Commonly Asked Questions

Can I refrigerate my peanut butter fudge?

You can! Just make sure to store them in an air-tight container to keep them from drying out so that they retain their fudgy texture.

How do I keep my fudge from sticking to the bottom of the pan?

A great tip provided on the instructions is to butter your pan before pouring the fudge mixture. Many also try to line their pan with baking paper or aluminum, then spraying a bit of cooking oil, for easier release of the fudge.

What kind of dairy-free milk can I use for this recipe?

If you don’t fancy whole milk, worry not! A great alternative for this peanut butter fudge recipe would be coconut milk, which will taste just as delightful. Plus, you get some added flavor of coconut into the mix too.
