Why you’ll love 2-ingredient peanut butter fudge

2 ingredients: I’m serious about this! All you need is white chocolate chips and peanut butter to make this simple dessert. I also top with flakey sea salt, but that’s optional.

Super decadent: This recipe might be incredibly easy, but it’s also super satisfying. This tastes like rich and creamy fudge without all the work.

No cook: Unlike traditional fudge, you won’t need to fuss over the stove with this no-cook recipe.

No frosting: Most 2-ingredient peanut butter fudge recipes uses creamy peanut butter and frosting. My version uses natural peanut butter and white chocolate, and I think it’s way better.

Ingredients

You’ll only need two ingredients to make this no-cook fudge recipe.

Natural peanut butter: You’re looking for the kind with just “peanuts” on the label (it’s okay if salt is in there too). You’ll also want to make sure it’s fresh and runny, or your fudge may be dry. Smooth or crunchy both work. I don’t recommend using sweetened creamy peanut butter for this recipe.

White chocolate chips: I used white chocolate chips instead of the frosting you see in most recipes because I prefer the flavor. You could also substitute milk chocolate chips if you’d prefer.

Swaps and additions

  • Swap natural peanut butter for almond butter or another nut butter
  • Try milk or dark chocolate chips instead of white chocolate chips
  • Use dairy-free chocolate chips if you have dietary restrictions
  • Top your no-cook fudge with whole chocolate chips or crushed nuts before refrigerating

Step-by-step instructions

Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside. Add your peanut butter to a medium mixing bowl, and set aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave white chocolate chips until just melted. Warm in 15-second intervals, stirring well in between. Be careful not to over-heat your chocolate chips.

Pour white chocolate into the mixing bowl with peanut butter, and stir until combined and smooth.

Top tips

Use runny peanut butter: If your peanut butter is older and more firm, your fudge might be dry. Fresh, runny peanut butter will produce the best texture.

Buy good quality chocolate: Find a white chocolate you really love for the best results.

Let it cool before slicing: Make sure your 2-ingredient peanut butter fudge is totally cooled and set before slicing.

Store in the fridge: The fudge can melt if stored at room temperature. Make sure it’s kept stored in the fridge.
