The Ingredients You Need.

It melts so quickly and easily that if you have it missed in, you can easily bite through the fudge as soon as it comes out of the freezer. You can certainly skip it but then your "fudge" will need to defrost for a bit before being enjoyed.
Peanut butter. The main ingredient doing all of the heavy lifting as far as flavor goes. Use any nut or seed butter you'd like if you are allergic. It is all tasty.
Maple Syrup. This is the sweeter for this peanut butter freezer fudge.
