When we heard that Santa likes to give his reindeer peanut butter Christmas 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 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter
  • 4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon 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.


  • 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!

Since fudge is so easy to make and almost everyone likes it, it is a great recipe to make for parties and gifts. The reindeer wrapping would definitely be a hit with children during a holiday party. But, if you used them for a holiday party , you may want to cut them smaller because of all of the sugar.And it would be agood idea to add the recipe if you are giving this out as gifts.

This Reindeer Fudge is Great and just so cute! One I really want to try, it is so easy too no more standing at the hot stove stirring and watching a candy thermometer. The ingredients are simple and I love the way you cut and wrap the fudge. I need bigger eyes.. LOL Thank you for this free and fun recipe/craft idea.

Could artifical sugar be used instead? I'm diabetic and would like to save on the sugar content.

Unfortunately, we do not recommend using a sugar substitute in place of the sugar for this recipe, as it will not have the right consistency and will likely fall apart. You may want to try using 1/2 sugar and 1/2 sugar substitute, but we haven't tested this in the Test Kitchen, so we cannot guarantee the results. If you decide to give it a try, please let us know how it turned out!

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!
