2 Ingredient Fudge...No Joke!

 
 


This fudge is so easy, I almost didn't make a post of it, but it's so good I had to share.  The same reader that sent me the 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies also sent me this 2 Ingredient Fudge recipe.  For those of you who thought that they could not make fudge, you now can.  Once again, I was skeptical that this was really good, but once again.....it was.  I need to quit second guessing things...lol.  

This is all there is to this: 

1  16oz. container vanilla frosting
1 18 oz. jar of good creamy peanut butter (like Jiff)

Place the vanilla frosting in the microwave and microwave on high for 60 seconds.  Be sure to remove the foil on the top.   When it has completely melted, remove and stir into the peanut butter.  Blend together well and pour into a 9"x9" pan that has been lined with buttered wax paper or nonstick foil.  Refrigerate until firm, then remove from pan and peel off foil or paper.  Cut in 1 inch squares. This is really creamy and rich fudge and no on will know it was this easy. You can pretend you stood over the boiling pan with the candy  thermometer half of the afternoon.    I did sprinkle 1 cup of chopped peanuts on top of mine for a better looking presentation.

2 Ingredient Fudge!

  2. I LOVE peanut butter fudge but it doesn't always turn out moist. Sometimes dry. SO, I'm trying this!!! Especially since I can't have chocolate unless its white chocolate and most people make chocolate fudge instead of peanut butter. THANK YOU!!!!

  8. Several readers said they do use chocolate instead of vanilla frosting it works great. Also, someone said they did use Nutella for the peanut butter and it also worked.

  9. If your peanut butter fudge is dry, then you are overmixing it, and maybe over boiling it....stir as little as possible to prevent that..same thing with home made biscuits, don't play with the dough...barely mix, done!

  10. You can do the same thing with chocolate chips and frosting! ( any flavor of chips actually), heat chips first in microwave for 1 minute. Add frosting and heat for one minute. Add nuts if desired and pour into a buttered pan. Cool and enjoy!

  14. I made this today. So easy and very nasty, even though I don't care for peanut butter. Giving it all away for Christmas gifts. I am going to try it with the Nutella and chocolate chips too.

  15. I have done thi for years thanks to my Grandmother and the Homemakers in Georgetown, Ky! It turns out great and everyone is amazed at how easy it is. Just use a less oily peanut butter or it takes longer to set.

  16. Sugar-free frosting and Low Sodium Jif Peanut Butter would make it High Blood Pressure and/or Diabetic friendly. I will try this soon!

  17. I've made this for years, and always received raves for it. My Brother-in-Law spends hours making fudge for Christmas every year, and says mine taste better. He asks for the recipe, but I've never told him. I just let Bro think I spend as much time making my fudge as he does making his. lol

  25. This recipe works great, but I do it the way my cousin told me. Put contents of one 18-ounce jar in a microwave-safe bowl, and also add the complete contents of one tub of vanilla frosting. Do not mix them together. Microwave for 1 minute then remove and mix, then pour into greased baking dish. I have even tried it using chocolate frosting in place of the vanilla frosting. It isn't too bad.
