Peanut Butter Banana Fudge



It’s a holiday staple, but I am a huge proponent of fudge in all the months.



It’s only fair.

Because I don’t get what makes fudge only good to gift.  I mean, don’t you sit around funneling fudge into your face all year long?

Well, you should.


Because fudge rules.


Also, I didn’t know it, but peanut butter and banana kinda rules too.

I always said that the flavor combination “wasn’t my favorite”.  Which are actually my code words for “yack, gross, sucks, blech.”

But I know some people really like it.


Well, I’ll tellyou…this fudge has changed my mind.

Elvis was onto something.


Peanut Butter Banana Fudge.

Hey, behbeh.
PhotobucketFirst grab your banana chips…
PhotobucketGive them a pretty good chop. You’ll need 3/4 cup…
PhotobucketOver a double boiler melt your peanut butter chips, 2 Tbsp butter and sweetened condensed milk.
I always use a double boiler because the microwave and I don’t agree on melting chocolate.
PhotobucketWhen that’s melted, stir in your banana chips.
PhotobucketNext up you’ll need your banana liquidy. It gave me the chance to use the miniature food processor that I thought I had to have.
PhotobucketAgain, over the double boiler, melt your white chocolate, butter and liquid banana…
PhotobucketWhen that’s melted, pour it over your peanut butter layer…
PhotobucketLet it set up and then cut into squares…
PhotobucketYou don’t have to eat on a tiny piece of wood, like I did.

PB & bananas is a stellar combo & love this fudge. And the mini food proc! I’ve always wanted one but wondered is this really necessary? I think it is!

Are you even serious right now?

I hope the world doesnt end tomorrow cause I don’t have time to make this fudge today. It looks so good i want to lick my monitor, except that would be gross cause I’m pretty sure my husband sneezed on it this morning. ew.

December 20, 2012 2:14 pm

genius flavor combo!

December 20, 2012 3:54 pm

Ahahaha. Tiny pieces of wood make fudge taste even better!

LOVE fudge! We always make it on Christmas Eve, and if I had it all year around, I would probably weight 200 pounds!
This looks like an interesting flavor, I might need to give pb and banana another shot.

Oh thank God someone else can’t melt chocolate in the microwave. I am lazy and I want it to work, but it always ends up not melting and then suddenly it’s one solid chunk of cooked chocolate. I am a huge banana & PB fan, so I love this!

December 20, 2012 9:26 pm

I never really know how I feel about the PB+banana combo either…but perhaps I could convince myself to love it with this fudge!

December 21, 2012 5:12 am

It is soooooooooooo good.
Thank U 4 sharing the recipe

Woah…omg, bananas and peanut butter together in a fudge? This blows my mind!

The whole “not my favorite” thing? When kiddo was younger, I made him say that instead of telling me that he didn’t like what I made for dinner. We went through a good two years there where everything was “not my favorite.” 😉

Such a great idea for fudge flavor!

Sounds fantastic 🙂 peanut butter and banana is my 2nd favourite combination (with peanut butter & chocolate grabbing the top spot!) Try a peanut butter and banana milkshake (peanut butter, banana, milk and icecream blended) – yum!

That fudge just looks so good – it’s to die for. If only I weren’t on a diet… You have to see this article on

Christmas sugar cookies I just found.

December 24, 2012 12:59 pm

can’t wait to try this one!!
also, you read my mind. The first thing I thought when I saw the picture: “But I don’t have any pieces of wood to serve it on! Noooooo…..”
Happy Holidays!

These look amazing! Definitely going to make these as gifts in the future! Thank you!

I feel like I can call you and ask this question, but we are complete strangers and well, that would be weird. What do you think about adding a cup of mini marshmallows right before I pour the PB layer in the pan? Bad idea? Would those crunchy mini marshmallow bits be good? Any thoughts, anybody? I’m afraid of change. 😉

This looks amazing! I so want to make this but have never seen peanut butter bits in Australia. What could I substitute them with? Would white chocolate bits and peanut butter work?
