My family loves peanut butter. They also love fudge. I have a super-easy Peanut Butter Fudge Balls Recipe, using only two ingredients! (It’s the best of both worlds!) This recipe will literally take you less than fifteen minutes to make – and comes with very little clean-up!
You will need:
1 (18 oz) jar of peanut butter, creamy or extra crunchy
1 (16 oz) tub of chocolate frosting
*My family prefers that I make this Peanut Butter Fudge Ball Recipe with the creamy peanut butter, but I had extra crunchy on hand, so that’s what we went with on this day!
Start by stirring both the jar of peanut butter and the tub of chocolate frosting, each in their individual containers. (Remember I said easy cleanup? Don’t put these in a bowl just to have to dump them into another bowl!)
Place both containers in the microwave, and warm for 1 minute and 25 seconds. The contents of both containers should be runny, in liquid form (the peanut butter will be thicker than the frosting). Pour both liquids into a bowl, and stir to combine.
Pour the mixture into a 9×13 non-stick pan or into a 10×10 glass pan, lightly coated with non-stick spray.
Let the fudge sit for about 10 minutes or until firm.
When the fudge is firm, you have two options: cut them into squares and serve or roll them into 1 inch balls.
If you choose to make peanut butter fudge balls, place them onto a sheet of wax paper or a Sil Pat (non-stick sheet). After the balls are rolled, I usually dust them with powdered sugar, cocoa powder or hot chocolate mix, then place them back in the refrigerator to firm up more (though they are just as good served at room temperature)!
When I don’t have these two ingredients, and my family wants something with peanut butter, we opt for peanut butter fudge! It’s just as yummy, but does require more cooking and clean-up.
