Peanut Butter Fudge


December 10, 2010 by Flora Dawn

Fudge is definitely a holiday tradition at my house. In fact, my teenage daughter was trying to convince me to make 12 Days of Fudge this year. I didn’t really think we needed quite that much fudge, however; so we are just making a few of our favorites.

After trying numerous recipes for peanut butter fudge, this adaptation is definitely the winner. If you like peanut butter, you’ll probably enjoy this fudge. It is a simple recipe, requiring no candy thermometer. However, the result is a smooth, creamy, and rich treat! And it’s perfect for sharing with family and friends.

Happy Gluten Free Baking!

    If you like peanut butter, then I think you’ll love this!!! I can’t believe how simple and tasty it is. If you have a person in your family who doesn’t like chocolate (crazy as they may be), this is a great alternative to typical fudge.
