Easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge {recipe}

How could I let the holidays go by without posting at least a few things??? Especially when I have some tasty treats to share. See, my husband’s family always makes lots and lots of yummy treats for the holidays. When I married him, I happily adopted that tradition. We love to make some of his family favorites, as well as a few recipes of our own. This one is from our own kitchen, from a cookbook I have called 101 Things to do with a Potato. Yes, that is where I found the recipe for our super duper easy fudge. I sometimes call it my secret ingredient fudge.

Ingredients:

1 package (12 oz) milk chocolate chips
2 Tbs milk
1 c chunky (I actually use creamy) peanut butter
1/2 c warm plain mashed potatoes (this is about 1 small potato)
1 tsp vanilla
4 c powdered sugar
1/4 c chopped peanuts (optional)

Instructions:

In a nonstick saucepan, melt chocolate chips with milk over low heat, stirring constantly. Once completely melted, remove from heat and immediately stir in peanut butter, potatoes, and vanilla until smooth (the smoother you mash your potatoes the smoother your mixture will be). Stir in powdered sugar, one cup at a time.

Press fudge into a 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 pan. The recipe says to grease the pan but I would recommend using wax paper instead. The oil tends to get into the fudge while you’re pressing the fudge down, making it really greasy. Sprinkle with peanuts if desired. Cover and chill 2-3 hours. Cut and serve.
