Easy Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Posted by

I cannot remember where or when, but one time I tried the creamiest, most delectable peanut butter fudge. The flavor was just the right balance of sugary sweetness and nuts, and the fudge managed to hold a light texture, which is uncommon when we’re talking about the thickness of an ingredient like peanut butter. I often wondered what made this particular recipe so yummy. The answer: marshmallow creme! Of course, peanut butter and marshmallow, just like the famous New England sandwich, the Fluffernutter!
