Brought to you by JELL-O. Anything can go wrong during the holidays. Except these recipes.
Welcome! Do these peanut butter fudge bites have you drooling?
That’s the exact effect that they have on me!
Have I mentioned that this peanut butter fudge recipe is just about the EASIEST no-bake dessert ever? You are going to LOVE this recipe!!
My mom’s Aunt Fern made a special fudge every year from a heavily guarded secret recipe. She refused to share her secret for years, despite the urgings of the other women in the family.
Her fudge remained a favorite holiday treat for years and she was the only one who would make it. Or at least that’s the story I’ve been told.
By the time I came around, my mom had been making Aunt Fern’s fudge for years. Because as much as Aunt Fern didn’t want to share her recipe, her sister, Violet didn’t care…and Violet had the recipe, too. The secret was out.
This holiday season I have a fudge recipe that is just as exciting as Aunt Fern’s not-so-secret recipe, with two very distinct differences: I am more than happy to share this recipe and my recipe is fast and easy to make (I can’t say the same about Aunt Fern’s fudge).
This peanut butter fudge with butterscotch JELL-O Instant Pudding was an instant hit. We have found a new permanent item on our Christmas cookie and candy plates that we deliver to neighbors.
I think I’ve eaten at least 10 of these peanut butter fudge bites myself.
Can you blame me?

What a great recipe! These sound amazing, thanks for sharing at Merry Monday!
Yum, peanut butter fudge! Thank you for sharing the family recipe with us at the #HomeMattersParty
For some odd reason, my recipe plugin occasionally/randomly changes fractions to question marks. The recipe calls for 1/3 cup water. I’ve edited that back in the recipe. Hopefully it will stick! Thanks for pointing that out so that I could fix it! :)
Why the question mark next to water ? Is there an amount ?

We definitely have some peanut butter fanatics in my household! I’d love to try this delicious recipe!
Oh, that looks amazing. The butterscotch pudding sounds like the perfect flavor to go with the peanut butter!
So quick and easy. What a great gift!

I seriously had no idea you could make fudge using JELL-O! I always eat my Gram’s Peanut Butter fudge because it’s amazing, but it’s a lot of work to make. I think this recipe looks more manageable.
hello yum! Oh my goodness this recipe looks amazing. I can’t wait to try this recipe

That is a fun story about Aunt Fern and her fudge. Your Jello fudge looks yummy. I’d never guess you could make fudge with a pudding mix. Cool! I’m putting it on my must try list for sure!

Smooth and creamy and perfectly sized for bite after bite. I love these!

Oh my…I love fudge and peanut butter – this is too good to be true. Have got to try this! :)
I love peanut butter — can’t wait to try this. Luckily, I have a house full of taste testers that will be happy if I make it too.
I am going to make a batch of this. The kids love peanut butter fudge and this looks so simple,
This looks delicious! I have never made my own peanut butter fudge, but my Mom made some last year and it was really good.
I think I’m in love – I’m totally making this for Christmas Eve!
Mistee Dawn says
They all look amazing, hard to choose just one. I do love fudge though. And that look delish!
WHAT??? This sounds fantastic!!! MUST TRY!!!
I think this is the easiest recipe for peanut butter fudge ever. I will be making this over the weekend!
I’m all about easy! This looks great! It’d be fun to play around with their different flavors for variety.
Your fudge looks so good! I use JELL-O in a ton of my recipes but never thought to use it to make fudge, that’s a fab idea!
Jennifer @TheRebelChick says
