How To Make One Really Delicious Peanut Butter Fudge

By Michelle Young

When you make your sweets at home, you can use your favorite ingredients, and you always know what to expect. Some people love some things, while others prefer something else, but everybody loves a good fudge. Peanut butter fudge tastes great in all combinations, especially when combined with really good chocolate, and that's why you simply cannot make a mistake with this lovely dessert.

Although there are different more or less complicated recipes for this wonderful dessert, some are really easy to make and don't require more than a few minutes. So, here you will find some of the simplest. It certainly doesn't mean that these recipes are not at least equally tasty, especially if you use high quality ingredients.

So, you have to prepare the base. This is usually done by simply combining three cups of good choco chips and one small can of sweetened condensed milk. Place these ingredients in a bowl, put the bowl in the microwave and leave it there until everything is melted. Stir and add three large spoons of some fine peanut butter.

Before that, you should prepare a pan, and line it with parchment paper or foil. Simply pour this mixture in, spread it and smooth the top surface, and place everything in your fridge for a couple of hours. After that, you can cut it into cubes or some other shapes, sprinkle with decorative pieces or crushed peanuts, and you are ready to enjoy.

Once you have this basic mixture, it's really easy to add whatever you want to make it all more interesting. For example, you can add butter, chopped nuts, vanilla, jelly bonbons, or a small spoon of instant coffee. This way you can get totally different desserts, and it will be interesting to play with tastes. It might be a good idea to sprinkle this mixture as soon as you spread it onto your pan.

Caramel is simply perfect addition to one good choco peanut fudge. Making your own caramel is easy, so give it a try. Put two cups custard sugar in some pan and place it over low heat to caramelize. It's important not to stir until caramelized, but you should shake the pan every once in a while, just to make sure everything is equally caramelized. Now it is the time to add a can of condensed milk and to stir until done.

Now, when you have your caramel, add approximately two cups melted chocolate in. Use dark or white choco chips if you want, or simply cut and melt your favorite milk chocolate. After that, add two large spoons of your best peanut spread in and stir until smooth. Add chopped or crushed peanuts if you want, place into prepared pan, cool in the fridge to become hard enough to cut, and enjoy.

Your fudge will be even smoother if you use full cream instead of condensed milk, not to mention the fact that it will also be even tastier. In this case, add just a little bit more chocolate chips in, and, if you don't want to add more peanut butter, replace a part of it with regular butter. Remember to add some sugar if your full cream is unsweetened, or simply use milk chocolate.
