Tips for Making this Recipe
Use rubber or silicone utensils when mixing. I find that it is much easier to stir everything together when using a silicone or rubber spatula instead of a metal spoon.
Use a microwave-safe bowl. When you are heating up the peanut butter you want to be sure that you use a bowl that is safe to go in the microwave.
What is the best kind of Peanut butter to use when making this Fudge Recipe?
When making this frosting peanut butter fudge recipe, it’s best to use creamy peanut butter that has a smooth and consistent texture. This will help ensure that the fudge has a smooth and creamy texture as well. Avoid using natural peanut butter or peanut butter with added oils or sugar, as these can affect the texture and consistency of the fudge. Instead, opt for a classic, creamy peanut butter that has a moderate sweetness and a smooth texture. Some popular brands that work well for peanut butter fudge include Jif, Skippy, and Peter Pan. However, feel free to use your favorite brand of peanut butter for a flavor that you love!
What is the best Frosting to use with this recipe?
When making this easy peanut butter fudge with frosting you want to use canned store-bought frosting in Vanilla flavor. I do not suggest using the whipped frosting as i don’t find it works as well. You can use any of the regular or cream cheese frosting when you are making this recipe. You do not want to use homemade frosting when making this recipe as it is different then canned frosting and the fudge will not set properly.
