Peanut Butter Fudge

An easy fudge to make
with only 5 ingredients.


1 cup peanut butter
(I used crunchy peanut butter)
1 cup unsalted butter,
cut into pieces
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
4 cups icing sugar,
(confectioners sugar)
1/4 tsp salt 


Line a 8x8 pan with
parchment paper or 
greased aluminum foil.

Place the peanut butter, butter and
 salt in a large microwaveable bowl
 and microwave for one 
to two minutes on high,
stir and continue to microwave
 if needed. until the ingredients 
are completely melted. 

(you can also melt the ingredients
 in a heatproof bowl placed over
 a saucepan of simmering water).

Then using a wooden spoon, 
stir in the vanilla extract and 
icing sugar (confectioners sugar),
into the butter mixture.

Spread the fudge into the prepared 
 pan, smoothing the top with an 
offset spatula or the back of a spoon.
I added some chocolate chips.

Cover and place in the 
refrigerator until firm (at least 2 hrs.)

Cut into 1 inch pieces

Can be stored in the refrigerator 
for up to one week. 
Fudge freezes well also.

I made some for a Valentine gift this yr.
