Easy Peanut Butter Fudge
What’s great about this fudge is that you can whip it up before dinner and, by the time you’ve cleared the plates, it will be ready. What’s also great is that you can experiment with as many combinations of ingredients and flavors as you like.

You can even add butterscotch and dried fruits. You get my point — the possibilities are pretty much endless. — Terri Ciccone
