Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge AKA Fast Fudge

It seems like I’ve been making chocolate peanut butter fudge forever! This fudge is failproof and so, so good. And it’s fast. 

I got this recipe from my son’s Kindergarten teacher. She calls it fast fudge. My son is 33 now, so that was a long, long time ago. It’s been my go-to peanut butter fudge recipe ever since.

No-Fail Fudge

This chocolate peanut butter fudge always sets up fast and the recipe has never failed me. I guess that’s why I like it so much. Well, the taste is why I like it so much, but having an easy recipe is a bonus.

This fudge makes a great gift idea. Print or write out the recipe and give it along with a tin of fudge. 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Place a cup of peanut butter and vanilla in a large bowl and set aside. Butter an 8x8x2 dish. 

Peanut Butter and Vanilla in a bowl

In a large saucepan, stir together sugar, cocoa, and 1/2 cup water.

Sugar and Cocoa for Fudge

Bring the chocolate mixture to a boil and boil rapidly for exactly one minute.

Chocolate and Fudge Mixture Boiling for Fudge

Yes, you need to time it because it needs to be exactly one minute – no more and no less.

Pour the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter and vanilla. Beat with a spoon until thick. It thickens quickly so don’t overbeat it. 

Stir chocolate mixture into peanut butter mixture

Pour the mixture into the buttered pan.

Pour Fudge Mixture in Pan

Let cool completely and cut into small squares. This should make about 24 squares.

You may not want to make this when you’re home alone because you can’t eat just one square. At least I can’t. 

Peanut Butter Fudge

Store fudge in an airtight container. 

Can you freeze fudge?

You can freeze fudge. It may not retain the exact same consistency. Freeze after cooling and before cutting into squares. Wrap it twice with plastic wrap and place in a ziplock freezer bag.

Does the weather affect fudge?

Yes, it can! The weather can affect how candy (like fudge) sets up. If it’s humid or rainy, the fudge may end up with a sugary or grainy texture. I always try to make candy (like this fudge) on a sunny day.
