REVIEW: 3 star recipe rating
I loved how easy this was to make, and how creamy it was. However if I were to make it over again i would use more peanut butter, less powdered sugar perhaps and maybe even a dash of salt to balance out the sweetness. Not enough peanut butter flavor and VERY sweet, which is saying something since I have a sweet tooth.

Tasted like I was eating a spoonful of sugar!

Well, fudge is supposed to be sweet. Was it only sugar flavor you tasted or was it just too sweet (with peanut butter flavor)?

Excellent recipe! This is very easy to make (as fudge recipes go) and comes out with a wonderful texture (I have found that a lot of fudge recipes come out gritty, but not this one!!!!).

Easy to make. However, too much confectioners sugar and too little peanut butter make it taste like a poor peanut butter frosting. If you like suggary frosting, you will love this recipe. If you want more flavor, I suggest you try another recipe.
