Peanut Butter Dessert Easy To Make This simple recipe is the perfect balance between sweet and savory. It’s soft, creamy, and great for holidays, special occasions, or just because!
This dessert makes a great addition to treating cans as well as peanut butter balls, the Nutella Rocky Road Fudge, and Christmas crack shorts for the holiday season.
When I was growing up, peanut butter was one of my greatest indulgences. She worked in a grocery store throughout most of high school and there was a local company selling their sweets there and the peanut butter candy was to die for.
Other than that, I’ve never been a fan of fudge, you’ll never see me bring a fudge bar and I hate it when the fudge is crumbly.
But this peanut butter dessert recipe is creamy, peanut butter, perfect. It’s tender, delicious, and just melts in your mouth!
Why do I like this recipe!
Unlike many fudge recipes, this one uses half and half instead of regular milk. This helps add the rich flavor and creamy texture that I love so much about this peanut butter candy!
I also use powdered sugar in place of granulated sugar because you get a smoother dessert.
You don’t need any fancy equipment (other than a hand blender) to make this delicious fudge recipe, it’s a really easy recipe and no dessert thermometer is required!
Probably all of the ingredients in this recipe are already in the refrigerator or pantry!
