Christmas Special | "No-Bake" Peanut Brownie Fudge | with making of Homemade Peanut Butter | Easy Peanut Chocolate Fudge
WOW! What a pure bliss it is to make a Super Chocolatey, Peanutty Fudge in just 10 minutes, that too, with "No-Baking", "No Compound Chocolate", and "No Cream". Wanna know another great thing? This Peanut Brownie Fudge hits the goal, getting pure goodness from the Homemade Peanut Butter. This recipe is really a Peanut Chocolate Fudge which I like to name as Peanut Brownie Fudge as it tastes very chocolatey.
Peanut Brownie Fudge is the Fudgy Chocolate version of mine prepared with "no Compound Chocolate" and "no Cream" which also needs "no Baking". There is Less Effort but Great Joy of munching the Fudge. Sounds Super, isn't it? Simply put, my Peanut Chocolate Fudge can be made in just 5 minutes if you have prepared Homemade Peanut Butter beforehand.
So, this post is gonna be a Double-Goal. We can learn to make super smooth homemade Peanut Butter and with the Homemade Peanut Butter, we can rock the "No-Bake" Peanut Brownie fudge with very simple ingredients in very less time.
Chocolate Fudge is the creamy delight with the delicious chocolatey flavour prepared by melting compound chocolate with the right amount of heavy cream added to it. But my version is totally different which just needs a cup of Roasted Peanuts to make a Smooth Peanut Butter which then goes into a cocoa mixture bowl to get the easiest Peanut Brownie Fudge which is totally Peanutty, Chocolatey and Fudgy that melts in the mouth in no-time.
Can we use Store-bought Peanut Butter?
- Yes! You can.
- If you opt to use Store-bought Peanut Butter, the job of making this fudge would be much easier than you think. It's just a 5 minutes job of mixing everything using a double boiling method.
- Though the store-bought Peanut butter could be used, I love to make it from the scratch. Homemade is always the best and the taste from the freshly roasted flavourful Peanuts would be indescribably good. Trust me, this just needs 5 minutes and your mixer would get the job done.
Homemade Peanut Butter when combined with the chocolate turns out to be a lovely fudge that you would never forget. Okie-Dokie! What to do and What not to do while making this super-easy fudge is very important to make the recipe fail-free. Come, let us discuss the common mistakes that we should not do while making this.
Dos and Don'ts:
- Keep the flame on low throughout the cooking process.
- Don't overdo. This is the mantra you should follow. Mix the ingredients as fast as you can, get it away from the burner and let it sit in the fridge to get it set into a beautiful fudge. Even in the double boiling method, mixing for a long time would make the butter separated from the mixture which we do not want in this recipe.
- Add a little milk, so that the Brownie will get the firm state once refrigerated. Adding more milk would hesitate the Brownie from sustaining its firmness. 'Two tablespoons' of milk is what I suggest and if the mixture still seems crumbled, add a tablespoon of extra milk.
- Always stick to the double-boiling method and make sure the bottom of the vessel in which you make the fudge mix should not touch the water in the pan under it. Avoid cooking directly over the flame since the butter could separate easily from the chocolate mixture.
- While making Peanut butter, once the oil starts to separate from the peanuts and the paste form is achieved, add a little peanut oil and honey to retain its density. Grinding the peanuts for a long time could make the Peanut Butter gooey.
The milk powder used in the recipe is optional, without which the Fudge would taste like a dark chocolatey Brownie. With the addition of little milk powder, the fudge would taste similar to milk chocolate with added flavour from the Super smooth Peanut Butter.
Try this and I bet, you can't stop loving this! Furthermore, it can yield 4 Brownie fudges which can also be cut into small pieces to get more Fudge pieces.

Step-by-Step Procedure with Pictures
How to Make?
- Take a cup of Peanut. I have taken roasted peanuts and roast them again slightly to get the nice aroma. You could take raw peanuts and roast them until the skin gets separated.
- Dry roast them over a low flame.
- The easy way to peel off the skin of peanuts is to take the roasted peanuts in the towel, fold from the corners and rub them with the hands for some time.
- See, the skins are peeled off completely.
- Grind the peanuts in a mixer jar and you will get a fine powder.
- Scrape down the sides and grind it again. Now, it should start to leave the oil and show-off sticky texture.
- Again scrape down the sides and continue to grind until it forms a paste. Grinding further could make the Peanut Butter gooey. And for this recipe, I recommend thick and smooth Peanut Butter.
- Now, add a tablespoon of peanut oil to it. Peanut oil enhances the flavour profile and gives a smooth texture to the Peanut Butter.
- Add a tablespoon of Honey. Honey is the taste enhancer and it gives a perfect finish to the peanut butter.
- Now, grind again and you will get a smooth thick Homemade Peanut Butter. For a cup of Peanuts, we will get half a cup of thick and smooth Peanut Butter.
Making Peanut Chocolate Fudge:
- Take any vessel preferably glass bowl and place it over a pan filled with water. Please make sure that the bottom of the glass bowl is not touching the water in the pan.
- Add 2 tablespoons of butter to the glass bowl.
- Stir the butter to melt it completely.
- Now, add in the powdered brown sugar or Jaggery powder. The need to powder the sweetener is to get the smooth texture in the fudge.
- Add in the cocoa powder. I have used unsweetened cocoa powder here. The good quality cocoa powder gives a nice flavour to the chocolate fudge.
- Add in the milk powder. Milk powder can be avoided if you want the fudge to be more chocolatey.
- Now mix well the ingredients with the butter until it forms crumbles. It just takes a minute to do.
- Add in the homemade Peanut butter now which measures about half a cup.
- Mix the Peanut butter with the cocoa mixture.
- Add 2 tablespoons of milk which binds the mixture and makes the perfect fudge.
- Add 1/8 cup of crushed peanuts which are a true delight on every bite. I use salted peanuts in the recipe. The salted peanuts then and there in the smooth melt-in-the-mouth fudge are a great delight.
- Mix well and when they bind, take it away from the heat.
- Transfer to some greased plate or wax paper, spread out the mixture and smoothen the surface.
- Let the mixture cools down and sits in the fridge for some time.
- Cut into pieces and enjoy the chocolatey, Peanutty Brownie Fudge.
