Peanut Butter Fudge With Candy Topping

It was my dad’s birthday recently and one of his favorite desserts is peanut butter fudge. Every time we go somewhere that sells fudge we buy some for him. However, it is difficult to find unless you are in a touristy type of area (TIP: Disneyland makes THE BEST peanut butter fudge.) and we live in suburbia.  So, this year I decided to overcome my fear of making fudge and try my hand at it. I was under the false impression that making fudge involved double boilers and candy thermometers, which sound intimating and time consuming, but I wanted to do something special for him. To my pleasant surprise I found that peanut butter fudge is very, very, very easy to make. If you can push the buttons on a microwave, you can make this fudge. In fact, my three year old helped with this one!

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup of candy and/or nuts of your liking (I used M&M's, chocolate chips, and peanuts)
  2. 1 cup salted or unsalted butter
  3. 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 1 pound powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Place candy and nuts in a Ziplock bag and seal. Get creative here - add as much or as little of each as you like. You can't mess this up!
  2. Place sealed bag on a flat stable surface like your kitchen counter or cutting board and crush the candy and nuts by rolling a rolling pin over it.
  3. Place butter and peanut butter in a large microwave-safe bowl and cover loosely with plastic wrap to keep splatter to a minimum.
  4. Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  5. Stir butter and peanut butter mixture and microwave on high for another 2 minutes.
  6. ***Be careful - the mixture will be HOT!***
  7. Add vanilla and powdered sugar to mixture, but add the powdered sugar gradually, stirring to combine. By the time you add all of the powdered sugar the mixture will be very thick and will be difficult to stir. At this point, I just used my hands.
  8. Spread mixture into a 8 x8 pan lined with parchment paper. Make sure the entire pan is lined.
  9. Sprinkle candy mixture on top and gently press it into the warm fudge.
  10. Cool in the refrigerator for approximately two hours.
  11. Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an air tight container at room temperature. Fudge will keep for up to a week.
