This is truly a No Fail Chocolate or Peanut Butter Fudge recipe! I’ve been making it for decades and it always turns out just right. Fudge is one of those candies that is always on my treats table at Christmas. It’s not something I make at any other time of year. That’s probably a good thing! You’ll love how easy this fudge is to make.
I’ve used a modified version of the recipe found on the back of Kraft Jet Puffed Marshmallow Creme for as long as I’ve been making fudge. I love the texture of this fudge. It’s not hard, but it’s firm and melts in your mouth. It is super easy to make and it never fails. Ever.
I always make at least two batches of both chocolate and peanut butter fudge during the holidays. The chocolate can be made with or without pecans, depending upon your choice. I prefer it without the nuts, but a lot of my family want the pecans added.
The peanut butter fudge is melt in your mouth delicious! It’s smooth and creamy and full of flavor.

There are tons of fudge recipes out there and I’ve tried many of them. But, this one is my favorite and I love that I never have to hope that it sets because it always does!
If you give this recipe a try, you won’t be disappointed! This takes less than 20 minutes of prep and cooking time. Waiting for a couple of hours until it’s ready to cut is the most difficult part! Of course, in the meantime, there is always a little left on the spoon.
