unsweetened cocoa powder
I followed the suggestions to microwave the ingredients and made only a small batch (being reasonably wary and only one person) and the result was a peanut butter flavored chocolate like fudge. it's similar to the Microwave fudge recipe by gayle (I think that's her name) on this site, not a terrible fudge at all. This was worth every star for ease and for the tinkering of others. will make again next time i need a fast fix.
This recipe is much improved by cooking in microwave. Use 1/4 cup of hard margarine or butter and 1/4 cup peanut butter. Combine butter, peanut butter and cocoa in microwave on high for 1 min 30 sec. Add remaining ingredients stir and cook on high for another minute. This will yeild a smoother, more solid fudge.
Fast and delicious, what more can you ask for? I used around a pound of confectioners' sugar (I didn't measure but used around ½ a 2-pound bag), ½ cup peanut butter, 6 TBS cocoa, 6 TBS milk, and 1 TBS vanilla. I melted the PB, sugar, and cocoa together in the microwave for 90 seconds, mixed in the milk and vanilla, and cooked another 30 seconds. I then beat it with a wooden spoon for a minute. Instead of an 8x8" pan, I used a 3.5"x5" mini loaf pan. It was ready to eat after around 45 minutes in the freezer! Thanks for sharing, Barbara, and thanks for your helpful review, Marg Buchanan!
i used 1 cup of peanut butter instead of 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1/2 cup cocoa powder and it was still an amazing recipe so quick and easy i think it took 3 minutes to make thank you!!!!
I love this recipe. The powdered sugar is hardly noticeable in this recipe compared to others I have tried. In another review someone mentioned microwaving it and I agree that it helps make it creamier. The one difference I would do is leave the peanut butter at 1/2 cup if you want the stronger peanut butter taste and either omit the butter they suggest or add maybe 1/3 of a cup. In the future I might add a whole cup to increase the peanut butter flavor.
Great recipe!! I had a craving for a peanut butter and chocolate dessert - this definitely took care of it in a flash!! Very simple and very quick - thanks for sharing!!
the taste is good, an equal mix of peanut butter to chocolate. but, i didn't have much luck with making this recipe. the fudge wouldn't harden after sitting in the fridge overnight. i mistakenly put in 2 cups of confectioner's sugar (1 pound = 4 cups), so i had to remix in the missing 2 cups! even after the addition, it still wouldn't harden. i ended up leaving it in the freezer overnight, which did the trick, but i have to keep it in there otherwise it gets very soft of gooey in the fridge. don't get me wrong, the taste is good, but i will try a different recipe before i come back to this one again.
Sooo easy and very good!! My kids love it and its great for that quick chocolate fix!
