Quick and Easy 5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge

This Five (Pantry) Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge is a great emergency fudge... It whips up in no time with items most of us easily have on-hand. Emergency fudge??? Can you relate? Yea, I thought so:@) Creamy and smooth, and of course it's peanut buttery and sweet. This is also easy enough for teenagers to make (read: great for sleep-overs or teacher gifts). And once again I suggest fudge for folks that don't bake but would like to bring something homemade to holiday gatherings. I think you'll be happy if you try this one folks!

I made a half batch in a 4x8" bread pan lined with Reynolds Release.
I couldn't smooth the top so I added the chocolate sprinkles and pushed them down with my fingers. Any seasonal sprinkles would look great.

One note: This does make a thinner batch (maybe 1/2" high) fudge. 
Either use a smaller dish or increase the recipe by half if you like a thicker piece of fudge.

Quick and Easy Five Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge-from SimpleFood365.com
2 C sugar
1/2 C milk-I used Half and Half
1/4 tsp salt-I used Kosher
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 C peanut butter, creamy or chunky-your choice-I used creamy
  1. Add sugar and milk to large sauce pan, heat over medium-high and stir until the sugar melts.
  2. Stop stirring and let mixture come to a boil. Set timer for about 2.5 minutes (I set my timer for 2 minutes and then one-Mississippi'd to the count of 30:@). Don't stir, just wait.
  3. Remove from heat, add salt, vanilla and peanut butter. Stir quickly until just combined.
  4. Pour into foil lined 8x8" pan, quickly smooth top. Cool completely, cut and serve.
Have a sticky sweet happy day:@)
