Easy Peanut Butter Fudge in cupcake wrappers stacked on a cloth with Justin's peanut butter and milk jar in the background

Chocolate fudge is a classic treat that’s been made for hundreds of years. Probably. I don’t know the history of fudge, but I do know the history of my Easy Peanut Butter Fudge! It’s made with JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter and is a fun new take on the historic delicacy.

 

Spicy Peanut Sauce used to dip dumplings being held with brown wooden chopsticks on a white background

I can’t get enough of this Spicy Peanut Sauce. Fresh ginger, garlic, and of course, JUSTIN’S® Honey Peanut Butter. It’s so good I could drink it right from the bowl. Of course, I’d never do that. Maybe.
