Chocolate and Peanut butter always seem to go great together. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe is no exception. Just scrumptious. Follow the recipe to the letter. It is very quick and simple to prepare. There is a good chance you will already have everything on hand. I am sure you could leave out the nuts if you wish to.

  1. This looks so delicious! This is the kind of fudge I love, it is so soft. I eat so much homemade fudge around Christmas, but I wouldn’t mind some more!

  2. I am very excited to have found your recipe. The pics of your fudge looks just like the fudge that a co-worker would bring in and it was delicious. However he guards his recipe with his life and won’t give it to me. So I thought I would make your recipe and put the fudge in my holiday care packages. I have a question though. This is the first time I ever attempted fudge/candy making and I think I did something wrong. When I added the peanut butter and stirred my fudge turned sort of solid. It was no longer liquid. I worked as fast as possible so it wouldn’t cool and my pb was room temperature. I had to sort of mold the fudge into my dish. So, what happened? Should the pb have been heated prior to adding it to the chocolate mixture? I certainly couldn’t pour it and it doesn’t look like the pic above. It might be okay (it’s in the fridge cooling now) but it should have been pourable. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  3. My guess would be you slightly over cooked. You might need to calibrate your candy thermometer
