  2. I have made this recipe countless times now in my dorm microwave. I have made just peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter by adding five packets of hot chocolate mix, and brownie flavored by adding brownie mix. As well as added in many toppings such as crushed butterfinger, oreos, chocolate chips and more. Thanks so much for this one!
  3. Made this several times- lost the recipe-OMG- found it again! Thank goodness I found it again- this stuff is fantastic and easy. Makes great gifts! Thanks for posting. Can't wait to get this made again- Off to the kitchen I go;-)
  4. This is my first time attempting peanut butter fudge, and WOW...this was so easy, I could not hardly wait for it to chill so I could try it...it is super, I will be including this in my Christmas Goodie's container that I will give as gifts. Thank you..Ronda OHIO
  5. I have made this. I will never make any other pnutbtr fudge again. It is smooth and creamy, has a wonderful flavor and is very easy. I tried a canned frosting and pnutbtr microwave fudge that turned out more like candy once because it was easy... This is true fudge. It was perfect. My family an coworkers make me buy a gallon jar of pnutbtr every Christmas and make this fudge until the jar is gone...Lot of fudge, lotta flavor.
