Peanut Butter Fudge
Today our boys and I made Peanut Butter Fudge for their teachers. They’re so proud when they make their own Christmas gifts.
And I get it. That’s why I like cooking. It sort of brings you out of that fog of, What did I do today? (I mean, I dressed our kids, but the next time I looked up, their bellies were bare.) A success in the kitchen makes me swell with pride, like, damn, not only did I do something today, but I did it well.
That’s hot stuff when you’re home with three kids.
If only it didn’t result in another tangible thing: dishes.
Peanut butter fudge (made without corn syrup), adapted from The Food Network:
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened chocolate
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
First, we microwaved the peanut butter and butter for two minutes, stirred it, and then microwaved it for another two.
We poured it into a mixing bowl and stirred in the powdered sugar, vanilla and chocolate, until it thickened.
We lined an 8 by 8 pan with wax paper. Then, we poured our mixture in, flattening it with our fingers.
We put another piece of wax paper on top, and refrigerated until it hardened. Then we cut it into squares, and Mama ate a few.
