Recipe: Peanut Butter Fudge

We are in the home stretch now!  I can't believe it is two weeks until Christmas.  I don't have everything done yet and my sister's family will be here next weekend.  Yikes!  I am in a time crunch so I will keep this simple. 

Peanut Butter + Fudge = Yummy Goodness!

I dressed up the fudge just a bit with a chocolate and peanut topping.  I mean, after all, it is the holidays so why not?


Peanut Butter Fudge

2 cups sugar
1 5-ounce (2/3 cup) can evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
2 cups mini-marshmellows
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped peanuts

Line a 9" baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan.  Butter the foil and set aside.  Butter the sides of a heavy saucepan.  In the saucepan, combine sugar, milk and butter.  Cook and stir over medium-high heat until mixture boils.  Reduce heat to medium and continue to boil at a moderate, steady rate for 12 minutes, stirring frequently.  Remove saucepan from heat.  Add peanut butter, marshmellows and vanilla; stirring until mixture is combined.  Pour and spread evenly into the prepared pan.  Let stand until fudge is firm, about 2 hours.  Use foil to lift fudge out of pan.  Place chocolate chips in microwave for 1 minute and stir.  Microwave about 1 minute more or until melted; stirring after every 15 seconds.  Sprinkle fudge with chopped peanuts and drizzle chocolate over peanuts and fudge.
