Chunky Peanut Butter Fudge

  
These are a “GREAT” super sweet treat! With just only 4 ingredients and only about 5 mins to make, it’s a great recipe to have when your short on time. I don’t use my microwave that often except for heating up leftovers and melting chocolate but, using one to make this quick and easy fudge recipe I guess I’ll go against my microwave convictions?  Since the holidays are fastly approaching, this is the perfect recipe to make when you want something quick and simple with out all the mess and more importantly the EXTRA pots and pans. 

3 cups Chunky Peanut butter

4 tablespoons butter

2 1/2 cups Powdered sugar

1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

Melt Peanut butter and butter in a microwave safe bowl on high for 1 min. Remove and stir together. Mix in powdered sugar and then granulated sugar. Once mixture is fully combined, (fudge will be almost of a cookie dough  batter consistency) press mixture down into a 8×8 non sick pan. Freeze for 45 mins to an hour. Cut into squares and serve. ( This  recipe makes about 12 depending how big you cut your squares. If making more, just double the recipe. 

Prep time: approx 5 mins

Makes about 12 squares

Peanut butter and Chocolate pretzel bars

   
 
I must say, I’m not a total chocolate lover but, occasionally I do enjoy the whole chocolate and peanut butter combo. I had seen something very similar the other day on Facebook and thought ummm?? YES Please?? So I decided to make my own version. Very similar to the way I  make my PB and Chocolate truffles but, flat and with pretzels added. This is a total no bake recipe and is super easy to make and just SO GOOD!!! 

2 bags semi sweet or milk  chocolate chips

1 bag peanut butter chips 

3 1/2 cups powdered sugar

2 cups granulated sugar 

3 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup butter

12-13 pretzel rods 

Pour 1 bag of chocolate chips and 1/4 bag of peanut butter chips into a bowl. Microwave on high for about 1 1/2 minutes removing and stirring half way through. Pour melted mixture into a 8×8 Square pan. 

Place about 12-13 pretzel rods on top of melted chocolate and peanut butter-mixture.  

Melt butter and peanut butter in microwave on high. Stir together and mix  in both granulated and powdered sugar. Scoop PB mixture onto pretzel rods spreading and pressing down to smooth and fit. 

Melt the other bag of chocolate chips and 1/4 more of the PB chips the  same way as the first. Pour over PB spread. 

Melt about a half cup of peanut butter chips in a bowl microwaved on high. Once melted, dollop melted PB chips over top. Using a toothpick, swipe horizontally and vertically to make swirls. 

Freeze for about a 1/2 hr. Cut into squares and enjoy. 

Makes approx 16 bars depending on big or small you decide to cut them

Prep time: about 10-12 mins

Freeze for approx 1/2 hr.
