Now I will be the first to admit this is not the creamy fudge everyone is used to, but when I married my husband he said his favorite dessert was oatmeal fudge. So I decided to make it for him, and I have made it for him again, and again, and again for the last 15 years, and it is still one of his favorite desserts.
When I make Oatmeal Fudge for him I drop it cookie like on parchment paper, however, it can be spread into a one sheet and cut into squares like traditional fudge. I hope you enjoy the recipe and it can become a family favorite.
As I state in all of my recipes – gather your ingredients first, it makes things so much easier.
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
2/3 cup peanut butter
3 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
3 Tbsp cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
1.) Melt your butter, combine in sugar and milk and bring to a boil. Boil for one minute and then remove from the heat.
2.) Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until well mixed together.
3.) Drop by spoonfuls on parchment paper or spread out in a single layer. However, if you want to do something special you can spray a silicon cookie mold with non-stick spray and fill with the oatmeal fudge. Put cookie sheet or molds into refrigerator to set.
Enjoy!! And remember… the calories don’t count until AFTER Christmas~!
