Weekend Sweets: Peanut Butter Fudge

Who says it needs to be Christmas to make fudge? Not me. This peanut butter fudge recipe from Just Because I am Me is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G (and really easy). I've tried around ten different recipes from her blog, mostly dinner stuff, and they've all been so freaking good! Go check out her blog for tons of deliciousness.

The original recipe doesn't call for chocolate, but I thought "What's better than peanut butter?  Peanut butter and chocolate!" so I added some chocolate for an extra dose of gluttony.
1 18oz jar crunchy peanut butter
1 7oz jar marshmallow cream
2 C sugar
2 C brown sugar
3/4 C milk
Some chocolate chips (optional)

Step 1: Empty the entire contents of your peanut butter jar and your marshmallow cream jar into a bowl and mix them together.  Set them aside for a minute.

Step 2: Put your sugar, brown sugar, and milk in a pot and heat on the stove. Stir continually until the sugary stuff comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute.

Step 3: Take the boiling mixture and pour it into the bowl with the peanut butter marshmallow mix and mix it up until everything is nice and combined.

Step 4: Pour everything into a greased baking sheet pan for thinner fudge or a 9x13 dish for thick fudge. If you're feeling extra sweet, while the mixture is still hot, sprinkle on a few chocolate chips. The heat from the fudge will start to melt them and when then get gooey, you can spread them out on the top. Enjoy!
