This should be called crazy easy idiot proof candy.

Just an idea.

fudge (2 of 3)It’s insanely easy, and you can impress your family and friends with a little holiday tin of homemade fudge with less effort than watering plants.

fudge (1 of 3)Did I mention it’s peanut butter and chocolate? Oh yes.

My kid stopped liking peanut butter about a year ago. I’m starting to wonder who her mom is now. Because I LOVE peanut butter. She used to love peanut butter, and I even tried to tempt her with these. Nope. I tried Resses Peanut Butter Cups… nada.

If only I could get her to feel the same way about Butterfingers.

A few notes about this recipe: It takes a while for it to set… several hours. Be patient. It does firm up into a smooth and creamy fudge. Depending on the humidity in the air, and how cold your fridge is, I almost tossed this recipe as a fail when it hadn’t set up after several hours in the fridge, but I decided to “sleep on it” and I woke up to the best bi layer fudge I have had in years. 🙂
