Matt's Easy Peasy Peanut Butter Fudge


2 sticks of butter
1 cup of peanut butter
4 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 bar of bakers chocolate


1) Combine the butter and peanut butter in a 4-quart microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap.

2) Microwave for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. (Use caution when removing this mixture from the microwave, it will be very hot.)

3) Add the vanilla and powdered sugar to the peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. The mixture will become hard to stir and lose its sheen.

4) Spread mixture into a buttered 8 by 8-inch pan lined with parchment paper.

5) Melt chocolate in microwave and pour on top of the mixture.

6) Refrigerate until cool, about 2 hours.

7) Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week
