I had just finished making the dog cookies above and thought “what will I do with the rest of this peanut butter?” (since I really only like chunky in sandwiches etc…). I remembered seeing Alton Brown make this fudge on his show and how easy it was. So, I looked up the recipe and in less than 10 minutes it was done!
It’s really sweet – a little goes a long way, but it is quite tasty and a great quick fudge recipe.
1C. Butter, plus more for greasing pan
1C. Peanut butter
1lb. Powdered sugar
Microwave butter and peanut butter for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes.
Add vanilla and powdered sugar to peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon.
Pour into a buttered 8 by 8-inch pan lined with waxed paper.
Place a second piece of waxed paper on the surface of the fudge and refrigerate until cool.
Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container for up to a week.
Husband Rating – 3 out of 5 – “A good first attempt at fudge.”
