When we heard that Santa likes to give his reindeer peanut butter treats after a busy night delivering presents, we thought we'd borrow the idea and make this very creamy, peanut butter-based recipe for Reindeer Fudge. Now, we can all enjoy this holiday treat!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter
  • 4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons milk
What To Do:
  1. Coat a 9-inch glass microwaveable pie plate with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large microwaveable bowl, combine peanut butter and butter. Microwave at 80% power 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from  microwave and add remaining ingredients; mix well and press into pie plate. Microwave at 80% power for an additional 1 minute.
     
  3. Place in refrigerator 1 to 2 hours, or until firm, then remove and cut into eight wedges.
Notes
  • MAKE THEM MERRY! Wrap your fudge in colorful plastic wrap and tie with festive ribbons. You might even want to add beaded eyes and a felt nose to the wrapper. And don't forget to package your edible gift with an ornament or even attach the recipe. Holiday fudge makes a great stocking stuffer, too!

Reindeer Fudge was a big hit with my family as I gave them out as presents. Quick and delicious!!!!!

I don't own (or want) a microwave. How would I make this on the stove?

We haven't tried making this peanut butter fudge on the stove, but you might try it by heating the peanut butter and butter in a saucepan over low heat until everything is combined. Then, after adding the rest of the ingredients and placing it in a pie plate, cover it with some foil and place it in a low oven for 15 minutes. Give that a try and let us know how it comes out! Happy Holidays!

That's what we called peanut butter pinwheels!

I Dad used to make this for us when I was little. He just made the sugar & milk and rolled it out into a circle, spread the peanut butter on it rolled it us and sliced it into 1/2 " pieces and we loved it. I will try this one too. It sounds great

To CBBurkett What you are remembering is called peanut butter pinwheels. My mother used to make them also. She added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract to the milk/pwdrd sugar mixture. The milk was added a little at a time until she got a "dough-like" product, which was rolled out with a rolling pin into a circle. That was covered with peanut butter, then carefully rolled up and cut into pieces about an inch wide. Turned on its side, it looks like a pinwheel! Delicious!
