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.

I always use a double boiler because the microwave and I don’t agree on melting chocolate.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Help please I made this recipe yesterday morning and followed everything except I didn’t add banana chips. Well I finished it and put it away to chill to set and here it is 9:30pm the next day and it still hasn’t set , I even tried freezing it and it is still sticky and not hard enough to cut.
Is there anything else I can do or should I just pass spoons around for everyone to dig in. lol

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?

Do you cut the banana chips from a fresh banana or do you buy the bag of banana chipe? Thanks

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. 😉

I can’t wait to try this recipe! How do you stay so thin with all these awesome recipes???

Dec 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!

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.

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!

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!

Dec 21, 2012 2:26 pm

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

Dec 21, 2012 5:12 am

made this last night but I did………… very, very lightly drizzled melted chocolate on top.
It is soooooooooooo good.
Thank U 4 sharing the recipe

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!

Dec 20, 2012 8:10 pm

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!

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.

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