How To Make Delicious Peanut Butter Fudge

25 October 2016 | Post A Comment

Fudge is one of my favourites treats to eat and its really fun to make when you can get it right. This is the best method I have come across, it's really easy to get a good texture, even if you're new to making fudge and tastes heavenly. I would recommend investing in a sugar thermometer, they're really cheap and really help getting the temperature accurate. You can do it without but it's a bit hit and miss if you'll get the mixture right or not.

What you'll need...

500g sugar
1 tbsp. glucose syrup (can be bought in the baking section of most supermarkets)
150ml milk (whole is best)
150g butter
150g crunchy peanut butter

Line a loaf tin with cling film and fill a large bowl with really cold water. Heat all the ingredients very slowly on a low heat until everything has melted and dissolved. Brush the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush to get rid of any undissolved sugar crystals as leaving them can make fudge grainy. Place the thermometer in the mixture and bring to the boil. When it reaches 116c quickly put the pan in the cold water and leave for 5 minutes. Then beat the fudge until thick with an electric whisk or a a hand whisk until your arm hurts too much to carry on and pour into the prepared tin. Leave until it is completely cold before cutting.

I told you it was easy! If you don't have a thermometer, you need a small bowl of cold water. When the fudge has been boiling for around 2 minutes, take a teaspoon of the mixture and place into the water, if you can mould it into a ball with your fingers it has reached soft ball stage and is ready to go!

Have you ever tried making fudge? Do you think you'll be having a go at making this?
