Peanut Butter Fudge



For the last three days all you heard about was this big storm that we were suppose to get. The storm was coming on a Sunday and I was really looking forward to being snowed in for a day. Staying home with the family, doing some baking, watching some movies, just enjoy not being able to go anywhere. But what did we get, basically nothing. The sun even came out half way through the day.


Oh well...what are you going to do. I did make some peanut butter fudge though. This is the easiest peanut butter fudge there is to make. It is full proof.


Peanut Butter Fudge

1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter (I use Jif)
3/4 cup butter
4 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 Tbsp. milk

Coat a 8-9 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the peanut butter and butter. Microwave on 80% power for 1 to 2 minutes

Remove from the microwave and add the remaining ingredients; mix well and press into the greased pan. Microwave at 80% power for an additional 1 minute.
Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Cut and enjoy.

Hi Lea. Hope you see this email. I see your recipe was posted in 2007. I came across your fudge recipe and made it. It is WONDERFUL! Everyone should try this. I gave some of the fudge to my friend and she LOVED IT and wanted the recipe. I looked at your profile and was surprised the similarities with us. You see, I was just recently diagnosed with celiac disease. Also I was a secretary in Arizona State government for many years - and I love classic and country rock. My husband is from New York. So thought I would just drop you this note to say hello. And THANKS for the great recipe! If you are on facebook feel free to hook up with me. My name is Joy Hafford.
