This may be the easiest fudge I’ve ever made. Peanut Butter Fudge cooked in the microwave, then topped with chocolate and chopped up pieces of mini peanut butter cups. Perfect for any beginner cook. The bonus perk is you won’t heat up your house during the summer while making this. Decadent yet easy to make. That’s my kind of fudge!
There’s nothing better than fudge, it reminds me so much of my childhood. I love that sugary punch it delivers in such a small bite. Peanut butter fudge is seriously decadent. I really don’t think you can beat peanut butter fudge. Well, unless you top it with melted chocolate and tons of pieces of mini peanut butter cups. Now that my friends is packing a punch that will keep your sugar cravings quelled for hours. Or like 5 minutes till you grab another piece.
The thing about most fudge recipes is they are wicked hard to make, or they are step heavy, or they are just plain temperamental. Most people get intimidated by fudge. However this fudge, well, this one should inspire no fear. It’s made in the microwave. Every step of it. It is the easiest fudge I’ve ever made in my life. It’s a thing of beauty.
I usually make my peanut fudge on the stove top but with the temperature sky rocketing here, and my a/c barely keeping up with it, I knew I needed another solution. One that did not require me to turn on the oven or stove top. I happened upon Alton Brown’s recipe for microwave fudge and since I find his recipes intriguing I knew I had to test this out. It does not disappoint.
Since this fudge has a special purpose I had to up the wow factor a bit. Plain peanut butter fudge was not going to cut it today. So I decided to drizzle some really good quality chocolate over top of the fudge. Then I chopped up mini peanut butter cups and tossed those on top. Sheer perfection if you ask me. In a tiny little sugar package.
If you’re thinking to yourself “wow I’d really love some of this decadent Peanut Butter Fudge topped with Chocolate and Mini Peanut Butter Cups”, well, you’re in luck. This fudge is up for grabs. It’s part of an online auction for Muffins for Muffin. So you can get your hands on a batch of it without doing any of the work. Well, if you consider popping things in the microwave work. I know I certainly do.
Muffins for Muffin is an event being held today by my friend Kita of Pass the Sushi. My regular readers may recognize her name. I’ve gabbed about Kita on occasion here at Cravings. Kita is a fellow blogger, a dear friend and she’s also my website designer. She also has a heart of gold. Kita is raising money to help a very special pit bull named Muffin. This poor little bundle of joy was badly abused and she is in the care of Response-A-Bull-Rescue. She will require a lot of medical attention on her path to recovery. She is with her foster parent now, but Kita is hoping one day she may be able to adopt this precious pup and bring her home to be part of her family. I sincerely hope that happens as I think Muffin and Kita are made for each other. Kita cares so deeply for this dog, and I know that her love is helping to soothe both Muffin’s wounds and her heart.
So today we’re all banding together to help raise money for Muffin by holding an online bake sale. To get your hands on this fudge just head over to Pass the Sushi to bid. I’ve donated a batch of this fudge, and I’ve also donated a Vanilla Gift Box Set as well. So feel free to bid on one, or both.
Many of you know we’re huge animal lovers at the B household. We have a horse, 3 kitties, 3 birds and a dog. I often joke about our dog Malia, who I still like to call a puppy. She is smart as a whip yet unwilling to learn when it’s something she’s not interested in. I refer to her often as the Demon Spawn of Satan. And even with all her antics and ankle biting I could never imagine life without her.
