This deliciously creamy peanut butter fudge recipe is amazing! It is so easy to make and it turns out perfectly every time. Plus it only has 5 ingredients! It smacks of the old-style of fudge making, but it doesn’t require a candy thermometer and is so much faster and simpler. It is truly the best peanut butter fudge ever!

Whenever you make anything, make sure that you use the best ingredients – real vanilla, real butter, etc. Regarding the milk, however, skim milk works just fine if that’s what you have on hand.
