Why I feel the need to wait until the absolute last minute every year to try and bake is beyond me. Baking is something I love and is on my very long to-do list of things to improve (especially cake decorating!), but I’m hoping this year wasn’t an absolute fail. I didn’t taste test anything, so I guess I’ll find out the hard way, LOL. (People taking a bite and trying to hide the disgust while complementing how wonderful it tastes. I know you know what I mean!)

So this year I did have 2 helpers:

I made fudge and chocolate covered pretzels with mama one day.

 

And my 9-month-old Chihuahua supervised the next day! He says yum!    


Peanutbutter Fudge (No Fail with proper tips!)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 4-1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 7 cups confectioners’ sugar
  1. Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. Stir in brown sugar and milk.
  3. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla.
  5. Pour over confectioners’ sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth. (Not pictured)

Pour into a dish (silicone works best, if not something foil covered).

Chill until firm and cut into squares. Yum!

Tips I have learned making this fudge:

  • If it comes out runny, add a little more confectioners’ sugar until desired consistency.
  • If it comes out too thick, add a little more milk until desired consistency.

 

Even my peanut butter-hating puppy had a tiny bite and loved it. (I know, what dog hates peanut butter!)
