Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

This smooth , golden peanut butter fudge is topped with melted chocolate, borrowing from your favorite chocolate-peanut butter candy. It's all the better because there is much more of the peanut butter flavor and the chocolate is extra rich. 


  • 1 1/2 sticks margarine or butter
  • 2 cups confectioner sugar
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


  • Melt margarine in a double boiler.
  • Pour over confectioner sugar, peanut butter, vanilla, and salt in a bowl. 
  • Mix well. Pour into pan. 
  • Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler until there are no lumps and spread over fudge. 
  • Refrigerate until hard (about 45 minutes). 
  • Tip: Do not let the chocolate get too hard or it will crack when you cut it. Score it when halfway hardened.


I like to use natural peanut butter that doesn't have any hydrogenated fats.
*Confectioners sugar is the same as "powdered sugar" or (as the English call it) "icing sugar".
