A very rich fudge with a peanut butter fudge layer and a chocolate fudge layer. This recipe combines ingredients from 2 other recipes along with a few small changes. Thanks to ESG for the Peanut Butter Fudge (#115656) and eza91804 for the 2 Minute Microwave Fudge (#43703). Note: Cooking time is the time needed to chill.

  1. Line an 8 x 8 x 2 inch pan with waxed paper. Make sure there is a bit of overlap so you can release the fudge from the pan later.
  2. Peanut Butter Fudge Layer:.
  3. Place butter and peanut butter in a 1 quart microwave safe bowl.
  4. Microwave for 2 minutes on high.
  5. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes.

  7. Press into the bottom of the lined pan.
  8. Place a second piece of waxed paper on the surface of the fudge and set aside.

  10. Sift confectioners’ sugar, cocoa and salt into a 1 quart microwave safe bowl. (I use the same bowl with the peanut butter remnants wiped out).
