Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Monique in LA

This is a recipe my mother used. It is something we made for holiday dinners each year. It's very sweet, but always disappears. Serving size depends on just how much of a sugar rush you want per piece!

Was looking for a recipe to use up some marshmallows. I thought the texture of this recipe was a little weird, more like a nougat than a creamy fudge. I still liked the flavor but felt that there was too much sugary sweetness and not enough peanut butter. After trying a bite, I melted some semi-sweet chocolate chips and spread over the top. Made for a pretty good tasting candy, but not quite fudge.
