Peanut butter and maple syrup have this amazing relationship. I think they might be in love with each other. This vegan Peanut Butter Maple Fudge recipe is really easy to make and you have the option of adding chocolate chips if you want to crank up the flavor/passion levels even more.
2 cups natural style peanut butter, unsalted
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/3 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons arrowroot or tapioca flour
1 teaspoon salt
In a large mixing bowl, add the peanut butter and vanilla.
In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, maple syrup, arrowroot or tapioca flour and salt. Bring the mixture to a simmer for about 1 minute then remove from heat. Pour the mixture into the bowl containing the peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until well incorporated then pour into a wax paper lined 8 x 8 inch baking dish. Allow to cool completely.
Lift the fudge out of the baking dish by it's wax paper liner and place it on a cutting board. Slice into pieces with a large knife.
