When I am asked to donate for bake sales or concession stands, I normally say yes, then whip up this super easy and low cost Peanut Butter Fudge. It also makes a great gift, especially in a pinch.

Ingredients –  1 – Jar of any brand peanut butter – 16.3 oz
                      1 – Tub ready made frosting any flavor ( I like the plain vanilla,the best)

Empty peanut butter and frosting into a microwave safe container.
Microwave on high for 1 min, stir
Micorwave on high for 1 min stir until smooth.

Pour mixture into lightly greased glass pan. (8 x 8, works best)
Smooth out, then refrigerate until hard .

I always get lots of compliments on my fudge. I have had my children’s friends request it.
I made this over the weekend and it cost me. $3.02 to make. That was running in to the
store, grabbing what I needed and out again. I am sure if you use coupons and stock up
during sales, the cost could be lower yet.

Thanks and enjoy!
Sorry I didn’t get a picture before the kids dug in!

  10. Try it with chunky peanut butter! Totally awesome! And I cheat, I heat the frosting and peanut butter in their containers for 30 seconds at a time (you don’t always need the full minute) just make sure you get every little scrap of foil off the top!

    Love love love this!

    Just mixed up a batch of this ….. but used NUTELLA for half the peanut butter (did not have a full jar of PB). Can we say AWESOME!? OK, I know, not quite as thrifty. Thanks for your recipe — I have made this before but never knew to microwave it, that really helps with the spreading in the pan, and improves the final texture as well.
    QUESTION: How do you package it for bake sales? The batch I just made is for exactly that!

    • Michele says:

      Wow what a great idea to use nutella! Yum!
      When I pacakge for back sales I usually cut into 3 or 4 one inch squares put it on a small styrofoam plate and cover with plastic wrap!

      Good Luck with the sale!
