  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter (about 10 tablespoons)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Line an 8x8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides for easy removal of the fudge later.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the unsalted butter and peanut butter together. If using a microwave, heat in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until both ingredients are completely melted and well combined. You can also use a stovetop if that is more convenient.
Stir in the vanilla extract and salt into the melted peanut butter and butter mixture. Mix until everything is well incorporated. Gradually add the powdered sugar to the mixture. Stir well after each addition until the mixture is smooth and thick.
Pour the smooth peanut butter fudge mixture into the prepared pan. Use a spatula to smooth the top evenly. Place the pan in the refrigerator and let the fudge set for at least 2-3 hours, or until it is firm and completely set.
Once the fudge has set, use the parchment paper to lift it out of the pan. Use a sharp knife to cut the fudge into squares or rectangles of your desired size. Enjoy!

    Why do you call this cunchy when there's nothing chunky about it? I'm just wondering if you missed a step or i misread the recipe wrong some how. Any help would be so appreciated thanks, DawnyZ
