Peanut Butter Fudge
1 cup smooth peanut butter ( I used natural peanut butter with no sugar)
1 cup unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 pound powdered sugar
Line the bottom and sides of an 8x8x2 inch pan with aluminum foil or wax paper.
Place the peanut butter, butter, and salt in a large microwavable bowl and cook in the microwave for two minutes on high. Stir and continue to microwave (if needed) until the ingredients are completely melted. Stir in the vanilla and powdered sugar. Spread the fudge into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with an offset spatula or spoon. Cover and place in the refrigerator until cool.
Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Notes: I may try chunky peanut butter next time and a little less powdered sugar. But I think by using the natural peanut butter that adds to the peanut flavor and keeps it from being too sweet.
I think I got this recipe from joyofbaking.com.
