If you’ve read any of our recipes, I say it over and over again. I like simple. Really simple. And this vegan peanut butter fudge doesn’t get more simple.
I don’t typically share a lot about us personally, but one of the reasons I like simple is because I’m a working, homeschooling, mother of 2 crazy non-stop little girls. I don’t have a ton of time to spend in the kitchen whether it’s for dinner or dessert or anything in between.
And I know you don’t either.
Whether you have children or not, you life is still chaotic at times. Because I can relate to the fact that you don’t have time, it gives me the ability to really try and make things as easy as possible.
The only time a recipe will have overly complicated directions or more than 10 ingredients is when I really think that you can’t have it still be just as amazing without the ingredient or instruction the way it’s written.
Luckily for us (you and me) this vegan peanut butter fudge is one of the easiest dessert recipes out there. In fact, it’s so easy, I almost hate calling it a recipe….almost.

Can I make Top 8 Allergen free fudge?
This can be done, but it won’t exactly taste the same.
First, you can ensure that you get a soy free dairy free butter like Earth Balance soy free in the red tub or sticks.
Then, you just need to use a nut butter that is safe for you. If you are allergic to peanuts and all other nuts, then sunflowers are your best bet.
If peanuts are your only allergy, but not others, try a cashew or almond butter, etc for a delicious spread.

how do I know if I need to use more than 2 cups of powdered sugar? the recipe says up to 3 cups.
Depending on the vegan butter and the peanut used, when stirring, some people are finding it’s more like frosting. Add the extra powdered sugar as needed with omit this from happening. Watching the video will help show the texture it should look like at the stages! Hope this helps
I gave this 3 stars because it tastes wonderful, but mine did not set up at all. I used I can’t believe it’s not butter vegan, so maybe that was the problem. It came out more like a frosting, so I will use it as a frosting next time.
Sorry to hear that, yes it could be the butter
Can you use a 8×8 square pan ?
It would be very thin
Mine did not set up at all. I’ve got 2 pounds of peanut butter frosting, basically.
This didn’t turn out like fudge at all for me:( it tastes AMAZING but it’s basically a light, fluffy peanut butter frosting. I’m not sure what I did wrong since I followed the directions exactly, but I’m still giving 4 stars because it tastes great and I’ll at least have a nice frosting for something!
Will this work with natural peanut butter?
