Very smooth- taste much like a non-crunchy Butterfinger Bar. Might be great with an added chocolate layer. Read More

I LOVE this recipe. It's peanut butter fudge with few ingredients and few steps. Love it. We have some food allergies to dairy and corn. I use Agave syrup instead of corn syrup and oat milk instead of "milk" and it comes out ridiculously good. Best part is my husband who has never made anything sweet before just made this for me last night with no help from me and couldn't even screw it up! Read More
