  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk I used fat-free
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioner's powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted cashews
  • Optional 1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Spray an 8" or 9" square brownie pan lightly with non-stick spray. (I used a 9")
  • Add peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk in a large microwave-safe bowl.
  • Heat in microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir. Return to microwave for 20 seconds. Repeat until peanut butter and milk are well incorporated.
  • Add salt and vanilla and stir until well blended.
  • Add confectioner's sugar gradually until fudge's consistency becomes thick.
  • Add cashews and stir in, then pour into prepared pan and spread out.
  • Add a few extra cashews to top and press in gently.
  • Add mini chocolate chips, but don't press in.
  • Fudge will still be warm, so they will stick to the fudge.
  • Chill in refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.
  • Cut into squares and enjoy!
