I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I wrote this post on Thanksgiving, and set it up to post automatically. I have a feeling I’ll be up extra early to catch some of the Black Friday deals along with herds of crazed shoppers. I’m not proud of it, but hey, I need a griddle and a slow cooker for $13.00.
I’ve made fudge recipes before, that ended up crystallized and gritty with un-dissolved sugar. And granted, these sound like peanut butter flavored sugar cubes, but my batch came out creamy with a rich, peanut butter flavor.
Even if you don’t have time to make them for this holiday, they would be perfect for Christmas and New Years. Simple and tasty is the only way to go.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 1/4 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
Place butter into a medium saucepan and melt it over medium heat.
Add brown sugar and milk, stirring.
Boil for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat.
Mix in peanut butter and vanilla.
Place confectioners' sugar into a large mixing bowl.
Pour hot peanut butter mixture over confectioners’ sugar and beat until smooth.
Pour fudge into an 8 by 8 inch pan.
Chill until firm, about 1 hour.
Cut into 1-inch squares.
