I will substitute the peanut butter with all natural almond butter and the walnuts with slivered almonds. It will be a fudge everyone can eat, including our grandson-in-law who has a sweet tooth and has to be vegetarian and vegan.

I do a similar recipe that swirls chocolate into the peanut butter to make a bark type candy. For those who ask what candy coating is, it's the small disks you buy to make candy from. Wilton makes "Candy Melts", and there are similar brands out there. They are easy to melt and use - much easier than marshmallow creme, in my opinion.

I have made this for years, but can no longer find "white" candy coating, only vanilla. The vanilla just didn't seem the same, or was it just my imagination? Are white and vanilla the same?

At first I wasn't sold on making this recipe. Seemed too easy and wasn't sure how it would turn out. I had to use the chocolate almond bark because I didn't have white and I added a cup of party peanuts. My kids and husband thinks it taste like a Hershey's Mr. Goodbar. It was a huge hit with my family!

I have made this peanut butter fudge for a long. I get many requests for it all the time. It is so good. The easiest ever to make.

Yes, white candy coating is also called Almond Bark. Easy to find during the holidays. The rest of the year you can find Wilton brand little white chocolate disks that you melt at stores that carry confection supplies like Michaels or Party City. Instead of walnuts I use either unsalted dry roasted peanuts or unsalted cocktail peanuts. This is the simplest fudge you will ever make. Completely no-fail and everyone loves it. If you have small children, you could omit the nuts altogether.
