CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – If you love peanut butter you’re going to love this no-bake peanut butter fudge! Erin Rose, the budget friendly mom, showed us how to make it.
Peanut Butter Fudge
Makes about 50 pieces
13 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup creamy peanut butter
6 Tablespoons evaporated milk
1 one-pound box + 6-10 Tablespoons powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Place butter and peanut butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and poke vent holes in the top of the plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Add evaporated milk to heated mixture and stir until well combined. Recover and microwave an additional 2 minutes. Careful, it will be boiling hot!!
Stir mixture. Add sugar in 4 separate additions, stirring until well combined after each. It’ll get harder to stir and become less shiny. You will need the first pound of powdered sugar (about 3 3/4 cups) for sure, then add extra 6-10 Tbsp until the mixture is thickened to the point where it won’t pour easily. Continue stirring until most sugar is dissolved and there aren’t many clumps. Add vanilla and stir until well incorporated.
Transfer mixture into a 13×9 glass pan that’s lightly sprayed with nonstick spray. Chill for 2-3 hrs or until set.
