Then I found this recipe. I can't take credit for it, but man do I wish I could. We both love peanut butter, so peanut butter fudge is right up our alley. And considering it only uses four ingredients and can be put together in about 5 minutes total. All this, and it is made in the microwave. No double boiler, no candy thermometers, and no dropping hot syrup into water looking for the perfect consistency. Just microwave, stir, pour into pan, and refrigerate. It is literally foolproof. I like to use creamy peanut butter, but crunchy works as well.
A quick tip about measuring peanut butter. If you spray the measuring cup with non-stick cooking spray, you can remove the peanut butter from the measuring cup much easier.
