As promised here is one more gluten-free candy recipe! For our neighbor holiday gifts this year I made plates with this fudge, hug m&m; pretzel bites, and my favorite soft, buttery caramels. A delicious trio if I do say so!

A few months back my friend Leanne brought this fudge to a get together with some friends. It was so delicious I’ve thought about it since! In the past I have made the fudge recipe from the back of marshmallow creme jars. This fudge is essentially that, but livened up a bit with a peanut butter layer.

The secret great thing about fudge is that it is actually really easy to make. If you speak my same language, we’re talking rice krispies treats fast. 
 A few of my favorite things!
Now get all these treats out of my house! I love making candy every year. Happy Holidays to all!

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
My favorite marshmallow creme fudge made with a peanut butter twist!
Serves: 40-50 pieces
  • 3 cups sugar
  • ¾ cup butter
  • ⅔ cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 oz package semi sweet chocolate pieces
  • 7 oz. jar Marshmallow Creme (I like Kraft)
  • ½ cup peanut butter (now is a time to use something like Jif)
  1. Combine 1½ cups sugar, 6 tablespoons butter and ⅓ cup evaporated milk in a medium pot.
  2. Bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and continue boiling for 4 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate pieces until melted.
  5. Add 1 cup (1/2 jar) marshmallow creme and ½ teaspoon vanilla. Beat until well blended.
  6. Pour into greased 13 X 9 pan.
  7. Repeat with remaining ingredients substituting peanut butter and spread over chocolate.
  8. Then, cool at room temperature and cut into squares.
