Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

Time for another installment of Christmas Week!  Have you checked out the rest of the week, and all the great giveaways going on?  Don’t miss my Frosted Sugar Cookies (Magimix giveaway), Pomegranate Margaritas (Le Creuset giveaway), and Homemade Caramels (Swissmar Giveaway).  Stay tuned for tomorrow; more cookies and a giveaway worth over $250!  But in the mean time, I have chocolate and peanut butter.  Quite possibly the worlds best flavor combination.

Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

My all time favorite fudge is something we have been making since I was a kid.  But I am always up to try something new.  So this year, I decided to go the peanut butter route.  I saw this recipe over at Crazy for Crust months ago, and knew I just had to make it.  It is super easy, no thermometer, or boiling sugar….just melt and go.  Plus add in peanut butter cups, because life is just better with them.

Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

Seriously, this peanut butter cup fudge could not get any easier.  I think it took about 10 minutes, and it was cooling and just waiting for me to slice into it.  That has to be the hardest part; waiting for it to harden.   When Dorothy made the fudge she topped with with peanuts.  Great idea, but I am not a fan of nuts with my desserts.  I know that is strange, but I just don’t like it.  So I decided why not just add more peanut butter cups.  You can decide which way you like better :)  As for the giveaway, I am jealous!!  The new Pioneer Woman cookbook is on my Christmas list this year.  And I used Freund products when I made my spice rack this year.  I have other projects on my to do list that they would be perfect for (organizing my pantry).
