Peanut cannabutter fudge squares with M&M's
Fudge is an amazing dessert that is loved by just about everyone. There are literally thousands of different flavors that you can make, and it doesn’t take much to prepare. Most fudge recipe choices out there take quite a bit of time, a thermometer, and multiple other ingredients and tools that the average person probably doesn’t keep on hand, but this peanut butter fudge is different.
You can make it without a stove, a thermometer, and without having to wait several hours for results, which is a major win when you find yourself with the munchies and no motivation to run to the store. It can also be dressed up a bit by adding unique toppings and mixes that you love, like candies, sugar, chocolate chips, peanuts, or a chocolate bar broken up into bit that contains all of that.
The choice is entirely yours, and the options with this cannabutter base recipe are nearly limitless, so go crazy and have a little fun while you’re at it.
Preparation time: 2 hours
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Calories per serving: 192
- 3 ½ cups icing sugar
- 1 cup M&M’s
- 1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
- 1 cup cannabutter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Cooking spray
- Large microwave-safe bowl
- 8x8 baking pan
- Wooden spoon
- Aluminum foil
- Saran wrap
Line a deep baking pan with aluminum foil, then spray it with an even coating of cooking oil. Leave plenty of extra hanging from all sides to act as handles later for easy removal.
Add the cannabutter and peanut butter to a microwave-safe bowl. At this point, they will be quite thick but it’s a good idea to mix them together as much as you can so that the heat is distributed evenly.
Put the bowl full of ingredients into a microwave, and then heat the mixture on high for 1 minute.
Retrieve the bowl from the microwave and give it a good stir.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 for as long as it takes for the peanut butter and cannabutter to completely melt so that they can blend with ease.
It’s time to add in the vanilla and make sure that it’s well incorporated before moving onto the dry stuff.
You want to add the icing sugar slowly so that you can mix it in as you go. The more you add, the thicker the mixture will get, but it should never be difficult to do, so if it gets hard to move the spoon around in circles, then your measurements might be off a bit, which means that you won’t need all of the icing sugar called for in this fudge recipe.
Last but not least is the M&M’s, now is the perfect time to add them to the mixture.
Scoop the peanut butter fudge mix into the baking pan until all of it is transferred.
Use a spatula to smooth out the surface of the fudge if you want a sleek store-bought look, and then cover it all in saran wrap.
Now you can put the peanut cannabutter fudge into the fridge to set, which will take approximately 2 hours.
After the long wait is over, take the fudge block out of the fridge and cut it into squares to serve or to store it away for later.
