Fudge

ust a quick personal note...the friend that I have mentioned was pregnant found out today that she miscarried. I cannot imagine what that must be like. Please keep her and her husband in your prayers. Now, on to another Christmas recipe. This is one that I got from Cate. Just as the title says, it is very easy peanut butter fudge. At first I was concerned that it was just going to taste sweet, which it does; however, it is definitely peanut butter fudge. Thanks, Cate! Try it out for yourself.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge
1/2 cup butter
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup peanut butter (I admit, I did swirl about 1/4 cup more in after everything was mixed in)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

In medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk. Bring mixture to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over confectioners sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth; pour into an 8x8 inch dish lined with tinfoil and buttered. Chill until firm and cut into squares. Yield: a lot!

Peabody - Your tongue would love to taste it, too! Sad for my friend, too. I can't imagine celebrating Christmas while I had just lost my baby.

Veggiegirl - I hope she finds it as well. Thanks. The fudge is really easy to make...and yummy, too.
