Peanut Butter Fudge with Chocolate Topping

I never really crave peanut butter.  I’ll eat it, but it’s not one of my favorite flavors, so I don’t use it very often.

I’ve also never made fudge before.

You’re probably wondering why I made peanut butter fudge, then.  Well, Kellen asked for it… but I had to make another batch for myself because I could not get enough of this stuff.

I dreamt about it, I couldn’t get it off my mind… it was haunting me.  I tried so hard not to make more for myself once I gave the first batch away, but, I have no will power.  Fortunately (or unfortunately?), my dad asked where all the fudge went, so I had to make it, then.  Right?  Right. 

This is super easy to make, so make it!!! You won’t regret it, and if you do, well.. send it to me.

Just a question, but would you guys like to see an occasional video on steps for making a recipe?  I was talking with a coworker today and he mentioned how he’s going to make videos for singing, and I thought “Hey, I could do that for baking."  Plus… Joy the Baker does it, and who’s cooler than her?  No one.

 *Don’t forget to melt chocolate first! Sorry for lack of a picture.
 Mix in peanut butter after boiling brown sugar, butter, and milk.
This is what it’ll look like after it’s mixed.
This is what it will look like after adding the powdered sugar.
Pour it in the pan.
Add the melted chocolate.
Finished product. Good luck waiting on it to chill.  It’s good warm, too.
