Intro: Easy Peanut Butter Fudge | 4 Ingredients!

In this instructable, I will show you how to make Peanut Butter Fudge. This easy homemade peanut butter fudge recipe only requires four ingredients! It is a twist on the classic chocolate fudge, which is so yummy around the holidays or any time really. If I can make it, you can make it, let's get started! :)

Don't forget to follow me and check out my other instructables. :)

If you have any questions, comments, or requests leave them down below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Follow the easy steps below or watch the short video tutorial, or do both. :)

Step 1: Ingredients/Tools


  • 1/2 cup of milk (whole, 2%, 1%, etc.) (125mL)
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar (450g)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (5mL)
  • 3/4 cup of peanut butter (195g)


  • 8x8 pan
  • parchment paper
  • sauce-pot
  • wooden spoon
  • spatula

Step 2: Heat Milk and Sugar

First we take our sugar and our milk and put them in a sauce-pot. Then set the burner on your stove to medium-low heat. Next slowly heat up the mixture until it starts to bubble/boil. Once it gets to that stage let it boil for 2 and a half minutes, stirring constantly so it doesn't burn. Up until the stage stir occasionally. Then remove it from the heat.

Step 3: Vanilla Extract and Peanut Butter

Now let's add in the vanilla extract and peanut butter and stir them really well until the fudge base gets nice and smooth.

Step 4: Pour, Spread, Set

Now pour the mixture into an 8x8 pan that has been lined with parchment paper, or if you don't have that, just spray the pan well with kitchen spray. I like to use parchment paper because it makes it really easy to pull it out. Spread it so it is level with a spatula. Then let it cool down so it can set up.

Step 5: Cut and Enjoy!

Now that it has set up, go ahead and cut into it. You can make the squares as big or as small as you like. :) Enjoy!

Step 6: Video Tutorial

Now watch those steps in action by checking out this short video tutorial. :)

    Hi, Matt! Love your videos :) Have you tried it yet with Splenda? Just wondering as I like to use that as a sugar substitute? Thanks!

    Question 1 day ago

    Is this very soft fudge, or is it sturdy? In other words, could I pack this with me in a bag and not have it become a sticky mess?

    Hello Allison, it is pretty sturdy. I store it in the fridge, but it can be stored at room temp as well. It should do just fine being packed in a bag. :)

    I once added maple flavoring to a peanut butter cookie recipe and it turned out fantastic! I made this fudge recipe with maple flavoring plus vanilla (1/2 tsp of each) and it tasted SO good!
    Thanks for the recipe!
