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. Reverse the peanut butter and chocolate chip ratios to make chocolate peanut butter fudge, sprinkle the top of the chocolate fudge with almonds, or adorn with peppermint chips and pieces of crushed peppermint candies for a more festive fudge. You can even add butterscotch and dried fruits. You get my point — the possibilities are pretty much endless. — Terri Ciccone
