Peanut Butter Fudge - No Bake
I love peanut butter fudge because it is infinitely easier than chocolate fudge and, well, it’s peanut butter fudge and... I'm chocolate challenged. Besides, what’s not to love? No candy thermometers or intensive stirring required. All you need is butter, peanut butter, a pinch of salt, vanilla, powdered sugar and about 10 minutes. Easy peasy! Which is perfect for this hectic time of year, and any time of year, right?
