Peanut Butter Fudge

Candy Recipe

Three simple ingredients make up the first tasty Peanut Butter Fudge. Uses light margarine, peanut butter and powdered sugar. We also have Peanut Butter Fudge Crunchies, which are diabetic friendly. Sweetened naturally with honey plus adds the sweet and satisfying crunch of both Cheerios cereal and fat free pretzels. And then, yet a 3rd option! This one is similar to the first in that it only contains 3 simple, every day ingredients; however, it uses corn flakes for crunch and contains NO margarine. The peanut butter supplies all you need. Honey sweetens. I'm not done! I then offer up a low carb version of peanut butter fudge! This recipe uses unsweetened cocoa and sweetener in place of sugar.
