Have you ever met someone who goes above and beyond what’s necessary or expected?

I have a very special friend who would do anything to help you in a time of need.  

So much so, that she gave a beautiful table, that she loved and recently hand painted with beautiful flowers, along with some other pieces of furniture, to a woman she didn’t know who had a house fire and lost everything.

Her kindness doesn’t stop there, though.

She loves to bless her friends and others with gifts she creates.

The other day she did something special for one of the residents of the retirement center where she works who was going to be celebrating her birthday.

She created a beautiful heart ornament, scanned and enlarged and framed a photo of the resident’s dog which she missed, and made the woman’s favorite sweet treat.

Most of us don’t do so much for our best friends.


What was that favorite sweet treat?

Peanut Butter Fudge.


Yummy Peanut Butter Fudge Recipes :: AnExtraordinaryDay.net


My sweet friend couldn’t find her mom’s wonderful peanut butter fudge recipe, so she went online and scoured the recipes until she saw two that seemed like good possibilities…..

Peanut Butter Fudge


Peanut Butter Fudge Recipes :: Peanut Butter Fudge :: AnExtraordinaryDay.net


and Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge.


Peanut Butter Fudge Recipes :: Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge :: AnExtraordinaryDay.net


Both recipes were easy to make.  However, if you elect to make the Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge, you either need a strong arm or a Kitchen Aid.  It’s just good to be prepared. 

Now as the official Peanut Butter Fudge Taste Tester and photographer…
here’s my evaluation of the two recipes.

The Peanut Butter Fudge should be called creamy PB fudge.   It really is the creamiest I have ever had.  I liked it because it wasn’t sicky sweet like a lot of PB fudges can be.  The texture was wonderful too.

The Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge seemed more like a fudge you would get at a fudge shop, both in flavor and texture.  Immediately I liked that one best as did my husband who has a real sweet tooth.  We also noted that the brown sugar…my friend used dark brown sugar…gave the fudge a slight hint of something reminiscent of maple sugar.

As good as these two fudges are….and they really are good or I wouldn’t be sharing them with you…my favorite way to enjoy peanut butter is on a hot toasted English muffin.  Yes, I love how the peanut butter melts into those little holes in the muffin and starts running down my fingers as I attempt to sink my teeth into its warm gooey goodness.

What’s your favorite way to enjoy peanut butter?

Which do you prefer….chocolate fudge or peanut butter fudge?


If you’d enjoy another “sweet treat,” then whip up a loaf of my Best Banana Bread and enjoy it like this.

    • Diane says

      Let me know how you and your husband like it!!
      I do have a wonderful friend!!

  2. Jean says

    My oldest son loves peanut butter fudge so I’ll be trying these recipes soon although personally, I’m a bit more of a chocolate fudge person.

    • Diane says

      Jean…I’m with you. Let me know what you think of the recipes….
      Best wishes for an Extraordinarily organized day! 😉

  3. Annpauley says

    Dear Diane,
    What a nice story about your friend. Kindness and mercy is what we are called to, I believe, given the circumstances God places us. It’s reassuring to know people still respond to God’s call !
    I also loved the red and white tablescape !
    Take care,
    Ann p.

    • Diane says

      Awww…thanks Ann!
      We are…just not all of us listen to those whispers to love and bless.

      Hope your week is filled with extraordinary God moments!

  4. Janie Crane says

    Dear Diane, Thanks for the sweet story and the recipes. I may be making P-NUT BUTTER FUDGE…your fault! I may or may not give some of it away. hehe…actually, my Bible Study Friends will love it!!! en JOY… Janie

    • Diane says

      Janie….I think your friends will love it!!!! 🙂 Let me know.

  5. Gwen says

    I loved the photos of the fudge!! I’m a chocolate fudge maker but my daughter makes tasty peanut butter fudge so I eat her PB fudge for I’m too lazy to stir up my own chocolate variety!!

    • Diane says

      You just made me chuckle, Gwen. I’m not sure about the lazy part…maybe wise!!!
      Prayed for you and Curt today….trusting with you for God’s hand of healing.

  6. Oh, this looks good! I’d probably opt for the easiest PB fudge one. I like the thought of it tasting like maple sugar. Yum!! Thanks for sharing the recipes! Hope you have a great weekend!

    • Diane says

      Lisa…I think using the DARK brown sugar was probably what gave it that rich flavor. Let me know if you try it!!
      Hope your weekend is Extraordinary!!

  7. That looks so very delicious! Peanut Butter fudge is a personal favorite but the problem is I will have a hard time not eating the entire pan. The pics are beautiful!

    • Diane says

      Oh Heather….it is hard to stop!!! LOL!! It’s best to make it and take it so that you can enjoy a few pieces and no more!! 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by and for your a warm remarks!
      Hope your weekend is Extraordinary!!

  8. This looks so good–pinning this right now! I might just have to make a batch for myself and hide it from the kids 🙂

    • Diane says

      Haha!! Good luck with that, Carrie! I’m pretty sure all kids have special sensory receptors for things like fudge. 😉
      Let me know if you try it!

  9. Shirlene Weber says

    I have tried the first recipe just a week ago and it is awesome.
    Will have to remember the second one for my next try.

  16. I LOVE Peanut Butter Fudge! Thanks for the recipes. I hopped over from the Bouquet of Talent Linky

    • Diane says

      Thanks Cindy! Since you’re PB lover, I’m pretty sure, you’ll enjoy these. Yesterday we added a dark chocolate topping to the creamy fudge (1st recipe) and it was fantastic.

      Have an Extraordinary week!

  17. Lulu says

    You would think that as much as I like peanut butter I would have made peanut butter fudge. Not so though I do like it and just may have to try your recipe.

  18. This fudge looks and sounds delicious. I’ve never tried peanut butter flavour before and I’m thinking I definitely should. Visiting from Skip the Housework. I’m also a co-host for Sweet and Savoury Sunday and would love for you to link up some of recipes with us.

  19. Mmmm…those look so good! Might have to make some next time we are looking for a sweet treat.

  20. Kim says

    Diane, such a friend is rare indeed. God has a special place prepared for her in heaven, I’m sure! In reference to the peanut butter fudge, I’ve decided to go with you and your husband’s favorite. I grew up eating PB fudge my brother made (scary, I know!), but I don’t know what recipe he used. I’ve really been hungry for some, though. Thanks for your post and recipes – even a choice of recipes. 🙂 Yours looks beautiful, too.

  21. HI Diane- Thanks for linking this up! This will be a feature this Thursday evening when Friday Favorites goes live. I pinned it, but I am unable to add the photo to the lineup. laura

    • Diane says

      Laura….whenever I have a problem like that…here’s what I do. Once the photo has been pinned…simply save the big pinned image just like you would any other. Hope that helps. 🙂
      Thank you sooo much!!!

  22. vinma says

    I am a chocolate fan all the way.. so I have to say chocolate fudge. But that being said, I can see myself liking peanut butter fudge too 🙂 Great pictures! Stopping by from SITS crafts link up 🙂 Glad to meet you!

    • Diane says

      Shhh….don’t tell…but I truly am nuts about chocolate. But, when a friend, who is a super duper cook makes you two kinds of PB fudge…well…you just have to have some….and for a chocolate purest….it was really good. It was even better when she made some a few days later with chocolate on top. YUM!!
      Thanks for popping over to say…Hi!!

  23. My husband and I both LOVE peanut butter. I will have to try your recipe for a special treat. Pinned it.

    • Diane says

      Let me know when you make it. Would love to hear what you think!

  24. I definitley have to make this, it is hubby’s favorite. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  25. What a beautiful friend you have! You are a lucky lady. I used to make fudge with my mom – many…years ago. I haven’t made it in more than a decade. Maybe I need to make some.
    Patty at Home and Lifestyle Design

    • Diane says

      Patty…A decade is too long to go without freshly made fudge. Yum! What a blessed gal you are to have the memory of making it with your mom. So sweet!!
      Hope your week is off to an Extraordinary start!

  26. Mel says

    Oh geeze….I can have fudge!! Aughhh!!! LOL. Now we’ll have to make some.
    We need to clone that friend of yours….

  27. These look SOOO yummy!!! I’m a sucker for peanut butter and chocolate. Stopping by from SITS

    • Diane says

      It is!! Hope you treat yourself to some soon, Meredith!
      Thanks for stopping by! [hugs]

  29. Tirabaralla says

    Thank you for sharing!

    • Diane says

  31. Beth says

    Delicious! I love peanut butter fudge. Thanks for sharing.

  32. Looks delicious! Thanx for sharing at THT!

  33. Both of those fudges (is that a word?) look amazing! I cannot eat fudge because of the dairy, but they have me drooling. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Best of the Weekend. Pinned to our party board. 🙂

    • Diane says

      I make up words all the time Lisa…so ‘fudges’ it will be!!! 😉
      Awwww…I am so bummed about the dairy….hmmmm….I wonder if there is a fudge made with coconut oil….that would be amazing…delicious and just for you. Check Deliciously Organic – the blog and see if she has a recipe for one. Just as I suggested coconut oil, I thought maybe I had seen a recipe come across my screen sometime. It’s worth a check….she has great recipes.
