Season of Indulgence


This week was my first attempt in 3+ months of actually being in the kitchen and baking. Well, is making fudge really considered "baking"?

Either way, I did make something for my kids for the Christmas season. Here's some easy peanut butter fudge--it takes, seriously, 15 minutes. And by the way, don't look too closely to the ingredient statement. Besides, isn't it Christmas--the season of indulgence?

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter (I used chunky PB for some texture)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over confectioners' sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth; pour into an 8x8 inch dish. Chill until firm and cut into squares.
