I have been on a slow cooker fudge mission to perfect my peanut butter fudge recipe. I have found peanut butter fudge a little trickier than some of my other fudge recipes. After a few tweaks I’m happy to share this recipe with you guys.
Are you a peanut butter and fudge obsessed household like we are? If yes then this is the recipe for your family. Mine would love for me to make it weekly and I have to regularly stock the pantry with the ingredients so I can treat them once in a while.
There are a few things that help to make this fudge work well. The main being they type of peanut butter. I have tried different types of nut butters. The ones that are more wholesome and healthier and then peanut butter that is just the regular store bought kind. The truth of the matter is just the plain old cheap store bought works best due to the levels of nut oil being just right to make the fudge set and to avoid having greasy fudge. Unlike my other fudges such as Terry’s chocolate orange fudge you don’t need to add any extra butter to the mixture as the peanut butter is enough.
What I love about my fudge recipes is with just a little stirring here the slow cooker does the rest! Let’s get straight to the recipe and instructions so you too can make peanut butter slow cooker fudge and also add in those Reeses peanut butter cups to complete the recipe mmmm.
We use carnation sweetened condensed milk. I try to have a stash of this in the pantry for when we’re in the fudge making mood. This time a regular block of cooks milk chocolate and white chocolate will do.
