2 Ingredient Fudge Ingredients:
Frosting– A rich and creamy frosting style works best for this recipe. The Cream Cheese frostings and the whipped frostings will not work on this. The Rainbow Chip and Coconut Pecan frosting will not turn out well in this recipe either.
Creamy Peanut Butter– Any brand of creamy peanut butter works amazingly in this recipe; I would avoid ones with honey or jelly. Chunky peanut butter can be used instead of a smooth fudge, but it will affect the consistency.
How to make fudge with frosting:
Scoop all the frosting and peanut butter into a microwave-safe container.
