Looking for something sweet to cook up this weekend? Then be sure to check out what TeamSugar member sue85 posted in the Kitchen Goddess group. She found a recipe for a melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter fudge, and served it up with grated white chocolate and strawberries. To find out how she did it, get the recipe, just read more.
Submitted by TeamSugar member sue85
2 tablespoons butter, softened
3 2/3 cups powdered sugar, sifted (I reduced to 3 cups)
1/2 cup butter (one whole stick, solid)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup walnut (optional)
This fudge is amazing and (very) sinful. It literally melts in your mouth and is really easy to make. I made one or two changes to the original, noted below. The next time I make this I would probably reduce the sugar further to 2.5 cups (it was a bit too sweet for my taste), and increase the cocoa powder and peanut butter to 3/4 cups each.
1) With two tablespoons of softened butter (not melted), use clean bare hands to grease a 9-x-13-inch glass cake pan. Make sure to completely and evenly coat the pan.
2) Place the following ingredients in an extra large microwavable glass mixing bowl in the order listed: powdered sugar, butter, cocoa, peanut butter, and milk. Do not toss or mix. (Note: It is important to ensure there are no clumps in the powdered sugar, as you do not want unsightly white clumps throughout your smooth fudge.).
3) Microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes.
4) Remove from microwave with oven mitts and add vanilla.
5) With a hand-held mixer, beat at medium-high speed until smooth.
6) If desired, stir in walnuts.
7) With a rubber spatula, turn out into previously greased cake pan and spread evenly.
8) Chill for 1 hour or until solid.
9) Cut into squares.
10) Store refrigerated for up to two weeks (that is if it makes it that long!). — ours only barely made it 2 days!
To serve, I grated some white chocolate and sprinkled it over the fudge, and served with strawberries on the side. Enjoy!
