Easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge

Remember this post when I made five minute fudge?  Well I made two smallish pans of it.  My family ate one pan as just plain, chocolate fudge but I had plans for the other fudge! :-)  I wanted to make a peanut butter fudge to go with it…because honestly, I love peanut butter and chocolate together almost as much as I love sandwiches!
So I started with putting 1 1/2 cup of powdered sugar in a bowl and set that aside.
Then I took 1/4 cup of butter and melted it in pan.
Once the butter was melted, I added 1 1/8 cup of brown sugar (light or dark is fine)

Then add 1/4 cup of milk and bring it to a slow boil for a couple of minutes.

Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup of peanut butter (I used creamy but next time might try some crunchy for texture), and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.

Stir those in until well mixed and creamy.

Take your peanut butter mixture and pour it over the powdered sugar in the bowl.

Blend those together until smooth.  The mixture will be more like a cookie dough texture.

Spoon on top of the already set chocolate fudge.  I used a piece of wax paper to press the peanut butter fudge into place and make it even.

Cover the fudge and put in the fridge for about an hour for the peanut butter fudge to set.

See!  A great layer of chocolate and peanut butter fudge!

I usually wait for the fudge to come up to room temperature a little before I slice it.  Also this is VERY rich…so I suggest small, bite size piece. :-)  Enjoy!!
