Disappearing Peanut Butter Fudge

This is absoloutely delicious and incredibly easy to make. It's a variation of a recipie that I saw Alton Brown make on his show Good Eats (see links). Technically, it's not really fudge but it sure tastes great!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

VARIATION:

Chunky peanut butter can be used instead of creamy peanut butter

You can use any combination of white, dark, and milk chocolate chips, nuts, or whatever with the topping

Instead of vanilla, you can add some pure maple syrup

TOOLS:

Microwave-safe bowl, Mixing spoon, and an 8"x8" Flat bar pan dish or serving dish.

DIRECTIONS:

Place peanut butter and butter in a microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes and mix the contents--should be close to a liquid. Microwave some more until you have a nice liquid. Add the teaspoon of vanilla and mix the contents of the bowl.

Slowly combine the liquid with the powdered sugar.

Once combined, spoon the mix into your bar pan or serving dish. Smooth the mix evenly.

Once smoothed in the dish, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and gently press them down into the fudge mixture.

Refridgerate for 1 hour and serve. If the fudge sits out for too long, it can soften. Simply refriderate again.
