Though it’s easier to mix the recipe with powdered sugar, I prefer to use sugar crystals. I guess I just like the drama that comes with hard work. All that matters is the end product.
How would you store this? There's so much! Just out airtight? Fridge? Freeze some?
Fantastic! I made a few adjustments to be peanut f
I am not allergic to peanuts, but I just don't like PB. I am a vegan with Celiac disease though, so I used a few specific products and the results were SUPERB!
I subbed crunchy Barney Butter brand almond butter, (certified GF) for the PB. Then, I threw some (a handful? of pecans into my ninja and ground those to the consistency of coffee grounds and threw those in too. I then pressed some remaining pecan halves on top before refrigerating (to speed the hardening). For the vanilla I use Nielsen-Massey's Madagascar bourbon pure vanilla extract because it's certified GF too.
I use Wholesome Sweeteners' powdered sugar & Coombs organic maple syrup because I don't react to them even though they aren't "certified" GF.
I've made this 3 times this month. I am not one to eat sweets, candies, etc. but these are so good & so simple to make.
Thank you for sharing!

I made this fudge with brown sugar and mixed it a little bit longer, it set really well, like normal fudge, not sticky one bit! I was so happy with it and it tastes amazing, my friends have named it 'snickers fudge' as I used crunchy peanut butter. Thank you ☺️
Hi Mattie - me and my flatmates down here in New Zealand are devouring this fudge, it is sooo good. One thing I'm wanting to get your expert advice on is - is it possible to make this with brown sugar instead of powdered ( I prefer the taste ) - and get a good solid consistency with that? I tried it first with soft brown sugar (don't know what the equivalent would be in the US) and it tasted amazing, but didn't set (would be perfect as the caramel bit in a caramel slice though!) and then I made it with the powdered sugar and it set way better, but still gets a bit gooey out of the fridge so hard to wrap in parchment paper and give as gifts (which is what I want to do). What do you think? I would be eternally indebted for your help!
ps love all the cookie/brownie recipes here too. Great site!
I made this for my family tonight and vegans and non vegans loved it. It came out perfectly for me...now I just need more peanut butter. Could one use the non natural stuff and get similar results?
Hi...I absolutely love the taste of this fudge. But, it didn't harden as fudge usually does. The fudge was completely at room temperature and when I went to cut it, the consistency is like a thicker peanut butter. I re-read the directions and I did exactly what it says. Do you have a trick to make it more solid? Taste is so good! Thanks in advance for your help! :)
Amazing Peanut Butter Fudge
I am not vegan but I have a few friends that are. My biggest challenge was to find vegan dishes that would fool all of my friends into believing that they were not depriving themselves of dairy. This was my winner! ALL of my friends said that this is the best Peanut Butter Fudge of any kind that they have had and when I told them it was Vegan they did not believe me. I didn't add the Chocolate as I couldn't find any Vegan Chocolate Chips that melted the way I wanted but in my opinion they were amazing without it. I also recommend making the Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies, they were also a hit!
Peanut Butter Maple Fudge
This fudge is AH-mazing, and super easy to make. As suggested, I added chocolate. Once the fudge was cooling in the pan, I melted some semi-sweet chocolate chips and spread it all over the top. When I was done eating a square, I felt a strong urge to brush my teeth. However, the fudge is so delicious that I would gladly brush my teeth all day. Yum!
