I was craving fudge on Sunday, specifically peanut butter. So I read through a few recipes and came up with this one. The original recipe was taken from All Recipes and I modified it a bit. Anyway, it’s just too damn good and easy not to share. I don’t have any photographs because my card reader seems to be broken. Forgive me for that. But it’s super easy. I promise.
What you will need
- 8 x 8 square pan
- wax paper (optional)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups powdered sugar
Fill mixing bowl of KitchenAid with powdered sugar. Set aside.
Melt butter in your saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and milk. Stir often. Let the mixture boil and after it boils let it go for 2 minutes. It will bubble up quite a bit.
After 2 minutes or so, remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla extract. Stir up until mixed well.
Pour liquid over powdered sugar.
Using the KitchenAid beater attachment, mix that until all the powdered sugar is incorporated.
Spoon into your square pan, evening out as much as possible. Cover the surface with wax paper. It’s going to be oily. That’s normal. Refrigerate. You’re done!
Oh my goodness, there are none. This recipe could not be any simpler. I had fudge within the hour.
I bet adding some peanuts or chocolate chips to this recipe would be divine. If you try it, let me know.
In other news
I’m still pregnant. Duh. Last night I had this weird sensation that I was going to go into labor. Obviously that didn’t happen. I’m not sure how much more my pelvis can take. It feels really bruised and I find walking more and more impossible. Granted, it doesn’t help I had to dig my car out of an igloo of snow yesterday. Yeah, that was fun.
But enough listening to me bitch; go make some fudge!
