Peanut Butter Fudge

10 Minute Peanut Butter Fudge


This 10 minute peanut butter fudge uses crushed saltines for the ultimate salty sweet flavor combo. This stuff is addicting!


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 30 Saltine crackers, finely crushed in a food processor or blender (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • coarse sea salt


  1. Crush the crackers into fine crumbs, depending on how much texture you want in your fudge. Place in a large mixing bowl with the peanut butter.
  2. Combine the sugar, milk, and butter in a saucepan over medium low heat. Once the mixture starts boiling, turn on a timer for 1 minute. The mixture will look a little frothy. Remove from the heat after 1 minute and pour immediately over the crackers and peanut butter. Add the vanilla and stir to combine until an even, soft dough forms.
  3. Press the dough into a 9-inch glass baking dish (or other dish) lined with parchment paper if desired. Allow to cool for at least 1 hour or until firm enough to cut into squares – it sets up pretty quickly in the refrigerator.
  4. Melt the chocolate chips and drizzle over the fudge. Sprinkle with sea salt.


Here’s a link that shows the size of crackers that I used. I didn’t break them apart – I just counted the sheets with three smaller pieces as one cracker.
