I used a 8x6x2 inch Pyrex dish


So I've been busy lately and yeah I noticed I haven't quite kept this blog up at all. I'm sorry but life and more life and changes and such. So....

I have been pinning alot of peanut butter recipes for the new hubby and so far I can say I have tried some of them and YES...you guessed it Pin Wins for me. Yeahhhh. So hubby is a peanut butter fanatic. I have a whole board on pinterest called peanut lover recipes. You can check it out here. There's not many recipes but as find or he sees things that he would like me to try I pin it there and make it later in the adventures of bored baking.

I promised hubby I would make him some peanut butter fudge. I'm daring, I love trying new things, never made fudge before...OMG WTF was thinking? I mean fudge, FUDGE there are tons of ways to make this stuff and will it come out right? Yeah candy and me making it at home has always been a hit or miss thing. But you know what Pinterest for the win again! 

So I found this simple 4 ingredient recipe on Pinterest called Easy Peanut Butter Fudge. And you know what; it was just that simple and easy. Well ok maybe not so easy when your having to mix peanut butter and melted sugar mix combo but hey simple enough. I did change it up a bit by adding 1/2 cup brown sugar it to for a more cookie like taste. Apparently it worked. I also used sugar free natural peanut butter cos there is enough sugar in fudge. 

Ok so here's the recipe from isavea2z.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups of sugar (I did 1 1/2 C. regular sugar and 1/2 C. brown sugar)
  • ½ cup of milk ( I used 2%)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup of creamy peanut butter (I used sugar free natural peanut butter)

Instructions
  1. Add the sugar and milk to a medium saucepan, mix well and bring to a boil.
  2. Continue to boil for about 2½ minutes and stir constantly.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and peanut butter.
  4. Pour fudge into a glass container covered with butter or parchment paper and allow it to set and harden for at least one hour.
  5. Using a sharp knife like paring or utility knife (yes that is an actual name for kitchen knife) to cut your fudge once harden and set.

Note: I added the vanilla to the sugar and milk step. I find it easier when I do that. You will WANT to either butter or use parchment paper to remove the fudge once set. This is some thick stuff.

I hope you enjoy the recipe and don't forget to post pictures on her site to show how awesome you did at making fudge!
