I’m a sucker for anything with Nutella in it. I’m also a sucker for a quick recipe. Put the 2 together and you get Nutella & Peanut Butter 2 minute fudge – and you won’t even need to turn the stove on.
It only takes 3 ingredients – how awesome is that? You need vanilla frosting (the non-whipped kind, straight off the baking aisle), peanut butter and Nutella. That’s it.
You need 1 cup of Nutella and 1 cup of peanut butter in a mixing bowl. I use a silicone spatula to mix it all up.
Next, take the lid and foil off the icing and heat it in the microwave for 1 minute. When it comes out it will be melted into a liquid.
Pour it into the bowl with the Nutella and Peanut Butter, then fold it all together well.
It will start to firm up before you get it all mixed together – just keep working it. Once it’s all mixed together, then put it into a glass 9×13 pan. Pop it into the fridge for 20-30 minutes to let it firm up. Cut it into small pieces (it’s reallllly rich) and you’re done!
See, that’s the easiest recipe in the world, huh? In case you’re wondering, you really need the peanut butter to help it all set up, it just doesn’t work well with all Nutella – but you can use all peanut butter for plain peanut butter fudge if you prefer (that’s really good, too!)

Ok, you’re killing me here! I am trying to behave myself and then I see this delicious post. Oh well, tomorrow is another day 😉
OH Gina, I have got to make this for my husband!! It contains three of his favorite things: store bought frosting, nutella, and peanut butter fudge. Do you think that the peanut butter could be reduced and the nutella increased with the same results?
Thanks! Have a wonderful day!

growing up in Italy, I call Nutella the Italian peanut butter. Children eat Nutella with bread everyday for snack or breakfast…or both! This fudge looks yummy! The best of both worlds!!
This looks amazing! I can’t wait to try!
Yum! I’m going to pin this and try it at Christmas for the girls’ teachers! (No need to make it now…I’d eat it all then feel guilty the rest of the summer!) Thanks for posting!

Mrs. Bryce says
Thank you for sharing! Have you tried this with cream cheese frosting in stead of vanilla?
Brittany Eckert says
That’s what I used! It was getting eaten before it made it into the fridge!
Mrs. Bryce says
We tried this last night and they turned out perfect. They are delicious and incredibly rich just as you said. So as good as I am trying to be with watching what I eat I couldn’t eat much at one time.
Brittany Eckert says
I just whipped this up but with cream cheese frosting instead of vanilla. And I added walnuts on top. My mom was sneaking bites before I got out into the fridge! So simple. Thanks!
Christine Robinson says
Yes! Cream Cheese!
Oh my goodness, I just made the mistake of looking at calorie counts. EEP! Definitely a special occasion dessert! 😀

This looks incredible! I’m having a huge party for my son’s 1st birthday and would love to make this! How many servings does this make? I’m going to have about 60 guests and this would be a huge hit!
Jennifer Hildebran says

I’ve made the peanut butter fudge using this recipe…and it is AWESOME! Now I wanna try….Coconut Pecan Frosting (used mostly to frost German Chocolate Cake) and peanut butter……does anyone else think this sounds AWESOME too? I’ll post how it turns out!
