I love this peanut butter fudge because it isn’t one of those tricky fudge recipes where you’re using a candy thermometer or a cup of water to test if it’s done. That gives me all kind of anxiety. This fudge is far simpler, requiring only 2 minutes of boiling and some mixing.

In fact, you can have the entire batch done in about 10 or 15 minutes. Of course, you have to wait until this easy peanut butter fudge is chilled before cutting, but that doesn’t mean you can’t lick the spoon.

And the bowl.
