Growing up, it just wouldn’t be Christmas without a big tin of my mom’s deliciously creamy peanut butter fudge sitting around the house. This fudge is a truly decadent holiday treat. Delightfully creamy, your eyes will roll back into your head as it melts in your mouth with a blast of buttery roasted peanut butter and just a hint of salt.
Here are my two biggest pieces of advice for making this fudge taste spectacular – use a really great peanut butter and a really great vanilla extract.
I recommend using something like Nielsen-Massey’s Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla – a well-known favorite among professional and home bakers and the only vanilla extract that I use.
As for peanut butter, choose one that has a strong roasted peanut flavor and one that does not have added ingredients such as other oils or extra sugar. There is plenty of sugar in this recipe as it is and it truly doesn’t need any extra sweetness. Ideally, you want the ingredient label to include only two items: peanuts and salt. I love Peanut Butter & Co’s Old-Fashioned Smooth Peanut Butter (but be careful with the same brand’s “Smooth Operator” flavor as it does add extra sugar)
I mean, whatever you use is gonna produce some tasty fudge, but those are my two little tidbits that’ll really elevate your fudge into something special and remembered.
This was the first Christmas that my kids really got into enjoying the delicious treats lying around and this was one of their very favorites of the season. I know it will be one of yours, too! Enjoy!Print
