I was impressed with how little time it took to make this candy, and it's really good--especially to peanut butter-lovers!

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

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 in...

Excellent!! Just like my Mom used to make.

This is a very creamy candy much like a PB fudge but couldn't be simpler to make! I was very pleased with the end results with so few ingredients.
