Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup peanut butter (extra crunchy for added texture)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Boil Sugar and Milk:
    • In a saucepan, combine 2 cups of sugar and 1/2 cup of milk.
    • Bring the mixture to a boil and let it boil for about 3 minutes. The sugar should be completely dissolved to ensure a smooth texture (no grittiness).
  2. Add Peanut Butter and Vanilla Extract:
    • Add 1 cup of peanut butter (use extra crunchy for added texture) to the boiling sugar and milk mixture.
    • Also, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
    • Stir the mixture continuously until the peanut butter is fully incorporated and the mixture becomes smooth.
  3. Pour into Pan:
    • Once the fudge mixture is smooth, promptly pour it into an 8×8-inch pan.
  4. Let it Cool:
    • Allow the peanut butter fudge to cool at room temperature. It will firm up as it cools.
  5. Cut and Serve:
    • Once the fudge has cooled and set, cut it into squares. Don’t worry too much about the neatness; the deliciousness matters more!
  6. Enjoy:
    • Excuse the presentation if it’s not perfect—what matters is the taste! Enjoy your quick and easy peanut butter fudge.
