High Five Recipes: Peanut Butter Honey Fudge

High Five Recipes 2

You know me…I love me some fudge.  This is by far the easiest fudge I have ever made.   And the healthiest.

Peanut Butter Honey Fudge

Peanut Butter Honey FudgeYum

1 cup natural peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until the chocolate chips are melted and blended in (about 30 seconds).

Spread fudge into an 8×8 inch pan. Refrigerate until solid. Cut into 1 inch squares.
————————————

Now, you might be thinking…3/4 cup of honey?! That’s going to take up a lot of my honey! (Yes, Pooh Bear, you’re right.)

But you cut this fudge into little squares, and it really does go a long way. OOh, and it’s so simple and yummy! (So sorry all you peanut allergy friends out there!)

This is a super simple dessert to throw together real quickly to take somewhere…no baking involved. Hardly any time involved. Very little mess involved.

Oh, and you’ve gotta love a High Five Recipe with only THREE ingredients!! :)

    This sounds so good. I am going to have to try it. Just curious what do you use for chocolate and peanut butter. I am figuring healthy kinds or semi healthy. :)

    Popcorn chicken please. :)

    This sounds so yummy, I can’t wait to try it! One question though, could you use molasses in place of all or part of the honey?

    Ohh, yummy! Where do you get your chocolate chips? I can’t find any without soy or chemicals. And I can’t seem to find a recipe for making milk chocolate chips either.

    And I’d love to see the popcorn chicken recipe.

    Hello there, I have left a comment here before, but under a different email. I have had to change my email as someone has stolen my email and contacted all my contacts. They have sent an email that I am in England and lost my wllet and need money. This is not true. I am very much at home in Edmonton, Alberta.

    I am letting you know just in case you ever sent me an email. I don’t think you were on my list, but i wanted to be sure you were notified in case you did get this email.

    My new email is caralee@live.com . Please delete my previous email address.

    Much Appreciated,

    Charmayne Khan

    You just can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter! This looks so good.

    I’m also voting for popcorn chicken. :) Thank you so much, Laura! I am enjoying this series.

    Lynn…I use Natural Value peanut butter that I order from Azure Standard.

    The chocolate chips I usually use for this fudge is just Hershey’s milk chocolate that I get from Walmart. I need to look into what they have from Azure Standard.

    Michelle…I’m sure you could use molasses for all or part of the honey…I’d say experiment and see what ya get!

    ooohhh..fudge. Be still my heart. The wonderful thing about this recipe is I have all the ingredients in my cabinets right now!

    And I think either of those recipes, chicken or angeled (we call them stuffed) eggs, sound yummy!

    My kids love popcorn chicken from the store. If I could make it at home that would be great. So popcorn chicken please.

  9. says

    Hmmm, I don’t have any milk chocolate chips, but have dark… Think I’ll be experimenting because it will be another week before I go to the grocery store and I absolutely CANNOT wait that long to try this fudge!!!

    Popcorn chicken, please.

    Nope- I’m not mad that I’m a peanut free mom and that you posted this because I have a whole gallon of honey and a big fat jar of SUNBUTTER! My vote is for popcorn chicken although I love that you call them angeled egss- that is just too cute!

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, the fudge looks good.
    both sound good, if i have to choose, i go with the popcorn chicken.

    Popcorn chicken vote here. I”m about to go and prepare your recipe for chicken nuggets and homemade fries for our dinner tonight!

  13. Barbara says

    I know I’m already outvoted, but I would choose the eggs. My kids won’t eat them, but since they eat every recipe of yours that I make, I thought I’d like to try your recipe!

    I think I’ll get one of the kids to make this fudge. They like “real” peanut butter (the yucky kind with lots of preservatives) instead of my natural brand. However, if the pb comes cleverly disguised as fudge, then they’ll eat it for sure.

    I just tuned in to your blog today, as a link from another friend’s blog who got it from a friend of hers…..These recipes sound good. Whichever one you post next, I’ll try it. When we lived in Nashville, TN back in the 1960’s my mom was asked to bring Dressed eggs to the church potluck. We were from Montana, and she thought it might be some southern specialty, so she asked someone how to make them. When she found out, she said, “Oh, you mean deviled eggs!” Well, that didn’t go over too well in a CHURCH setting.

    Maybe I should make this kind next Christmas instead of the 5 pound wonder recipe that is still on my hips. (I’d eat it all again though; I think it was worth it. But now I must stop thinking about it or I will be sorely tempted to make some again. Do you think fudge should be an Easter tradition as well as a Christmas tradition?!)

    This fudge looks amazing and I NEED chocoalte in a HUGE way right now! I may have eaten some chololate chips straight out of the bag today while my kids weren’t looking! One of those days when only chocolate can soothe the soul!!! LOL!

    PS: Bring the popcorn chicken!!!

    Popcorn chicken!

    We call them angeled eggs too!!! I cringe when people call them deviled eggs lol.

    I’m a new reader, visiting from Tammy’s blog. This looks like a fantastic recipe. I have eight little Lambies and one handsome Honey! We eat dessert only on Saturdays, so this will get a doubling and a try this week.

    I look forward to seeing more simple and healthy recipes!

    I finally got around to making this! Oh SO yummy!! The best part is, my daughter can eat it! She is gluten-free & dairy-free so fudge is a real treat for her. Thanks for the great recipe!

    I just made this. I was excited to see that it did not call for butter, since my daughter was just diagnosed with a soy and dairy allergy. It was my first time using non-dairy chocolate chips and all I could find was semi sweet. It turned out great and lasted about a day, with our family of six, only because it was so rich that we had to eat little bits at a time. Thanks so much!

    Wow! I saw this recipe about a month ago, but didn’t get to try it until today (I was too busy making mudballs!). It is so delicious, I need to put it away so it lasts until the kids get up from their naps! :-) Thanks for all the blogging, Laura. I thoroughly enjoy it and have learned a lot!

    A yummy delight! We used crunchy peanut butter. We will probably try adding rolled oats sometime…won’t be fudge but might be good.

  24. CherylH says

    This sounds delicious and another great way to get my granddaughter to eat peanut butter. But I’ll probably use Agave syrup. Similar consistency, so should work well. Thanks for the great recipes! It’s so great to stumble upon a site where health is as much a focus as pleasure (and pleasure, obviously, as much a focus as health!). Yum!

    I was wondering, could I put 1/2 more sup of peanut butter to replace the chocolatee chips. If not what could I replace the chocolate chipes with?

    [Reply]

    Laura Reply:

    I would imagine that it would work with more pb and no choc chips, but I don’t know. It sure won’t taste yucky, so it’s worth a try!

    I made something like this at Christmas, and the peanut butter version was the best. I dont think I had chocolate chips though for the chocolate fudge :(. I will have to try making my own! As for those who cant have peanuts why not use almond or another nut butter?

  27. says

    I’ve never made fudge before, this recipe looks fantastic! My question…does it need to be stored in the fridge? How long can I keep it around for?

    [Reply]

    Laura Reply:

    I do store them in the fridge. I’d say they’ll last for up to two weeks or so.

    I’m going to make this with sunbutter or almond butter and add some coconut cream concentrate. Yum!!!

    When I was little my dad used to make me his poor man ice cream topping, and this reminded me of it. It was maple syrup and peanut butter mixed together. I love this recipe b/c of the chocolate in it. So….. I am going to use this recipe and pour it over my ice cream when it is warm, and then next time use the syrup instead of the honey and see how it is! (My dad would hate it though, he hates chocolate!)

    4 tsp. orange extract

    Directions
    1. Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined.

    2.Place in a small dish and place in the fridge to firm. I use a loaf pan.

    Can I ask where you purchase your honey from?

    I buy it locally from a man who has several honey bee hives.

  32. Nita says

    This was soooo easy. I only had 1/2 cup of honey so I also added 1/4 cup of real maple syrup and it was Sooo good. Wow! Thanks, Laura.

    [Reply]

  33. Julie says

    So, I am wondering if this would turn out if I substituted Sunbutter for peanut butter (kiddo is anaphylactic to peanuts) and used a combo of agave nectar and maple syrup in place of the honey (I am allergic to honey). Crazy that I would even click on this recipe, huh?

    I think it should work!

    So, it started with a text to a friend, “Do you think you could make fudge with honey instead of sugar?” …..Google……Click…..See this recipe…..Get dressed…..Get Paid…..Buy the THREE ingredients……..Throw it all in a sauce pan and stir it over heat…….pack it in a case…..it’s cooling down now……

    Literally I had no time to sit and think about doing this one, I just saw it and did it. BTW with mine I put about 4x the amount of chocolate chips and a 1/4 cup more of honey. I like honey :)

    He there! :-) was wondering if you had to put chocolate in it. My husband has been wanted just regular peanut butter honey fudge. Is it possible? His dad told him when he was a little kid the ate syrup an peanut butter mixed together. Do you know of any dessert that I could make that resembles that as well? Thanks so very much for your time. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Laura Reply:

    I think it would work fine to leave out the chocolate chips, but you probably want to cut down the honey to about 1/2 cup.
