No-fail peanut butter fudge is a confection that has the same texture as chocolate fudge. Unlike chocolate fudge, however, no-fail peanut butter fudge recipes require little cooking.
Traditional chocolate fudge recipes require cooking the mixture using a candy thermometer. No-fail peanut butter recipes are considered “no fail” because they aren’t cooked in that manner. To make peanut butter fudge, melt 8 ounces of butter with 1 cup creamy peanut butter in a microwave for two minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 pound of powdered sugar. Stir until it loses its sheen. Butter an 8-by-8-inch pan, and line with parchment paper. Spread the peanut butter mixture into the pan. Refrigerate for two hours, and then cut into 1-inch pieces.
