Peanut butter fudge: yields over two pounds of mouth watering fudge.

You will need a 9×13 pan greased

Peanut butter- one cup

Confectioners sugar- one and a half pounds

Butter or margarine- one half cup

Cream, half and half, evaporated milk, or milk- one half cup

Vanilla extract- one and one half teaspoon

Milk chocolate- twelve ounce bag

In large saucepan melt butter, cream or milk, and peanut butter. Mix until creamy. Bring to a soft boil and turn on very low heat. Add confectioners sugar, and blend it into peanut butter mixture. Beat until all sugar is folded in.

There will be white sugar lumps at this point. Take fudge mix out of saucepan and away from the heat and put in mixing bowl. Beat mixture gently to break down white lumps. Mix until white lumps disappear or lessen.

Fill 9x 13 pan with peanut butter fudge filling. Spread hot filling to pans edges. Pour bag of milk chocolate over hot fudge, spread evenly. Let stand for five minutes as hot fudge will naturally melt the milk chocolate. Use frosting spreader or butter knife to create a decoration on top of fudge.

Refrigerate for one hour to harden chocolate. May be served cold, room temperature, or even tastes great heated up for twenty seconds ion the microwave for a warm gooey and unforgettable treat!

This creamy peanut butter fudge is wow! So easy to prepare and you most likely have ingredients on hand. A great tasting peanut butter fudge on it’s own, but try adding some milk chocolate and you will get yourself a big Reese’s peanut butter cup.
