Peanut Butter Jelly Fudge

Peanut Butter Jelly Fudge

It’s that time again where a few foodies come together and we create a themed dessert recipe. This month is peanut butter and jelly or jam. I had a crazy idea to make peanut butter jelly fudge. It has two of my favorite combinations in it, so it had to be a winner. Peanut butter + fudge and peanut butter + jelly are two pairings that will win me over immediately.

I love when I bite into a piece of this fudge and find a pocket of concord grape jam. It makes my day. every. time.

I tried mixing the jam into the fudge. Don’t do that. It was the ugliest fudge. Tasted amazing, but the appearance would not sell it. Not that this fudge is gorgeous, but I couldn’t give up on it!

I shared this peanut butter fudge recipe a little over a year ago, but it’s my very favorite. I was thinking about mixing it up, but I couldn’t bring myself to make another recipe. Yes, it’s that good. I promise.

I also canned the concord grape jam that I used, but feel free to use store bought and any jam/jelly you like will do. If you don’t care for grape, try strawberry. Get crazy with it.

      Thank you, Christie! It wasn’t playing well any other way, but it ended up being perfect as the filling.

      I know, peanut butter fudge is such a weakness of mine. Add jelly to the mix and I can’t even.. handle it. I couldn’t stop over-indulging in it. 😀
