I rarely try recipes I see posted in GIFs on Facebook or Twitter. Not that I’m above them, but 9 out of 10 times they simply don’t come out as expected. But I came across this little gem on my timeline yesterday, and thought it looked easy enough, and cheap enough, to try.
Within 10 minutes, using ingredients EVERYONE has in their pantry, I created this fabulous fudge. There was plenty for my family to enjoy, and enough left over to give away a container full to our neighbor. A win-win recipe, for sure.
10 Minute Peanut Butter Fudge
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup of milk (I used whole milk)
3/4 cup of peanut butter (almond butter would also work)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
In a medium sauce pan, bring the milk and sugar to a boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla until glossy and smooth. Pour into a 9″ square glass baking dish lined with parchment paper. Allow the fudge to cool completely (toss it in the fridge to speed the process up). Remove the fudge from the baking dish by lifting the sides of the parchment paper. Place on a flat surface. Use a VERY sharp knife to cut into 1/2″ squares.
Feel free to top the fudge with ANY nut or chocolate bits you have leftover in the pantry. I had almonds! Yum.
