Butterscotch Peanut Fudge – butterscotch, peanut butter, and peanuts! This is going to be your new favorite fudge recipe. It’s the perfect mix of sweet and salty!
I want you all to be proud of me. Not only do I have decorations up, I’ve even started buying presents.
This is a big deal because up until about 3 days ago, my kids were only getting donations to my favorite charities in their name.
I have had quite the year.
At some point in the near future, I’ve got to A) figure out where to move and B) move myself, 3 kids, 3 dogs, and all our stuff.
So I am very much anti-stuff right now. I don’t want to bring anything else into the house that I will then have to store and then move. I just cannot handle anything else.
But yeah, I gave in and bought them a few things and they’ll be happy with what they get, dangit.
Butterscotch Peanut Fudge!
So this fudge.
I realize this is probably a weird fudge to most people.
But hear me out.
My favorite way to eat candy corn (stick with me) is with salted peanuts. And then one year when I ran out of candy corn, I realized that butterscotch chips and salted peanuts are just as delicious together. Seriously, go pour a couple of each into your hand and then toss it all into your mouth.
Now admit that I was right.
This fudge is that but… fudgy.
This is one of my favorite fudge recipes. Have you noticed that I’m not super into chocolate fudge? I like the weird ones like this one or that Pumpkin Pie one. Definitely give this a try if you’re into the weird candy like I am!
Also, really easy. No need for a candy thermometer. You literally just melt everything together and pour it in a pan.
