I am a big peanut butter fan, so it was only a matter of time before I would try to make a peanut butter fudge. I perused a few recipes and created my own adding peanuts and maple syrup (one of my new favorite tastes!).
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 Tbsp maple syrup
2 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup crushed peanuts
For this fudge, I used a double boiler. While I brought the water up to a boil, I lined a 9x7 pyrex dish with foil. I sprayed the foil with a nonstick spray.
Once the water was boiling, I lowered the heat and put the peanut butter and butter into the top pan. I heated the ingredients while stirring until they were melted. Then, I added the maple syrup. After, I removed the pan from the heat and stirred in the powdered sugar and crushed peanuts. Next, I poured the mixture into the prepared pyrex dish. Then, I covered the dish and put it in the refrigerator. You should keep the fudge in the refrigerator for about 2 hours or until firm.
Once the fudge is firm, you can open the dish and flip the fudge right on to a cutting board. The foil should easily peel right off! Then, cut the fudge into squares.
This recipe is super easy and results in some yummy peanut butter maple fudge!
