  5. 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.
  6. 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 - Read more ...

  8. I was impressed with how little time it took to make this candy and it's really good--especially to peanut butter-lovers!
  9. Very smooth- taste much like a non-crunchy Butterfinger Bar. Might be great with an added chocolate layer.
