May 12th is National Nutty Fudge Day; November 20th is National Peanut Butter Fudge Day.
Here’s a recipe that covers both holidays! For National Nutty Fudge Day, add the honey-roasted peanuts.
An American confection, fudge was a happy accent in the 1880s, created by a woman trying to make caramels.
Read the history of fudge and you’ll see that it wasn’t so easy to re-create the accident.
Over time, however, recipes and techniques were perfected. The original recipe(s) used cream and butter. Today, everything from sweetened condensed milk to non-dairy milks are used.
You need just three ingredients to make this peanut butter fudge from Justin’s, an artisan specialist in nut butters.
RECIPE: PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
1. BRING the sugar and almond milk to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly for 2 minutes, then remove from the heat.
2. MIX in the peanut butter. You can add the optional mix-ins and stir, or use them as a topping, pressing lightly. Spread into a greased 8″ x 8″ pan and refrigerate until set. Cut into squares.
