Confession: This recipe was a total snaccident. I was aiming for peanut brittle and I got 4 ingredient peanut butter fudge. And you know what? Not sorry about it. AT ALL!
This fudge is kinda incredible. The perfect blend of creamy, smooth peanut butter goodness, with the salty crunch of yummy whole peanuts.
In summary (aka get me to the recipe fast) this is pretty much what you’re dealing with:
- 4 ingredients – peanut butter, rice malt syrup, butter and salted peanuts. Nothing more. Nothing less.
- 1. Stir. 2. Freeze. 3. Watch an episode of [insert favourite Netflix show here] while it sets. Fudge making doesn’t get easier.
- If you’re thinking about cutting down on refined sugar. Thank me now. This 4 ingredient peanut butter fudge. Refined.Sugar.Free.
- It’s also the perfect after dinner treat. One little piece. Oh so satisfying.
And I haven’t actually tried this. But I reckon if you topped it with some melted dark chocolate and popped it in the fridge, you would be in complete brain cell blowing territory.
4 ingredient peanut butter fudge. In the running for YTGT recipe of the year and it’s only January. That good.Print
The perfect blend of creamy, smooth peanut butter goodness, with the salty crunch of yummy whole peanuts. Super easy. And with only 4 ingredients. Be warned. Addiction risk high.
- 1/2 cup smooth 100% peanut butter
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup rice malt syrup
- 150g salted peanuts (approximately 1 cup)
- Line a slice tin with baking paper and chop butter into cubes.
- Melt the butter and rice malt syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add the peanut butter and keep stirring until all the ingredients are well combined. If the mixture starts to bubble remove from heat and turn the cook top down a fraction. Once the mixture has cooled, return it to heat and continue stirring..
- Remove from heat and stir through the salted peanuts. Pour the fudge into lined tin.
- Transfer to the freezer and freeze for at least an hour or until firm.
- Cut into 14 squares and enjoy the yum!
- You will need to keep these babies in a sealed container in the fridge. That is, if you don’t eat them all first
