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.
