It’s the middle of summer and the last thing you are probably thinking about is making fudge. Am I right? It’s okay, I get you. You are probably one of those people who only make it around the holidays? You only eat pumpkin desserts in the fall, and carrot cake is only made at Easter.

If that’s you, then please PIN this recipe for Christmas. Ha! If you LOVE eating outside the box then stay put. Because this Maple Peanut Butter Fudge is fantastic and is meant to be eaten all year long.

No seriously. 5 minutes over the stovetop, no oven required, what’s not to love about this easy, delicious fudge recipe? No candy thermometer? No problem… this fudge recipe doesn’t require it.

Every beach vacation we go on, there is always a little mom and pop fudge store. You know the one I’m talking about. They have dozens of flavors, and you pick the size box you want, they cut you a hunk of fudge, and off you go. Only to accidentally leave that fudge in your blazing hot car while you are on the beach. Whoops.

I love the combo of maple and peanut butter. There is something so scrumptious and rich about sinking your teeth into a soft fudge. On a recent vacation I saw this flavor combo and while I didn’t try it that time, I tucked it away in my brain (Okay fine, I wrote it down), knowing I would want to try it at home.

You guys. If you LOVE peanut butter you MUST try this. I know I’ve made several peanut butter fudge recipes in the past… but this one is different. The maple adds so much flavor you’d be surprised. And before you even ask… no, you may NOT substitute maple syrup for the maple flavoring in this recipe. The maple flavoring can be found on Amazon or in your grocery store near the vanilla extract. It’s worth picking up a bottle… because you’ll want it to make these Maple Iced Oatmeal cookies and this Maple Walnut Fudge.
