1/2 cup butter (1 unsalted cream butter stick)
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups confectioners' sugar


Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over sifted confectioners' sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth; pour into an 8x8 inch dish. Chill until firm and cut into squares.

*Can't beat this. My mom has been wanting fudge but I wanted something I didn't have to drag the candy thermometer out for. This was easy to make and turned out beautifully. It was a quarter gone before I even had a chance to chill it. The only times we've ever got fudge was from the fair and this is better. Even with *gasp* 5 cups of sugar in this recipe it's not overwhelmingly sweet. Great for parties or gifts.
