Chocolate Frosted Peanut Butter Fudge

READY IN: 40mins
Top Review by CoffeeB

I've had this recipe saved for quite some time knowing that I would definitely be making it for my holiday baking. What's not to love about this? Of course being the p.b. freak that I am I knew it would be 5 stars. I omitted the peanuts per family specifications and did the marbled effect for something a little different. LOVED IT!!
