    I don't see how this recipe doesn't have more reviews, it's just crazy! This was crazy good and super easy to make. I thought for sure I would have ruined this fudge because of constantly having to leave it unattended to get my 2 year old out of things she not allowed to get into. But no it still came out perfect. The only thing I forgot was the vanilla because I was distracted, otherwise followed the recipe to a T. I have tried other Fudge recipes that said easy and fool proof only to have a liquid mess. Being that I had some baking chocolate that was a month away from expiring I wanted to use it up somehow and figured I could melt it and pour it over the top. Very decadent and rich and the chocolate was a nice touch. Next time I want to add some nuts to it now that I have a recipe that I know will work for me. You can also cook in the summer and not worry that it will drastically heat your house which is a huge plus for me being that I live in the desert. Overall, great recipe!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :-)

    This recipe is very similar to another one on this site so after reading both I felt I had a good idea of how to make a successful pb fudge. I used a half cup of condensed milk and then one cup of peanut butter. I did not use any butter or margarine in the recipe at all. After bringing the sugar, cocoa, milk to a rolling boil (which took some time on a medium to medium low heat) I then poured this mixture into a large glass bowl that held the peanut butter and vanilla. I beat this until everything had noticeably thickened before putting the fudge into my aluminum foil Pam sprayed nine by nine inch pan. I did taste test what remained in the bowl and it was over the top decadent. After cooling a bit on the counter the pan of fudge is firming up in the fridge for a few hours before cutting. I did sprinkle some chopped honey roasted peanuts on top of the fudge before it set up too much. I think this will be a wonderful holiday gift for family and friends! And, so easy, too!
