Peanut Butter Fudge (S)

Fudge is a delicious treat to take to any get together!  I made a cake this past year that was a HUGE hit, Peanut Butter Fudge Cake!  The frosting alone, is more than divine.  I was thinking of it today and figured I’d post it up for you in it’s own little post.  It’s a heavier dessert, but so worth it.  Rich and gooey fudge..what’s not to love?

Peanut Butter Fudge (S)

  • 1/2 block cream cheese (4 oz)
  • 1/4 cup of THM Sweet Blend (taste it and add a little more sweetener if you like super sweet)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup All-Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tbs of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla

Directions:

I put all the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir until it is melted together nicely on medium heat.  I did get it to a soft boil. It was a little lumpy so I used my handheld blender after I took it off the heat. Perfecto! Then, pour it into a 9 by 9 glass baking dish and chill. I used mini muffin tins this time.  How cute are these!?  I love this little glass dish I found at a garage sale.  I keep mine in the refrigerator.  I’d cut this up into small pieces.  It is very rich!

I don’t love to set serving sizes because I think we each know there is  a big difference between eating half of the pan and eating two pieces.  Just be reasonable.

Ooey, Gooey Peanut Butter Fudge!
Ingredients
  • ½ block cream cheese (4 oz)
  • ¼ cup Sweet Blend (taste and add a little more if you like it super sweet)
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¼ cup All-Natural Peanut Butter
  • ⅓ cup plus 1 tbs of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
Instructions
  1. I put all the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir until it is melted together nicely on medium heat.
  2. I did get it to a soft boil.
  3. It was a little lumpy so I used my handheld blender.
  4. Pour into a 9 by 9 baking dish and chill.

Here is a fun idea for a Christmas gift!  Buy some nice, sturdy disposable spoons and fill them with fudge.  I did mine after it was a bit chilled.  I added some Lily’s Chocolate Chips on top or you could use chopped nuts.  I then wrapped it in plastic wrap and tied on some twine.  Just a cute idea for your THM friends, teachers or family.

pbspoonEnjoy this rich, divine treat!  Wonderful desserts sure can be the ticket to keeping you on track during the Holiday months.

    • It doesn’t for me. Erythritol leaves a cold taste in my mouth so I don’t use it much. There is some in the Sweet Blend, but it has never tasted like that to me. It’s my favorite sweetener! 😉

  1. Have you tried adding nuts? Which kind? How much? I was wondering if they would change the texture of the fudge.

    • I haven’t. I’m sure you could add some chopped nuts if you like those in your fudge. 🙂

  2. Thank you for this recipe! It’s sitting my in fridge, setting – hopefully. (my hubs said it’s taking alot longer than it should, because I keep opening my fridge every 5 minutes to check it) 😉 I’ve been looking for another non-chocolatey, super yummy recipe (I get migraines with chocolate, alot). This is super yummy. Thank you!

    • If you aren’t on THM, I guess you could. If you don’t have the unsweetened almond, you could use heavy cream…

  3. Do you think PB powder would work the same? Would I need to add more liquids?
    I’ve been looking for easy PB fudge. Thanks!

    • I’ve been wondering about that myself. I have no idea! I guess you could add a little at a time to see. Maybe you could mix up the peanut flour/water and make 1/4 cup and try it…

  4. Half the pan is two pieces! When you cut the pan into four slices… 😉 I’m using this for a brownie topping! Thanks for the awesome recipe

  5. I made this and it has a nice flavor. Some butter grease on the top, but way too thin to make a dab like yours. I wonder whar went wrong? I used almond butter instead of pb. But i wouldnt think that would make a difference. Thanks.

  6. Just made the peanut butter fudge.I love it.Did add a few nuts
    Thank you.

  7. I’m making this right now as written. Wondering if coconut oil could replace the butter?

    • Nicki, I’ve not made it that way to say if it’s just as good. I know many sub that ingredient for the other successfully in other recipes. Sorry I’m not more help.

      • Like I said in the first comment, I made it exactly as written, but it didn’t get firm. Is it suppose to? I put it in a mini muffin tin in the fridge, but I’m still eating it out of the muffin cups with a spoon. I think I’ll freeze them. Probably stick to the paper cups, but then they could be eaten as finger food. I love peanut butter, and these are DELICIOUS!!!

  8. i just made this fudge. It is in the fridge now, but I tasted it before chilling it!!! O.M.Gosh!!! it is delicious…thank you so much!!!

  11. This is my go-to fudge recipe, just because it is so simple, and only has ingredients that I pretty much always have on hand! No extra steps, no coconut cream like so many. I’ve also added cocoa for a chocolate fudge – wish I could say how much, but I just added till it tasted right! 1/2 c.?. I don’t really taste the peanut butter flavor when it’s sufficiently chocolatey for my taste, but if someone needed to nix the nuts entirely, I think cocoa plus a bit of coconut oil or extra butter would be a good place to start.

    • I *think* there used to only be super sweet and they just called it sweet blend. When they made gentle sweet it got a new name 🙂
