Vegan PB&J Fudge

Vegan PB&J Fudge

PB&J is a delish treat whether you are a kid or an adult. We have grown up with it and enjoy to indulge from time to time. This also is the same for fudge, we all have had it and we all love to treat ourselves with some every now and then. What if you combined the two? Yes it is a wicked idea and I'm just the lady to try, what a comfort. This recipe combines those two comfort foods and makes your mouth water at the same time. A great and easy recipe for anyone looking for a quick dessert. A perfect recipe to have kids help with and a perfect gift for anyone you love. You can't go wrong when you make it and no one will be able to resist, vegan or not. Serve in small squares and keep in the fridge for best results. Just don't forget PB&J's perfect partner...vegan milk! Enjoy!
