Eat It Right Now Peanut Butter Fudge

     I've never before been successful making peanut butter fudge. After years of attempts and numerous batches of "spoon fudge", finally the perfect batch was made.

1/2 cup Milk
2 cups Sugar
1/8 teaspoon Cardamom
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup Peanut Butter
  • Lightly grease aluminum foil with real butter. 
  • Combine milk, sugar, and cardamom in medium pot. 
  • Bring mixture to boil, reduce heat to medium, and continue to stir while mixture boils for 2 1/2 minutes.

  • Stir in vanilla then peanut butter just until combined. Watch out. This recipe hardens up quickly, so you need to work fast.

  • Turn out mixture onto buttered foil and smooth evenly, approximately 1/2 inch thick. 
  • Allow to harden, cut, and eat.

     On our cool countertop, this hardened almost immediately which led to my daughter naming it "eat it now peanut butter fudge." Creamy, sweet, and peanut buttery, this is only better with a tall glass of milk. I even went back for another piece.

  1. That looks amazing! I love peanut butter and may have to use this in our homeschooling one of these days!! Thanks for sharing! Stopping by from the hop, and Crew :)

  2. This looks SO good! Thanks for linking up with "Try a New Recipe Tuesday." I am featuring you this week! :-) Congrats! Be sure to stop by and grab an "I've been featured" button from my sidebar for your blog. The post should go live late Monday evening. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks, Lisa, I'll add it to my links page.

  3. I love the addition of cardamon in the recipe. I will have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Last year we tried cardamom for the first time,, and now I add it to a lot of things that I bake. We got to the bottom of our jar and just had to buy more; it was surprisingly hard to find.

  4. This looks very good. Thanks for linking up with Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen! Hubby is usually the one making the fudge in our house, but I would love to try a new recipe. If the children and I make it I will be sure to link back to your blog.
    I do have to say, I had never heard of cardamom before. I hope I can find it in our area.

    1. Fudge is usually my hubby's project, too, and it is delicious. This is so much easier than regular fudge. The cardamom can be left out if you can't find it, but it adds an extra layer of flavor that is so good. If you've never tried it, you may find that you want to add it to a lot of sweet recipes.

  5. Yum! This looks so good. I love peanut butter and fudge.
