An easy no-bake recipe for creamy, rich, decadent Turtle Peanut Butter Fudge.
If there is one thing I have a weakness for, it’s fudge.
My very first real job was at a large retail craft store. We sold everything from doll heads to t-shirt paint to yarn. We also had a groovy air pop popcorn machine that would bring the store to it’s knees every time it ran because the smell of fresh buttered popcorn cannot be ignored, no matter how hard you may try. But even the hot buttered popcorn could not compare to the homemade trays of fudge. We sold chocolate fudge, vanilla, chocolate peanut butter, walnut and probably a few more flavors I cant remember now (it’s been a minute.. ) and I will be honest, we were not supposed to sample the fudge but I TOTALLY sampled the fudge and to this day, it’s honestly one of my favorite things to indulge in.
That is also why I can’t ever have it in my house for any amount of time .. #moderationwhat
Then it happened .. that middle of the night food craving / inspiration that causes us food bloggers to jump out of bed to write down what recipe we need to write next.
Turtle Peanut Butter Fudge is just that midnight bright idea brought to life. This is such a yummy treat… SERIOUSLY.. I brought a pan of this into my office and the entire pan was G-O-N-E in half an hour. That’s a statement when you work with a bunch of women who really try to watch what they eat!
The second best part of this amazing Turtle Peanut Butter Fudge recipe is that it only has 5 ingredients, it’s a no-bake dish and takes just minutes to make. Talk about the perfect dessert to add to your holiday list of things To Do. This is perfect for that office potluck or to bring out for your holiday party or even to wrap up all pretty and give as a gift to family and friends (PS.. don’t forget to show your appreciation to the people who keep your life on track.. like the postman and your nail tech and your pool guy).
So even though it’s always dangerous to keep sweets around the house, I promise this Turtle Peanut Butter Fudge is worth it!!
Besides, you deserve it 🙂
