Peanut Butter Fudge

I want to start this post out by saying, "I'm so sorry, Christine, but I'm going to swipe the recipe you gave me and post it before you have a chance to do so yourself."  There...I feel a little better.

Our church had a bake sale recently to raise money for devotional books for the children.  It was really way too hot to turn the oven on, so I whipped up a batch of this amazing fudge, cut it into squares, wrapped them in wax paper packages, and decorated it with a pretty little ribbon.  They were sold out before I even had a chance to make it to the church door (that always makes you feel good!).

Here is my slightly adapted recipe, which I got from our contributor Christine, who got it from Alton Brown.  Try it's amazingly easy and super delicious.

Peanut Butter Fudge

1 cup butter or regular stick margarine
1 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 to 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Microwave butter and peanut butter 2 minutes.  Stir and microwave 2 minutes more.  Add vanilla and sugar.  Stir to combine.  Pour into a buttered 8 x 8" pan lined with waxed paper.  Place a second piece over top and smooth it out.  Refrigerate until firm.  Store up to 1 week.

  1. What are good friends for, if we can't steal each others recipes??

    This is my favorite fudge.

  2. I was drooling as soon as I read the title! My cousin used to make this all the was his "trademark" dessert and highly desired by all. You are right about it being super easy to make! I plan on trying it RIGHT NOW!!!
