Peanut Butter Fudge

I wanted to share a favorite recipe that my husband found on the Food Network in 2003 (credits below). It has become a family favorite since the very first time we made it over 5 years ago.

This "Peanut Butter Fudge" is "melt in your mouth good"! We make it at Christmas each year and often times give a plate of it as gifts to our neighbors. This candy is sinfully delicious and extremely easy to make!... so easy to make, it's almost embarrassing.
Hope you enjoy it!

Peanut Butter Fudge

1 cup butter, plus more for greasing pan
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pound powdered sugar

Microwave butter and peanut butter for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. Add vanilla and powdered sugar to peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. Pour into a buttered 8 by 8-inch pan lined with waxed paper. Place a second piece of waxed paper on the surface of the fudge and refrigerate until cool (at least 1 hour). Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container for up to a week.
