One thing: DO NOT USE ALL-NATURAL PEANUT BUTTER! The hydrogenated vegetable oil is part of what makes this recipe work.
An 18 oz jar of peanut butter and a 16 oz tub of frosting come pre-measured. All you need to do is heat them one at a time in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl. The peanut full is thicker, so I prefer to heat them separately.
Once you start mixing them, the batter instantly starts to firm up. Quickly pour your fudge into a baking dish, and you're done. I set my fudge in the fridge to cut it into perfect squares, but you can store it at room temperature.
Chocolate Frosting vs Vanilla Frosting
You're welcome to use any flavor frosting you like. Cream cheese frosting sounds divine! I like making multiple batches of peanut butter fudge with different frosting and swirling them together.
This is fudge so you don't need to add a thing. But in case you did, here are a few ideas.
- chocolate chips
- chopped Oreos
- mini marshmallows
- Hot melted sugary ingredients can burn you! Please be careful with hot ingredients.
- The mixture starts to firm up once you mix everything, so move quickly.
- The peanut butter gets smooth and fluid after 1 minute in the microwave. Frosting almost turns to liquid between 45 seconds and 1 minute.
- Store at room temperature or fridge in a sealed container for up to two weeks.
