3 ingredient peanut butter fudge recipe tips

  • While this easy fudge recipe is meant to have a smooth and creamy consistency. If you prefer a little bit of crunch, then use crunchy peanut butter. This is also makes a really tasty treat.
  • Before cutting the peanut butter fudge into squares, using a ruler make score lines across the fudge to ensure the squares are even 
  • You can choose how big or small you want your fudge bites to be. I like small bite size pieces. You could make larger squares or even little bars.
  • Before cutting the fudge, heat your knife under hot water  for a moment and dry with a towel. This makes it much easier to cut.
