or lots of complicated steps.  So all you need a beautiful serving dish, like this Noritake Colorwave setting!  I mixed the Chocolate and Raspberry colors for a holiday feel that stays on trend year-round. 

And if you’re not already psyched enough, stay tuned for an amazing giveaway from Noritake coming up!

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge


12 tbsp butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 tsp salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup white chocolate, broken into small pieces
3 cups powdered sugar


Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Stir in peanut butter, vanilla, salt and white chocolate.  Bring to a boil and immediately turn down the heat, stirring frequently.  Cook on low heat until the mixture is smooth and all the chocolate is melted, about 3-4 minutes, and remove from heat. 

Mix in the confectioners’ sugar with an electric mixer and beat until smooth.  Pour into a baking dish (approximately 8″ by 8″) and refrigerate for at least an hour, or until firm, and then cut into pieces.

Makes about 24 pieces.

    I have a real weakness for fudge – I’d have to pack these up and give them away immediately (I’d have some happy friends for sure!).

    I’ve never been a big fudge girl, but anything with peanut butter is a weakness for me!
