Some things, frankly, should not be easy.

This Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge is one of those things. The fact that it is easy, is made using store cupboard ingredients and takes only 35 minutes from start to finish just means that it can be in my mouth within a blink.

Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

1.5 cups chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate, because that’s what I had, it would work with milk but not white)

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup peanut butter

METHOD

Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.

Heat on full power for 30 seconds, then remove and stir.

Heat again for another 30 seconds, then stir again. Mixture should be smooth by this point, but you may need to microwave it 1-2 more times in 30 second increments depending on your microwave. You can also melt this mixture over a double boiler if you do not want to use a microwave. You need to be a little careful not to burn the mixture though or it will be grainy.

When mixture is smooth, pour into a suitable receptacle and refrigerate for 30 minutes or more. When ready to serve, cut into squares. Store extra fudge in refrigerator or freezer.

Ha ha, I love that last bit, store extra fudge in the freezer, bahahahahahah, extra fudge, who ever heard of that!
