Is there a Christmas dish or cookie that takes you back to your childhood? For me, this peanut butter fudge is filled with yummy memories. I likely was thinking about the fudge more than baby Jesus in the manger at  Christmas Eve Mass. Returning home from Christmas Eve mass was always a late night or early morning table of sandwiches, side dishes, cookies and this fudge recipe.

Not only does this fudge taste amazing it makes for a great hostesss or neighbor gift. It packs well and looks so pretty in little blocks of peanut butter.

You know what else I love about this fudge? There is no marshmallow fluff in this recipe. And despite my love for all things chocolate, I think I could be a peanut butter fudge covert. Or maybe just make both recipes during the holidays.

This 5 ingredient fudge is amazing. It is both creamy and dense. Which is how I like my fudge and every dessert bar recipe.

And, in amazing news, this is one of maybe five recipes I did not tweak. Not one tweak. I found the recipe here.

If you have followed me for a while or you know my sister you know I struggle to not tweak and substitute ingredients and directions.

Just check out a few of my recipes.

5 INGREDIENT PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE

This fudge is everything you want it to be during the holidays. It has a total of 5 ingredients, and one of those ingredients is a dash of salt.

This recipe only requires a saucepan and ten minutes. The best part is you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry this time of year.

I have plans to double the batch and deliver to a few neighbors! I will add this three-ingredient treat too.
