I was shocked at how quick and easy this recipe was! I reduced the sugar to 2 1/2 cups and could have gone with 2 or 2 1/4. At 2 it was still very creamy. At 2 1/2 it was very thick and probably didn't need to be refridgerated to thicken. In any case it was so easy and SO GOOD! We LOVE it! I recommend it to all peanut butter fudge lovers. (You can serve it to friends and family who are not vegan and they would NEVER guess that this fudge IS.) Read More

WAY too much sugar. I don't see how it's possible to cram that much sugar in. I used only 2 cups and still had difficulty getting it all mixed in and then it was so crumbly I could not get it out of the pan. Next time I'll only use 1 1/2 cups. Read More

I have been making pb fudge for years and this is by far the quickest and tastiest yet! Thank you for such an excellent vegan recipe. It was so creamy and smooth. I use a non-hydrogentated vegan butter and I also do not add as much sugar as it calls for and it has turned out perfect everytime! Read More

Was not looking for a vegan recipe so I used an equal amount of shortening instead and dotted the top of each piece with chocolate chips. This was very rich but also very good. Very easy recipe! Read More

easy and good! everyone liked it--I recommend NOT using vegan butter-imitation spread though. That is what I used and although everyone liked it I thought it tasted kind of funny. Next time I will just use a regular vegan margarine.:) Read More

I needed a dessert for a picnic tomorrow and fortunately chose this recipe. I used natural peanut butter and Smart Balance margarine and it was just superb to say nothing of ridiculously easy. Thank you for sharing this terrific recipe! Read More

Very easy and very tasty--I agree with the other posts that it would be just about impossible to use the amount of sugar in the recipe. I only got 1 and 1/2 cups in mine but it tasted good! I had non-vegan co-workers asking for the recipe. Read More
