Does anyone know a recipe for creamy chocolate fudge without peanut butter?

Every year my mom makes a ton of fudge to give out to people she works with, as well as family and my siblings usually take some to their co-workers but this year my mom is working with someone who is allergic to peanut butter and the recipe my mom uses (my great-grandmother's recipe) has peanut butter in it and my mom doesn't know what to use as a substitute and I know nothing of fudge recipes since I'm the only one in my very large family who does not eat fudge.

  • Just keep the pb out of the recipe. It should be great without it

  • Is she allergic to just peanuts or all treenuts? If only peanuts, you could try using nutella. It's a chocolate hazelnut spread with a slightly softer consistency than peanut butter
