A Sweet Treat-5 Ingredient Fudge

A Sweet Treat-5 Ingredient Fudge

I made this quick and easy fudge for Christmas. I changed a few things this year, but previously have made this fudge the basic way. It hardly takes any time and I did receive a few compliments on it! This would be a great addition to your New Year’s Eve Party if you are looking for a sweet, fast, and easy recipe!

Peanut Butter Fudge

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 10 Minutes

Total Time: 15 Minutes


  • 2 cups granulated sugar

  • ½ cup milk

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • ½ tsp vanilla

  • 1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)

(The recipe that I made was Maple Peanut Butter Fudge)

I used homemade Madagascar Vanilla in place of vanilla and used ½ cup creamy peanut butter with ½ cup of Paul Family Farm’s Maple Peanut Butter. I also lined an 8×8 baking dish in foil before pouring in the mixture.


  1. Combine the sugar and the milk in a large saucepan over medium high heat.

  2. Stir it just until the sugar is incorporated into the milk, then leave it alone.

  3. When the mixture comes to a boil (as soon as you start seeing consistent bubbles), start a timer for about 2 and a half minutes. Don’t stir! You don’t want to disrupt the sugar crystals.

  4. Remove the pot from the heat, add the salt, vanilla and peanut butter.

  5. Beat the mixture with a wooden spoon just until the peanut butter is melted and mixed throughout. (About a minute or two.)

  6. Pour the fudge mixture into the pan and smooth the top. Put the pan on a cooling rack to set and cool completely. It usually takes a couple of hours.
