appetite-killing peanut butter fudge
That's appetite-killing in a good way, like, it'll make you full, not to be confused with appetite-killing because it's nauseating. Well, I guess it could be if you ate the whole batch at once, but it's tasty enough to tempt you to do just that.
What you will need:
- One bag of peanut butter chips. I don't know how big the bags are, since I just took out the trash, but, you know, standard size. They sell them in the baking aisle where all the chocolate chips and cake mixes are.
- 2 and 1/4ths cups of sugar. I used regular sugar the first time, which gave the end product kind of a grainy, crunchy consistency. It was kind of fun that way. But if you don't like flavor crystals, you can use confectioner's sugar.
- One 7oz jar of marshmallow fluff. They didn't have fluff at my supermarket, so I just used 3/4ths of a bag of marshmallows, and it worked just fine.
- 3/4ths a cup of evaporated milk.
- 1/4th a cup of butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
What to do:
OK, this is so easy, you will plotz. Melt the butter and marshmallows in a pot. Then add the sugar and milk and mix it up. Then add the peanut butter chips and mix it up until it's all melty and even throughout. Finally, add the vanilla and mix it up. It will be deicious goo by this point. Pour the goo into a pan and let it cool. Then cut it into squares. Voila.
The neat thing about this fudge is that, between the butter and the peanut butter chips, the whole mess is so greasy that you don't even need to grease the pan beforehand. Well, I guess that's either neat, or gross. I say neat.
Also, I imagine that you can make regular fudge with this recipe too (that is to say, chocolate fudge), by just substituting what kind of chips you use. Oh, and when I ws at the store, I saw that they had white chocolate chips, so how's that for a future experiment? Maybe I'll try that sometime soon, after I've recovered from my latest culinary debacle.
