Pretty much the tastiest fudge ever.

I probably don't seem like the type of person to post a recipe, but deep down, I'm a wannabe foodie, and two of my very favorite shows on TV right now are Good Eats and Iron Chef (needless to say, I'm pretty psyched for Iron Chef America: The Series, as it combines my appreciation for both of these things). Also, if you've noticed, I link to Alton Brown's website over to the right there.

Anyway, this is a recipe for peanut butter fudge I got off of Good Eats (the episode entitled "Fudge Factor"), and it's probably one of the best tasting things I've ever consumed in my life. It's just too good not to share with the masses, so here you go:

"1 cup butter, plus more for greasing pan
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pound powdered sugar

Microwave butter and peanut butter for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. Add vanilla and powdered sugar to peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. Pour into a buttered 8 by 8-inch pan lined with waxed paper. Place a second piece of waxed paper on the surface of the fudge and refrigerate until cool. Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container for up to a week."

I never said it was healthy, just really tasty. Make two batches: one for your holiday gathering and one for yourself. You'll be glad you did. Fatter, but glad.
