When I need a quick dessert for a party or dinner, or just to give someone a special treat, this is my go to when time is short. I promise you, this will be the easiest dessert/fudge you’ve ever made! Seriously only takes 5 minutes to whip it up! I made some today when I needed a homemade touch for a gift basket because my time was limited.
You’ll need 3 ingredients:
40 oz jar of Peanut Butter, a 16 oz tub of cream cheese frosting, and a bag of milk chocolate chips (optional).
Warm the frosting 20 seconds in a microwave safe bowl.
Add approximately half the peanut butter to the frosting and mix well.
Spread in a 9×9 pan lined with parchment paper (if you don’t want the fudge to stick). 😉
Scatter the chocolate chips on top of the fudge and carefully press them into the fudge. They’ll fall right off after the fudge sets if you don’t press them in.
Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
Today, as I said, I was putting these in a gift basket, so I wanted something cute, but easily kept. I had some mason jars on hand, as well as a roll of brown kraft paper I got here inexpensively. (Just a tip – brown kraft paper has so many uses so it’s GREAT to keep on hand!) Anyway, I cut a small piece and placed under the mason jar lid and tied some twine around it to top it off. Makes for a simple, but cute gift.
And there you have it, friends. 5 minutes! Just see if you can keep from eating the whole pan of fudge in a day!
til the next time,
