– 1 cup creamy peanut butter
– 1 cup unsalted butter
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 pound (about 4 cups) powdered sugar


1. Prepare a square baking dish (8×8 inches) by lining it with parchment paper or greasing it lightly with butter.
2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the creamy peanut butter and unsalted butter.
3. Microwave the peanut butter and butter mixture in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval, until the mixture is completely melted and smooth. This usually takes about 1-2 minutes depending on your microwave.
4. Once the peanut butter and butter are melted and smooth, stir in the vanilla extract until well combined.
5. Gradually add the powdered sugar to the peanut butter mixture, stirring until smooth and creamy. The mixture will be thick and fudgy.
6. Pour the fudge mixture into the prepared baking dish, using a spatula to spread it out evenly.
7. Place the baking dish in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours, or until the fudge is firm.
8. Once the fudge is firm, remove it from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften slightly.
9. Use a sharp knife to cut the peanut butter fudge into squares or rectangles, depending on your preference.
10. Serve and enjoy! Store any leftover fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.

– For extra flavor, you can add chopped peanuts or swirl in melted chocolate on top of the fudge before chilling.
– Make sure to use creamy peanut butter for the smoothest texture.
– If you don’t have a microwave, you can melt the peanut butter and butter mixture on the stovetop over low heat, stirring continuously until smooth.


With just a few simple ingredients and minimal time in the kitchen, you can whip up a batch of delicious homemade peanut butter fudge that will impress friends and family alike. This recipe is perfect for satisfying your sweet cravings any time of the year. Give it a try and treat yourself to the irresistible taste of creamy peanut butter goodness!
