Recipe Comments & Reviews

Made this for first time today. After put fudge in pan seemed butter was coming to top, I took it out of pan back in bowl and microwaved it and stirred it again. Same thing, seems butter settled on top again. Put in fridge anyway hoping it turns out better than it looks.
Wowsa!! just whipped this up for a bake sale! course had to sample it!! very good, super easy and pretty much PERFECT!! thanks
very best fudge i ever tasted , will continue to make this fast and great tasting fudge . thanks landolakes .

When I made this the first time, it came out amazing. I even stirred in some chocolate chips right at the end. I wanted to try to make a batch that was a little less sweet and little more peanut buttery, so I reduced the sugar by a cup and increased the peanut butter to 1 cup. Somehow it didn't come out as good, it was lumpy and greasy and didn't set. Bottom line, stick with the recipe, and add a few chocolate chips for variation. It is perfect that way!
Best fudge I have ever made or eaten! Creamy, sets up great especially overnight, and can be cut into perfect squares very well. Everyone loved it!
This is an awesome recipe! I have made it several times and it always turns out perfect. By far one of my favorite recipes! I highly recommend it, especially if you have not tried it before!
This is the BEST peanut butter fudge! So quick & has a wonderful creamy taste. It just melts in your mouth! I always get compliments on it!
Made this about a week before Christmas, and can't stay out of it! Very easy.

This is the best Peanut Butter Fudge and the fastest to make!!! Delicious! ;>)
I have made this recipe for several years now and get lots of compliments. People ask for the recipe and I send them straight to Land 0' Lakes website where they always find other fantastic recipes.
I made this fudge yesterday. It turned out really smooth, creamy, and very delicious. The only problem I had with it is that it was to soft and didn't get hard enough to cut. I followed the directions step by step so not sure what the problem was but it is a good fudge.
this recipe works great and it is very good.
I made this fudge to give to my family for
Christmas. It is so easy to make, and moist. Keep up the easy recipes for us who
are limited on time. TERAT
This is a great treat and my daughters favorite. At the holidays I'm always asked to fix their favorite treats and they all love this. I will continue to make it. It is so easy and takes very little time and you can't go wrong.
