Brilliant Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Written by Roar Elias

There is nothing like a block of chocolate peanut butter fudge every so often. It really does give you a lift.

However, there are few of us who can say that we are completely successful at making any form of fudge. This is one thing that is really challenging. Something like this makes you feel like such a failure and that is why it is the worst thing to start off with if you are new to the wonderful world of baking and experimenting with sweet treats. If fudge making hasn't worked out for you, the chances are that you are not likely to be giving it another bash.

However, there is a way to deliver top notch fudge flavoured with peanut butter which comes straight from your kitchen. Who says you have to slave over the stove with a candy thermometer when there is a cheat's recipe available. You will find that top restaurants all over the world use cheat recipes and they produce food that tastes out of this world so what is stopping you?

Try out this recipe for yourself and you will see just how easy it actually is.


  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Grease a square baking pan and set it aside.
  2. Bring a saucepan of water to a simmer and then place a heat proof bowl on top of the saucepan with the chocolate inside. Leave this until it has just about melted until you add the peanut butter. Then add the butter and stir until it is completely smooth.
  3. Take this off the heat and remove the bowl from the saucepan. Add in the sugar and the vanilla and whisk until they are combined. Scrape this batter into the baking pan and leave it to cool. Now you can cut it into squares. Keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it or when you decide to store it.

Hot Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Sundae

On the 25th of July every year, you will have to remember to make your Hot Fudge Sundae. Of course, this can happen more than once a year, that you produce fudgy drinks from the kitchen, but this day you have to diarize as it is National Hot Fudge Sundae Day. This is celebrated right across America.

Once you have a perfect delicious recipe like the one above, all you have to do is melt the chocolate peanut butter fudge down and add a couple of scoops of ice cream along with a couple of other trimmings which usually go with your sundae. The fudge you have made will make a brilliant sauce. You can melt a couple of pieces down for your sauce and then cut or grate a few pieces so you will basically have fudge chips spread over the top. This is certainly better than one lonely cherry which sits on your sundae. Now get ready to throw your fudge sundae party and expect it to be a good one because with a recipe like this one how could you go wrong!
