Keeper Recipe: Peanut Butter Fudge

These are like a million gazillion calories per piece, but try and eat just one.

8 oz. unsalted butter, plus more for greasing pan
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 lb. powdered sugar

  • Combine the butter and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Microwave for 2 minutes on high.
  • Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes.
  • Add the vanilla and powdered sugar to the peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. 
  • The mixture will become hard to stir and lose its sheen. That's good.
  • Spread into a buttered 8" x 8" pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Fold the excess parchment paper so it covers the surface of the fudge.
  • Refrigerate until cool (about 2 hours).
  • Cut into 1" pieces and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
