Take one bite of this fudge and you’ll fall in love. This Easy Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge is the creamiest, dreamiest, peanut butteriest fudge you’ll ever eat and it takes minutes to make.
There are so many ways to make peanut butter fudge, but this is by far the best!
I know because I’ve been making it for over 20 years and have eaten pounds and pounds and probably even more pounds of it. It has the most silky smooth texture of any fudge I’ve ever tasted. As you take a bite, the fudge immediately begins to melt on our tongue filling your entire mouth with peanut butter goodness.
Unlike most fudges that are made with granulated or powdered sugar, this fudge gets it’s sweetness from white candy confectionery coating wafers (candy melts) so the texture is incredibly creamy. There are no sugar crystals that will form over time nor is it ever dry like the powdered sugar version can be.
It’s not overly sweet either. This fudge has a robust peanut butter flavor which comes from creamy peanut butter and peanut butter chips. A bit of salt intensifies that flavor even further.
What could be better than that?
This fudge is super easy to make too. Watch this video to see just how quickly you can make a pan filled with this Easy Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge.
- 20 ounces white confectionery coating wafers (candy melts)
- 10 ounce bag Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
- 20 ounces creamy peanut butter (2 1/2 cups)
- 1 pinch of salt
- Line an 8 inch square pan with non-stick tin foil or parchment paper.
- Combine the white confectionery coating wafers with the peanut butter chips in a large microwave safe mixing bowl.
- Heat on high power for 30 second increments, stirring after each, until melted.
- Add the peanut butter and salt and stir until smooth.
- Pour into the lined pan.
- Let firm up at room temperature for at least 6 hours before cutting or freeze for 30-45 minutes, then remove and let thaw for one hour.
- I like to use Peter’s White Caps to make my fudge, but Wilton White Candy Melts work well too.
- You can also use Nestle White Premier White Morsels (white chips.) Just know that they melt thicker than the confectionery coating so you may want to add an extra tablespoon or two of peanut butter to the recipe.
- I use Jif Creamy Peanut butter because it’s smooth and I love the flavor. If you use a natural peanut butter the texture may be a bit different.
