Peanut Butter Fudge

Another Pinterest find courtesy of Brown-eyed Baker. This was my first experience with fudge, and it turned out really well.

  • 1 1⁄4 cups (10 oz) unsalted butter
  • 1 1⁄4 cups smooth peanut butter
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 1⁄2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • pinch of salt

Butter an 8-inch non-stick baking dish (or line with buttered parchment paper) and set aside. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat butter and peanut butter until the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Add the salt and vanilla extract, then stir in the powdered sugar until smooth and no lumps remain. Pour the fudge mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Press a piece of wax paper directly on the fudge and refrigerate until set, at least 1 hour. Cut into squares and serve. Can be stored frozen or in an airtight container.
