Easy, Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Creamy peanut butter fudge recipe in just 10 minutes

I remember my mom and grandma working feverishly in their kitchens around the holidays. Mom was always whipping up batches of her famous peanut brittle, making it look so effortless. While I have the recipe, I have yet to master it. What I wouldn’t do for an hour in the kitchen with her to watch her at work and learn from her. I’m sure she had some trick up her sleeve. I do know that she was very particular about the spatula she used. And Grandma, well, she made peanut brittle as well, but she didn’t stop there. Each year she would make an array of candies and fudge. Her divinity was divine! Beyond the sweets themselves, I loved that they were sharing something that they loved, made with heart for those they loved. I don’t seem to have near the energy they did, but I like to do the same when I can. I whipped up a batch of my favorite easy, creamy peanut butter fudge with a few staple ingredients, after my friend Jamey texted asking me if I had any fudge recipes I loved. Of course I couldn’t just send it to her, once it was on my mind I had to have it.
