5 minute fudge
Here is a recipe for an instant sweet treat for the Christmas holiday goodie package for those you love to share homemade stuff with. I am blessed with this recipe from someone who didn't do much cooking or as far as I know, never had to clean her oven! I'm writing it by memory so you might have to tweak it a little to make it just right!

- 2 c
- peanut butter
- 1 lb
- confectioners' sugar
- 1/3 c
- 1/2 stick
- butter, cold
1In a microwaveable bowl put peanut butter,2 cups (you can use chunky if you like nuts). Add a 1# bag of confectioner's sugar (the white powder kind for you beginners is called confectioner's sugar). Mix in 1/3 cup of milk. Top with !/2 stick of butter. you can use margarine but I always use butter. You can add less & it will still work! Just experiment a little!
2Put it in the microwave for 5 minutes cover loosely with plastic wrap. It will be hot so be careful when you remove it!
3Mix the whole thing together because the butter/margarine will sit on top as it melts.
4Spread it in a medium glass pan & refrigerate it until it sets up. This doesn't take long!
5Cuts into squares or edible size pieces. Enjoy!
6I have also added chocolate chips on occasion to make chocolate peanut butter fudge. People will rave about your yummy fudge & you don't have to tell them it only took 5 minutes unless you want to! otherwise, they will think you "slaved over a hot stove" just for them!
