Easy No-Fail Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge
When I say easy and no-fail I mean it!… follow the microwave cooking times and you will have perfect fudge, you must sift the confectioners sugar first or you will have small lumps in your fudge, use only butter for this not margarine or the fudge will not set properly, use a good quality peanut butter trust me you will notice the flavor difference!…
This fudge will make a perfect addition to your holiday baking tray, place each small piece into mini cupcake paper liners… chopped peanut may be omitted if desired
Yield 50 squares
1 cup butter, cut into pieces (no substitutes!)
1 cup peanut butter (use a good quality peanut butter)
2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
1/3 cup chopped peanuts (optional, can use more)
Lightly spray an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Place the butter and the peanut butter in a medium-size microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes on HIGH (I use my 8-cup Pyrex measuring cup for this).
Remove and stir with a spoon then return back and cook on HIGH for another 2 minutes.
Whisk/mix in the confectioners vigorously until combined and smooth (this might take a few minutes).
Mix in the chopped roasted nuts.
Cool to about room temperature, then chill until firm.
Cut into small squares.
