I’ve been working on a project this week that required me to make one of my favorite comfort foods. I thought about all of them, and settled on chocolate peanut butter fudge. Fudge is one of my favorite sweets, and it’s rich, creamy, melt in your mouth texture screams comfort. This is a quick and easy recipe that you can throw together in a few minutes time.
1/4 c. margarine
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. milk
1/3 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. chocolate chips, melted
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 ¾ c. powdered sugar
In a saucepan, melt margarine.
Add brown sugar and milk.
Bring to a boil, continue to boil for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat, add melted chocolate, peanut butter, and vanilla to the boiled mixture.. Stir thoroughly.
Add powdered sugar, and beat with electric mixer until smooth.
Pour into an 8”x8” baking pan – I used a 6” round. Cool completely before cutting.
Peanut butter fudge, or chocolate peanut butter fudge happens to be my favorite flavor. What’s yours? Have you purchased fudge in a candy shop? It’s outrageously priced and I’m not sure why, the ingredients are as simple as making the fudge.
