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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

    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

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

    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?

    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
