Oh Fudge.

I made my first ever batch of fudge this weekend. Peanut butter fudge to be exact. It was/is heavenly!! It was super easy and oh so yummy, so I thought I would share the recipe with you guys. It is Bakerella's recipe, so you know its going to be good! :)

Peanut Butter Fudge

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup margarine
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla
6 oz package semi sweet chocolate pieces
7 oz. jar Marshmallow Creme (I like Kraft)
1/2 cup peanut butter

1. Combine 1 1/2 cups sugar, 6 tablespoons margarine and 1/3 cup evaporated milk in a medium pot.
2. Bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly.
3. Reduce heat to medium and continue boiling for 4 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
4. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate pieces until melted.
5. Add 1 cup (1/2 jar) marshmallow creme and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until well blended.
6. Pour into greased 13 X 9 pan.

Repeat with remaining ingredients substituting peanut butter for the chocolate. Spread the peanut butter mixture over the chocolate.

Cool at room temperature and cut into squares.

Just in case you needed a visual... here is my chocolate layer of the fudge. It looks very runny, and that had me worried. But it turned out just fine. Just try to avoid having to many craters in there.

And here is the peanut butter layer on top of the chocolate layer!

Whatever you do, do NOT put them in the fridge until you have already cut them into bars. It is ridiculously difficult to cut these suckers after they have been refrigerated. I needed a pick axe or something. Sheesh.

And here they are! Next time I may use a different baking dish to try and get some thicker pieces, but I am going to have to play around with that. Overall I was very pleased with my fudge making experience. If you give this recipe a try, let me know how it turns out! :)

Never make or bring these to this house again. I have gained 5 lbs I'm sure. (I have 3 hidden in the back of the fridge!!)
