So as I am snowed in, and that usually makes me want to bake. (well I've been in a baking mood lately anyway). I decided to make peanut butter fudge last night. I found a recipe by Alton Brown on the food network website. It was quick, easy, and tasty.
8 oz. unsalted butter
1 cup peanut butter
1lb confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Grease a glass pan 8X8, or whatever size you are wanting to use depending on how thick you like your fudge
combine the butter and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for two minutes, and stir.
microwave it again for two more minutes
When it is bubbling add the confectioners sugar and vanilla.
Stir until it the sugar is combined, and the mixture looses its sheen and becomes stiff and hard to stir.
Pour the mixture into the greased pan, and smooth it out.
Cover with parchment paper or aluminum foil and refrigerate for two hours.
After it has hardened slice, and enjoy!
