  • 8x8 pan
  • parchment paper
  • sauce-pot
  • Wooden spoon
  • Spatula


  • 1/2 cup of milk whole, 2%, 1%, etc. (125mL)
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar 400g
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract 5mL
  • 3/4 cup of peanut butter 195g


  • Combine the milk and the sugar in a medium pot. Heat up the pot on the stovetop on medium-low heat stirring occasionally. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir constantly for 2 minutes so the mixture doesn't burn.
  • Remove the pot from the stove and add the vanilla extract and peanut butter. Stir until the mixture becomes smooth.
  • Pour the hot peanut butter fudge into an 8x8 or 7x11 pan lined with parchment paper or spray the pan with kitchen spray. Spread out the top with a spatula.
  • Allow the peanut butter fudge to cool for 30 minutes at room temperature, then place it in the fridge too set completely. It will usually take 2 to 4 hours for it to set properly.
  • Remove it from the pan and cut it up into squares. I can usually get 45 to 50 pieces out of it. Enjoy!
