I just made this fudge but it's not creamy - it's crumbly. Should I add more peanut butter or butter? Thank you!

I agree with the other reviews that this needs more powdered sugar (2 pounds is about right). Thankfully I had more on hand or this would have been a wasted batch of fudge. Once you adjust the powdered sugar this is really a good fudge recipe.

Tastes Great but required almost 2lbs of powdered sugar to get the right consistency.

First of all let me start out by saying that this fudge tastes Fantastic. But for me to make the consistencey come out right I had to add almost a whole 2 lb bag of XXXX sugar. After I did that the consistencey was perfect, and best of all it is a recipe that can be recreated consistently without variation. But I do have one problem with this and that is that it is SO greasy. After it is made it sweats the butter out. So what I did was lay it on absorbent paper towels and laid more on top of it and let is set overnight and it absorbed most of the excess butter. I had considered using less butter to make it with but was afraid it would only make less fudge and would still come out the same. All in all, I give it a 4 out of 5 because it really is good fudge and the excess butter can be dealt with fairly easily.
CDKitchen Note: It might depend on the brand/type of peanut butter you use as to how well it blends with the butter. Also my guess is that the melted butter should be at room temp, not still warm as that could cause separation.
