For all you peanut butter lovers....this is similar to peanut butter fudge, but with a more creamier texture, topped with a layer of smooth chocolate. Although the recipe calls for a layer of chopped peanuts on the bottom, they can be omitted if desired, or use any chopped nuts that you desire. This is a very rich treat, so cut into small squares!

I have a recipe similar to this called Two-tone fudge. This is a much easier recipe and less complicated. I did omit the peanuts, but I'm sure any type of nut would be a welcome addition. An easy fudge recipe for your Christmas platter~ Made for KK"s recipetag.
