So I found this SUPER EASY peanut butter fudge recipe and since Dexter has been asking me to make fudge I decided to give it a try. I got the recipe on Pinterest of course! but I chose to use just the peanut butter portion. The original recipe calls for making a chocolate layer on the bottom but it was 10:30 at night and I was looking for easy peasy.
I started by getting out all the ingredients which surprisingly is just 5 things! Butter, Peanut Butter, Vanilla, Powdered Sugar, and Mini Choc Chips. Then I sat the Ipad on a stand and got to work with
this recipe from culinary concoctions
Peanut Butter Layer
8 ounces unsalted butter, plus more for greasing pan
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound powdered sugar
chocolate chips and peanut butter chips to sprinkle on top about a 1/2 cup each
Combine the butter and peanut butter in a 4-quart microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
Microwave for 2 minutes on high.
Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. (Use caution when removing this mixture from the microwave, it will be very hot.)
Add the vanilla and powdered sugar to the peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon.
The mixture will become hard to stir and lose its sheen.
Pour the peanut butter layer on top of the chocolate layer. Sprinkle chocolate and peanut butter chips and press down to help them stick to fudge.
Refrigerate until cool, about 2 hours.
Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
