FUDGE!

One of my favorite things to eat this time of year is fudge! Here are 2 VERY easy and fast recipes for fudge. We love them both!

Peanut Butter Fudge

2 cups sugar
dash of salt
2/3 cup evaporated milk
3 tablespoons peanut butter (heaping)
1 teaspoon margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine sugar, salt and evaporated milk. Boil for 3 minutes. Stirring constantly. Take off the stove and add peanut butter, margarine, and vanilla. Stir. Pour into buttered 8x8 pan or on to a buttered plate. Let cool and enjoy.

Five Minute Fudge

2 Tablespoons butter
2/3 cup undiluted evaporated milk
1 2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups (4 ounce) miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cup (1 1/2 6 ounce packages) semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Combine butter, evaporated milk, sugar and salt in sauce pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Bring to full boil. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in marshmallows, chocolate pieces, vanilla and nuts. Stir vigorously for 1 minute (until marshmallows melt and blend). Pour into 8 inch square buttered pan. Cool. Cut into squares.

where i"m not a fan of chocolate fudge, I'm a HUGE pb fudge fan, and didn't think with the recipe that looked so simple that it would be sooooo good. Best pb fudge ever, and SO easy!
