Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Peanut Butter Fudge
Yum, delicious homemade fudge. What can I say? It’s been around forever and it’s still extremely popular to this day! In this recipe, you are getting the best of both worlds because peanut butter and cocoa both go into this recipe. That’s not it; did I mention chopped walnuts also go into this delicious fudge as well? If you have ever made fudge before you probably know it takes little time and is rather easy. One important thing is making sure the fudge reaches the right temperate on the stove. Use a candy thermometer or even a digital thermometer for a more accurate reading. You will want the fudge to reach around 238-240 degrees before removing from the heat.

I just made this fudge. I made it, 1 1/2 times the recipe. I placed it in a 13x9 dish. It turned out perfect. Thank you for the recipe.

Kelly - I am sorry this is not turning out well for you :(

I double checked this post to make sure there was no errors, everything looks fine. I would say the problem is in the temperature still, the mixture is not reaching the right temp. Also, if by some chance you are trying to cool the mixture in the refigerator, I would not recommend that.

I bought a candy thermomemter and still no luck. Slightly more firm, but even sitting overnight it could be spooned out.

Kelly - Sounds about right. The fudge needs to reach the right temp or it will not set. Try to find a thermometer. I hope things turn out better next time.

I tried this once and the fudge never set up, but it did taste good. I'm trying it again. I'm thinking my lack of candy thermometer meant I didn't get it to the right temperature. Hopefully omitting the nuts doesn't make a difference. Here's hoping!
